Welcome to our running group

Next run: Saturday 27 April 2019

About our group

We are also known as The Crazy Gang and when you meet us you will understand why. Whether it's time out from the madness of life or to train for an event, we will support you every step of the way.

When we run we never leave a man behind so if you're a tortoise rather than a hare, all members of the group know (or soon learn) to 'loop back' ensuring noone is made to feel that they're holding everyone up. It also means those faster runners get more miles done in the same time.

Current sessions are:

Tuesdays 6.30pm (lap/speed work sessions)
** Winter Wednesdays 6.30pm (approx 1 hour/5+ miles running but at a faster pace than Saturdays)**
Saturdays 8.30am (approx 1 hour/5+ miles running)

**Please note that due to the current speed of leaders and the fact it is not safe to loop in the town the pace for these runs will be a minimum of 10.30-11min/mile over the winter**

Our sessions are currently suitable for runners who are able to run for about an hour/5 miles (for group safety this is approx 12-13min per mile or quicker) apart from our Tuesday sessions.  Tuesdays are short, sharp sessions with bursts of activity followed by recovery periods, the maximum run time in one go is about 10 mins.  If you have some fitness then give our Tuesday sessions a go.

There is no charge for attending any of our sessions.

The group is currently being led by six members, all of differing abilities.
