Welcome to our running group
Next run: Thursday 19 September 2019
About our group
We're an informal group that meets to chun (that's chatter and run) and not take our running too seriously!
We're supportive and only competitive with ourselves - to be better than our own best
In 2018 we held 93 RunTogether sessions for almost 800 runners. We're led my Michaela, a qualified Coach in Running Fitness and certified GuideRunner for visually impaired athletes. We also have qualified Leaders in Running Fitness to support our sessions.
Group size is a maximum of 20 runners except beginners sessions which are smaller, so please book your slot to secure your place
You can find out more about us on Facebook
We run weekly Keep Me Going (Keep It Up!) sessions (intervals and hill training) which you can book as your diary permits. These sessions are Thursday evenings at 730pm at Whitelands Farm Sports Ground. Suitable for any runner at more than 3km distance who wants to improve. These sessions are not a course, but a variety of activities including relays, sprints, fartlek, hill, continuous intervals, pyramids and other coached activities to improve form, speed and stamina.
From Sept 2 2019, we'll be leading a new 8 week course for beginners to achieve 5k through a RunTogether programme. Over 65 runners have completed this plan in Bicester with us (N.B. This course is FULLY SUBSCRIBED as of 20 August 2019)
Jog Squad's Beginner plan:
- Guided sessions twice a week (Usually Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings for approx 45 min to an hour)
- One further run/walk each week will be required as 'self managed run' following the Run Coach's guidance
You can attend one or two of the guided sessions a week - but if you only attend one, you'll need to do 2 x 'self managed run' each week.
Each of the guided sessions costs just £3.75 to attend (discount for multiple sessions booked) and our group benefits from a closed supportive Facebook page to share motivation and ideas
At the end of the course we'll attend Bicester ParkRun together on Saturday 2nd November and complete the 5km route
In order to prepare for this course and get to know some of your fellow group members, we'll be hosting a briefing session with coffee (no running at this session!) on Monday 2 September at 6.30pm at Whitelands Farm Sports Ground (please do attend, you’ll get to meet others in the group and find out all about the plan!)
