Training Nights 

At our training meetings the runners split into 4 or 5 groups, each with a coach and graded according to ability.

The training nights are:

Monday (6:50 for a 7:00pm start)

We split into ability groups, mostly doing a Fartlek session. We also have a walkers' group for those getting back into running after an injury - it might be walking but it's still hard work! In summer we also have an off-road group with various venues.

  • Winter - The Quarry by Porthill Bridge
  • Summer - The Quarry by Bandstand (or off-road)

Wednesday (6:50 for a 7:00pm start)

Wednesday evenings are classed as 'efforts' night with groups doing either hard efforts, intermediate efforts or improver efforts, all according to ability. However, to cater for those who might be returning from injury or who don't wish to do efforts, there is also a group that goes for a slow, steady run. If too many go with one group we split it into two.

All year - The Shirehall, off Preston St

Thursday (7:00 until 8:00pm)

The track sessions are for all ability levels and normally intervals or reps.

All year - track behind Shrewsbury College (London Rd) Sports Centre

Most training is on the road but in summer we go along different routes, river bank, woods, parks etc. Every week is different and the coaches work very hard to make it interesting and 'challenging'.
