Regular Club Run – Wednesdays, 6:30pm

We usually meet at Wirksworth Leisure Centre, at 6:30pm.  Each week, we have suggested a route, which the conversational group will usually follow.  However, the club massively welcomes lead routes, so if you want to lead a run on local roads in the winter, or over the local fields in the summer, please just let us know.  We are also looking for volunteers to organise ‘Away runs’ over the summer, so please volunteer early and we’ll get this schedule updated.  Here are the details for planned Wednesday club runs:

Speed, strength and hills training – Mondays, 6:30pm

All of our sessions are designed so that EVERYONE is included and your pace is accounted for.  One runner was heard saying “I really like Monday nights”.  It’s unclear whether this person attended Monday night training but it’s still a good quote for the website.
