Monthly Everyone Welcome

Our “Everyone Welcome” runs are usually held on the last club night of each month are aimed at new runners, not-so-regular runners, and those returning to running after a break. These will be suitable for all, and will include a warm-up, a walk/run loop and stretches at the end. The session will last for approx. 45 minutes.
 

We meet in The Railway pub for our club nights. Sessions cost £1 for paid up members of the club and £2 for visitors.

 

Runners are responsible for and requested to:

  • sign in for each session
  • listen carefully to the run brief to ensure they are aware of the route they are going on before setting off
  • be of appropriate health and fitness to run
  • ensure they are fully warmed up before running and that they cool down and stretch at the end of their run
  • wear appropriate clothing for the time of year and conditions
    hi-visibility clothing and lights - occasionally a head torch - are needed for dark nights
  • run with someone of a similar pace and if unsure of the route to double back to the tail runner.

If you’re already a runner and have heard of ‘speed work’ or ‘interval’ sessions or wondered what ‘fartlek’ is and what is involved – come along and try something different. If you would like to get faster at running, if you have a goal to complete a 5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon in a certain time, or would just like to feel stronger and fitter why not give one of these sessions a go? 

We will be working with a group of runners in Marple who want to improve their times for marathons, half marathons, 10ks, and also Marple parkrun which is every Saturday morning.

We also run our own C25K (couch to 5km) group pub to parkrun – to assist people who would like some support and guidance about how to improve their fitness levels. 

Working out in the fresh air and braving the elements is invigorating, all our runners comment on how energised they feel after training in this way. You work harder because there is a small element of competitiveness which also makes it great fun.
