Training

New session! Starting 4th April

Mondays – 6.30pm – Stratfield Brake. A shorter group run of around 3-5 miles. Improvers welcome! We aim to run together as a group; those who wish to run faster can do so and loop back.

To attend these training sessions we ask that you can run for c.30 minutes without stopping. If you need help with this please get in touch and we’d be happy to advise on training plans. See our poster below for more info!

Tuesdays 6:30pm – Stratfield Brake – Group run. A 7/8 mile group run, with regular turn-back points for those wanting a shorter run

Thursdays 6:30pm – Stratfield Brake – Speed training session.

We meet in the foyer of the clubhouse at Stratfield Brake.

Please note that you must be aged 16 or over to participate in our training nights

Summer Training

On Tuesdays we will run various country routes, depending on light and weather. See our ROUTES for some idea of where we run.

Winter Training

During the winter we are restricted to running on lit roads. Our most common routes are into Oxford and back. We recommend wearing high-viz clothing during these runs.

Thursday Training

On Thursdays we do speed work. We alternate between Pyramid sessions in Kidlington, meet and retreat sessions in Garden City and Fartlek runs around Kidlington. We also regularly hold hill training sessions on a Thursday, these are held in Botley in the winter or Blenheim Palace in the summer. During the summer we also hold speed sessions on the field at Stratfield Brake.
