TUESDAY / THURSDAY - Regular Club Nights
Our regular Club Nights take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from Saltash Rugby Club in Saltash. We meet from 6:30 p.m. and runs depart at 7:00 p.m.
All runners are organised into training groups. Each group is assigned a Group Leader who arranges the session and ensures that all runners stay together as a group so that no-one runs on their own.
We have training groups at the following minute / mile paces: 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, 8:30, 9:00, 9:30, 10:00, 10:30, 11:00 & Novices
TUESDAY night sessions - we are currently running a 13-week training programme to prepare members for races. It has been devised by our Club Development Officer Steve Baker, who has coached athletes to the Commonwealth Games in the past as well as running his own sub-2:30 marathons, and you can read more here.
THURSDAY night sessions usually comprise a steady run
Winter runs are normally held around the town of Saltash or sometimes we cross the Tamar Bridge into Plymouth
In the Summer we take advantage of the countryside and lanes that surround Saltash

FRIDAY - Catch up run
There is a weekly Friday evening "catch up" run from Saltash Rugby Club for all abilities starting at about 6.15 p.m. (This is in addition to the "Absolute Beginners" group run).
It is intended to be a social run for anyone but especially those who may have missed the Tuesday / Thursday run that week and would like to run with others rather than alone.
