This group aims to cater for all abilities of joggers and runners. Support and advice is provided by the jog leaders who will be with you every step of the way during the class.
After a gentle warm up in the stadium the class is broken into four groups with each group having its own jog leader before heading out for a walk/jog/run. Guidance is given as to which group is best suited to your ability. The groups are separated as follows:
Jog/walk group – as the name suggests
Run group – is aimed at those who can jog for 3 miles/5K. Pace is not a consideration for this group.
Running group – for those who can run 3 miles/5K at a steady pace of about 10 minute miles.
Development group – this is aimed at those who have competed in 5K, 10K or half marathon races and wish to improve their times or distance. This group will run at a comfortable 9 minute mile pace for 4 miles and will run quicker or further than this in certain aspects of their training.
New members are welcome. There is expert guidance and support on hand.
