We meet on Monday, Wednesdays and Saturdays to run. Monday's session is a social/recovery run and gives members the chance to run one or two laps of the town at a steady pace. In addition to these sessions the club also runs a one hour track session at Stantonbury on the first and third Monday of every month from 7.30 PM
Training sessions take place every Wednesday and cater for all abilities. The sessions are run by qualified coaches/run leaders. We are regulalry on the hills but in between we will take in speed sessions, fartlek, pyramids and occasionally a 'hot lap' of Olney. We almost always end the sessions with a well-earned drink in the pub. See our training schedule for more details of these sessions.
Beginners and new starters are welcome to join the club runs, however, for your own health and safety, you should be able to run approximately 4 miles in under 50 minutes (11-12 minutes per mile) in order to stay with other runners.
Saturday runs are LSD (long slow distance) and are often cross country. These runs vary in distance, but cater for all abilities as there are cut off points on the routes. Once we're finished we head off to the coffee shop for our reward!
During the winter months we meet at Olney Middle School for an hour an a half of strength and conditioning work. These sessions are a fantastic way to improve core strength and stability and a great way to kick start the weekend.
During the summer months these sessions move to Emberton Park
Please note that the Monday and Saturday run sessions are not formally organised by the club and will not necessarily have a qualified coach or run leader in attendance. These will be run at your own risk.
