Training (Autumn & Winter)

Evening Runs

Evening Runs

6.30 pm Tuesday & Thursday

During the winter our main evening runs start closer to the city and are run on the pavements.

As of the 3rd of January, Thursday runs will be from HSBC Sports Club on Limb Lane and Tuesday runs from The Hammer and Pincers Pub. The Hammer and Pincers will fine you for parking and not having a drink afterwards.
Every a Thursday there is a steady head torch run which starts from different locations in the Peak District.

Over the spring and summer months, we meet at ourpavilion in Totley.

We offer medium and steady paced groups. We aim to return to the pavilion after 90 mins and sometimes sooner. We offer road and off-road options on a Thursday thanks to our popular Improvers session.
