Training

For parents with children who would like to try a session, we recommend that you bring them along to a track evening.  The Under 11's meet on a Tuesday and Thursday evening at the running track at William Parker School at 5.30pm (for children over 11 and adults the start time is 6.30pm also on on a Tuesday and Thursday).   Please come to the main gate at the track. 

**Please note that the cost for trial sessions is £3.00 for U11's and £5.00 for the older groups and adults**  

 

A Saturday morning U11s run normally takes place alongside the adults group at 8am.  There is a closed facebook group for the U11's where all information about training is posted for all members.  For more information on how to join this group, please ask one of the coaches for details.

For adults, you can either join us on the track on a Tuesday or Thursday evening (6.30pm start) or for a road session.  Please note the trial and membership policy, for more information please click here.

For times and locations of training sessions please see the below timetable.  For club members there is our main facebook page and also a Google Group where you receive information on training sessions and fixtures.  You can request to join by emailing here.  

We welcome all abilities and hope to see you soon!

Peter Baker's group training information:

Monday 6.30 Dordrecht Way

Winter & Summer. Supported steady 4.8 mile run utilising the same course each week. People run at their own pace.

 

Tuesday 6.30 Hastings and Bexhill Rugby Club William Parker School

Winter & Summer. A speed endurance session towards the endurance end of that spectrum. This season is run on grass to minimise impact and to prevent injury. The training method can accommodate athletes who run at differing speeds as the repetitions are timed. This has proved to be suitable training for runners specialising in 800m to marathon distances.

 

Thursday 6.30 William Parker Track

Summer track based speed endurance sessions designed to train toward the speed end of the spectrum. Repetitions are set according to distance and individual times are give for each repetition in order for the athlete to gauge progress and develop pace judgement. These sessions suit athletes specialising in track based competition from 800m to 5000m.

Winter

A 2 km tempo and hill repetitions. This suits athletes running cross country and road.

 

Periodic video gait analysis and remedial drills are conducted throughout the year.  All welcome.
