Barlick Fell Runners have a structured training programme which caters for all abilities and the details are below. In addition, we have a complete beginners session which is basically a couch to 5K course and the next one will start in the Spring, when the weather gets better. The training sessions for the coming week are shown below. Further details of what is involved in each session is lower down the page.
Monday with Leanne Dinsdale
These sessions are off road over fell and trail and sometimes they are a cross fit/circuit type session. To take part, you need to be able to run 5-6 miles comfortably and turn up with off road shoes and for winter nights, a head torch. The sessions cover a wide range of abilities and the main thing is that no one is left behind as the group always keeps tracking back to the slowest runner, so that everyone is always working to their ability level. If you are not sure if this session is for you, turn up and give it a try - you will be made most welcome.
Tuesday with Nick Treitl & Andy Berry.
These sessions will be focussed on progressing abilities for both flat speed & hill strength through varied sessions. All abilities welcome & catered for, but the sessions will be demanding and will take place from various locations.
Tuesday Track Session with Harvey Grace
These sessions are for those who want to improve their speed.
Wednesday - Pub Run
These are informal sessions and cater for all abilities. Each week, those taking part meet up at a local hostelry, have a gentle running session lasting around an hour and then retire to the bar to sample the local ale and chew the fat. Everyone is welcome on these runs including none members, in fact, they are a good way to get to know the ethos of the club and decide if it is for you.
Thursday with John Boothman
This is aimed at intermediate runners, people who have completed the beginner course and want to take their running a little further. Having said that, the session also attracts the more experienced runners. The group always tracks back during a session so that no one is left behind. The better runners feel as much benefit as the less experienced as they run much further. Each week, the group will cover around 8 -10 km. In winter, trail or fell shoes are recommended, although not every week is off road. Bring along a head torch in the winter months.
