Training


Training with Buckley Runners

 

Buckley Runners meets at Buckley Sports Centre (at Elfed High School) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We meet at 7.00 with an aim to set off at 7.15.

 

The coach and many of our experienced runners will be there to provide support and advice.

The quicker runners usually do interval training on Tuesdays and a timed run between 5 and 7 miles on Thursdays.

Other runners will do between 4 and 6 at a steady pace. This group can be a mixture of slower runners such as people recovering from injury, illness or after marathons and new runners. Pace is variable depending on who is there.

We have an “improvers programme” to support less experienced runners and help them to get to a point where they can run with the other groups.

Groups of runners often meet at other times such as Saturday mornings for speed work or Sunday for a run on the Clwydians.
