Adult Running Sessions (Over 16’s)

We operate four training teams based upon ability, to allow our members to identify which team would be more suited to there current ability we link each team to expected race times.

If you are unsure which team would be suitable for you then please feel free to ask one of the team coaches before the session who will help identify which team you should join.

The four training teams are based upon the following 5km times. The times are a guide, so just make sure that you are comfortable in the group, and respect the slower paced runners.

GROUP A

  • between 6–8 miles
  • Coached at Halewood by: Allan Mc
  • Up to 22 minute 5km

GROUP B

  • between 5-7 miles
  • Coached at Halewood by: Frank, John C, and Steve
  • 21-26 minute 5km

GROUP C

  • between 5-7 miles
  • Coached by: John Mc
  • 25-32 minute 5km

GROUP D

  • between 3–4 miles
  • Coached at Halewood by: Alan D’H
  • 30+ minute 5km

The overall session distance includes warm up, effort/hill session & cool down. Overall distance will vary due to the individual session details.

There may be occasions when some training groups are unavailable due to coaching resources. During these circumstances, members are to join the next appropriate group (higher or lower) and coaches will accommodate members accordingly.
