Road training

We are delighted to welcome new members to the club. The best session to start is probably the Tuesday night road running session. There should be a group to suit you, and there are lots of opportunities to branch out from there.

Please meet at 18.30 in the reception area of the clubhouse at the University track CB3 0EQ. Look out for someone wearing a bright orange 'New members' t-shirt who will meet you there and introduce you to a group. Directions to the track can be found by using the interactive map on the right.

Come down and try out a couple of sessions for free without obligation. If you like it, please join the club; if you don't like it, we'll be disappointed but you'll have given it a go....

If you're concerned you might be too slow and feel a bit self conscious don't worry; most of us felt like that at the start. To benefit from the club's current road running sessions you need to be able to run for three quarters of an hour or so at a pace of about 9 minutes per mile. There are lots of people who run much quicker - well under 6 minutes per mile - but many of us run between 7 and 9 minutes a mile pace. We're all trying to improve, or, for some of us, to minimise the decline.

Our beginners group (or close to complete beginners) who run slower than about 9 minutes per mile runs every Monday evening (excluding Bank Holidays) at 6.45pm from the University track. Please click on Running for beginners for details.

If Tuesdays are inconvenient, we also run on Thursdays. You will be made very welcome at the Thursday session. We meet at 6.30 from the track (see the map on the right for directions).

Look at the Run Cambridge website for races, results, photograhs etc.. It will give you a full idea of what the road runners get up to. It will open in a new window.

Road/off-track and track sessions are below. They are aimed at improving 10k and 5k times but are also appropriate for longer distances. Choose whichever suits you best. If you have any queries about which that might be, or would like further advice on a training programme, speak to one of the coaches.

All sessions start at the track.  Choose whichever suits you best. If you have any queries about which that might be, or would like further advice on a training programme, speak to one of the coaches.
