Thursday Club Run_
Thursday Club Run
Each Thursday evening we gather for a medium distance run – in the summer on the Downs and in the winter on the streets. The distances vary between 6.5 and 8.5 miles. To accommodate runners of all abilities we deploy a 'run-back' system with faster runners returning to the back of the group at intervals ensuring that no one runs alone. In addition, slower runners can take a shortcut if they need one. The starting points vary in the summer and leave from Withdean Stadium in the winter but always at 6:30pm. There is always a designated run leader for each session and their contact details together with route maps are published beforehand.
