Return to coached run sessions on Wednesdays for our adult members
(amended July 2021)
We will be holding 2 bookable sessions as below . No spectators/guests are allowed in the stadium. Guest athletes wishing to try a session must contact the coaches beforehand to see if a place is available. Contact the club via the membership page to register for 3 trial sessions. Only those who have completed all their contatct details and booked a place via the coaches can attend
Access to the track will be via the lower car park gates nearest the tunnel under the railway line at the eastern end of the track.
The group will meet near the 300m start in front of the throws cage.
We will aim to have two coaches minimum between them coaching 20 athletes. We will provide a 60 minute coached session comprising a balanced mix of drills and technique training and intensive intervals.
Club member athletes will need to use the spreadsheet found in ‘Phoenix (run) training’ WhatsApp group description to book their 60 minute time slot ( anyone unable to use Whatsapp please contact the coaches Trial members should contact the coaches to see if space is available and specify which sessions they can attend): Trial members must have entered their details on the membership system before requesting a place.
Pleae wear suitable run clothing and warm or waterproof layers as appropriate. Bring water but please ensure you are well hydrated beforehand. Both sessions can cater for all standards but this is an intensive approx 5k interval session aimed at those who want to improve their running speed so be prepared to work hard. As this is a coached session you need to be able to hear the coaches and also hear other runners for safety so we DO NOT allow the use of headphones whilst running.
