Latest Sessions

Club nights are Tuesdays and Thursdays with additional social runs on Sunday mornings. Club members, if you're not on Spond, get on it: it's easier to track who's doing what. Non spond users, updates on social media too (especially Instagram)!

Sessions Explained

Hill Reps - Held at either Llanedeyrn Road or Cefn Coed Hill, these repeats are strength and speed enhancers. Llanedeyrn Road reps are  approximately 500m long steady intervals run at your own pace. Cefn Coed Hill reps are shorter and set at 1 minute repeats. Recovery jog down.

Speed Sessions - Flat (!) reps normally between 400m - 1k in length. Number of repeats may vary. Speed intervals can sharpen your pace and help improve race day times and fitness.

2 Mile Time Trial - A loop around Roath Park lake. Run at your own pace. The sessions are normally recorded so give you a good idea of how you're progressing. Warm up and cool down sandwiched around the 2mile route. 

Weeknight Club Run - 5k -10k routes during the winter, longer options in the summer/lighter nights. Everyone sets off together and then splits according to pace and distance, agreed before setting off. No one is left behind!

Sunday Morning Long Run - Various routes and paces for 10k-14 mile distances across Cardiff. Perfect marathon and half marathon training. Nothing beats running with friends to tick those miles off. Updates are on Spond.

NB: The Tuesday sessions are regularly timed and recorded and are great for benchmarking progress throughout the year.

social sundays
