Weekly Training Activities
These are the set weekly training activities. See calendar for exceptions to this schedule.
Join us on Monday nights for Dumfries Running Club beginners and improvers club. We meet at Nunholm Sports club between 18:15 and 18:30 with the aim to start at 18:30.
Running group options are usually from 2 miles up to 6 miles. Groups will be organised on the night and all will have a designated leader and rear runner.
During the winter the club choses routes that are safe and well lit which are usually always on pavements and cycle paths. In the summer, there are a wider selection of routes as the light nights allow us to use country roads and tracks.
All club runners are strongly advised to wear hi-viz clothing - particularly on dark evenings.
Warm ups, cool downs and streching is encouraged to avoid injury.
We ask that all runners look out for each other when running with the club and it is a club aim for a runner to never be left on their own. The pace of a group should always cater for the slowest in the group and this may mean splitting a group into smaller numbers. Please be considerate to your fellow runners so that everyone can enjoy their run.
Tuesday night training runs are for all members of the club.
Meet at Nunholm sports club at 18:15 - 18:30 with aim to begin at 18:30
We use a number of different training sessions on a Tuesday which include longer distance routes, hill training/reps and interval training.
All routes can be extended or shortened to suits the runners who are there. Usual distance for Tuesday nights range from 3-12 miles.
Routes are decided on the nights and a group leader will be appointed on the night.
Pace groups vary considerably but all runners will be catered for and no runner will ever be left to run on their own.
