In March, the committee postponed club running until further notice. This included interval sessions at Imberhorne.
However, EA revised guidance on 1 June says we can;
- Exercise outdoors only in groups of up to 6 people providing athletes/runners maintain social distancing advice i.e. 2m apart if from a different household, and;
- A coach and up to 5 athletes or runners can train together provided they maintain social distancing i.e. 2m apart if from a different household.
Every week, we have a number of different days which we run and with each run, we try and vary the route to keep things interesting. We use a number of different trails around the Surrey, Sussex and Kent countryside and a mixture of road as well as trail/off-road.
We meet in all weather, come rain, snow or shine, usually at the Victoria Sports and Social Club in Lingfield.
7pm. This is normally a 5-7 miles run. Usually trail based in the light summer evenings and road during the darker winter nights.
7pm. At Imberhorne School, East Grinstead. This is a shorter, faster session on tarmac (in winter) for beginners and those who want to improve. Well-lit road and/or playground during the darker winter nights, and grass track/trail when conditions allow.
7pm. This is a similar run to the Tuesday meet.
9am. A group meets on a Saturday to run a variety of routes, but usually for a longer distance. Starting from about 8-10 miles.
10am. Another group meets on a Saturday at 10 and runs a 4-7 mile route.
The Victoria Club opens at 11am, which means runners can then meet for a drink and a Kit Kat.
