Given the fast moving nature of the COVID-19 virus and government advice on 16 March about social distancing and non-essential travel, the committee think that it is prudent to postpone club running until further notice. This includes interval sessions at Imberhorne.
However, given the benefits that running can bring to mental health in these trying and stressful times, we would recommend that, if you do run, run alone or together in very small numbers.
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.
