Ely Runners are pleased to announce that they are commencing their next beginners’ course on the 12th of March 2018.
The course is run by qualified coaches and is well supported by established club members. It is very friendly, and is aimed at runners of all levels and abilities: speedy types, long distance types, and the type that goes steady and wants to just enjoy it all!
The main aim of the programme is to gradually build on the skills, fitness and thinking needed in order to complete a timed 5K run at the end of the course, usually at Cambridge Parkrun. There is no obligation to attend the Parkrun at the end, but in our experience, those who have done loved it!
Ely Runners meet, come rain or shine, at the Paradise Sports Centre for 7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 9am on Sundays. Tuesday training consists of hill training, speed work, repetitions and intervals. Thursday training is usually a longer steady run around the City and surrounding countryside, depending on daylight.
Sundays is often a longer run in the countryside If you’re not sure where to start – come and train with us and see what you think.
We meet at Ely’s Paradise Sports Centre at 7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are always up for people coming and joining us for a few sessions free of charge, just to see what they think!
The club has a healthy membership, is active and present at many races and athletic events at various levels, and has a well looked after juniors section.
The beginners’ course starting on the 12th March 2018 will last for ten weeks, meeting at the Paradise Centre on Monday evenings. It costs £20 in total, with this being deducted from full club membership should participants wish to join at a later date.
