Training Nights

Group training nights are Wednesday nights. With many of the club organising a longer run on the weekends and members are fully involved with the Parkrun community, with Sandwell Valley, Walsall Arboretum and Perry Hall Park being the popular choices.

Wednesday nights are currently starting from Dartmouth Central Club, Devonshire Drive, West Bromwich, B71 4AA

We have scrapped our weekly training fee – so week nights are free!

Our current location is Dartmouth Central Club, with the bonus of having a bar for that post session beer. However, no changing rooms so stick a warm layer in the car.

Training night follow the following format:

Warm up – group run between 1 mile and 1.5 mile to the location of the main session.

Main session – the focus on Wednesday nights is speed work – this type of training will help you achieve your running goals by boosting your Cardio fitness levels. Sessions are tailored to your ability.

Cool down –  group jog back to the club house.
