What are timed runs?

Timed Runs  give members the chance to monitor their progress over the autumn/winter season by running the same route throughout the series.  There are normally two distances available; 2 and 3 miles and the same course is used throughout the series   The idea is that participants try and run “at pace” – and having completed their first timed run,  then aim to improve their times over the course of the whole series. 

 A mass warm-up takes place first.  Participants then leave the building in waves (so that manageable numbers of runners & walkers set off at any given time).  Waves depart at 1 minute intervals.  Finishing times are shouted out at the end and participants then record their times on the registration form.  Adjustments are made by the organisers and final results posted on facebook and the website.  Stretching takes place afterwards.  There are end of year prizes for anyone who completes all events in the series and for those who make the biggest improvement across all runs/walks.
 
This is the only session without “shepherding” but no-one is left behind – organisers know who is out on the course and a sweeper will ensure all participants safely return.  Don’t be put off by the fact that this is “timed” the emphasis is on individual achievement – not comparisons to others.  It is a great session - come and try it out.
