We meet every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday and details of the various venues can be found within the 'where we meet' section. Our Saturday venue remains the same throughout the year but the Wednesday venue changes every 6 weeks or so to allow us to provide different routes both on and off road.
Our Monday, Tuesday and Thursday night meets are training sessions organised by the club coaches. Monday and Thursday are usually at the Prince of Wales Track whilst Tuesday is hill reps. Further details are available from the links to the left of this description. Please email the club at email@example.com if you have any questions.
We provide several groups of differing speeds and distances on a Wednesday night, varying from 11 minute miling (4 miles in distance) to 7 minute miling (5-7 miles in distance).
Thursday morning is an opportunity for a social run in one group, with regular regroups to make sure that despite varying paces, the group stays together as much as possible. We start at the Norwood Arms at 9:30am and vary the 5 mile route every few weeks.
On Saturday mornings we have a medium-sized group on Cleeve Hill, starting from Cleeve Hill Golf Club car park at 9am. The off road route varies in length from 7 or 8 miles to an extended 11 or 12 if required.
The weather was relatively mild for this year's Dursley Dozen, but the lack of sun meant that ground conditions were hard with some very slippery sections, particularly on the downhill sections for the 13 Almost Athletes who took part.
The last cross country race of the season saw wintry weather for competitors. In addition to a strong turnout for the men, Becky Stephens was the sole lady representative from the club and ran well in spite of the challenging conditions finishing in 57th place.
