Club Runs

The club generally organises runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, but please be sure to refer to the club calendar for the most up to date information.

Non members are more than welcome to join our cub runs, but are asked to pay £1 for attending the Thursday run as it is a coached session.

Runners are expected to run responsibly, adhering to the highway code and respecting other road, path and pavement users. You are representing the club!

When running in darkness please wear high-vis and a head torch.

Runs are always led by a run leader who is responsible for the safety of the group. As part of this, all runners are expected to adhere to the following basic safety brief.

  • Always run into traffic
  • Faster runners who get ahead of the back are welcome to go on ahead, but should loop back at regular intervals. This is a club group run and we should remain as one
  • Always cross roads considerately and as a group
  • Always be aware and considerate of priorities on roads, crossings and cycle lanes
  • Be aware and considerate of other path users
  • Remember you are representing your club – be polite and courteous!

Tuesdays

Tuesday nights are generally a social run as a group, with “turnround points” for the lead runners to return to the back. This ensures everyone can run at their own pace whilst leaving no one behind. Everyone is welcome!

Runs depart at 6pm from various locations in Yeovil. Stay tuned to the club calendar where the meeting point will always be published.

Thursdays

Thursday is speedwork day, usually consisting of a set of intervals, a time trial or the “whistle test”. Great for improving your speed.

Runs depart at 6pm from various locations in Yeovil. Stay tuned to the club calendar where the meeting point will always be published.

*This is a coached session. If you are not a member, your first session on a Thursday is free, but subsequent sessions cost £1 a week. Thursday sessions are free for all members.

Sundays

Sunday is our long run day with distances ranging from 10-20 miles depending on who is there, with the routes often “looping back” so people can return to the start at their own distances.

Runs depart at 9am, usually from outside Frankie and Bennies/Cineworld but we sometimes organise “away days”, so stay tuned to the club calendar where the meeting point will always be published.
