Notes about training

Harry Manuel: One of our most experienced coaches

  • The advertised times are when we aim to set off. Runners typically arrive at the venue anything up to 15 minutes before this time, in order to socialise, find out more about the sessions which are taking place, listen to announcements, check the club noticeboard, and so on;
  • Members taking part in a training session prior to competing in a race (mid-week or weekend) should seek the advice of the coach conducting the session in order to identify the most appropriate training level;
  • Please appreciate our coaches – without them, we wouldn’t have any training sessions!
  • All training sessions start from the Abbey Road Sports Field, Abbey Road, Darlington.

Please be aware that your effort in each session depends on your current training aims, level of fitness and your need to taper/recover. The coaches will be able to advise you on how many reps you should be aiming to complete. We also would like to encourage runners of all levels to take part in the sessions, including new runners.
