All change for Tuesdays (during October) and Thursday as the winter season approaches:
We need you to decide if you want to continue to meet at the Church Room each Tuesday, or, we can go back to what we did last winter, meeting and training in discrete locations in and around Chesham. The choice is yours and we will need to decide by the last Tuesday in October
We will organise some kind of voting system in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled!
Tuesday 19 October - Session 1
Speed endurance with Craig Fulham assisted by Trevor and Mike . Warm up, followed by some hills on the way up to flat circuit intervals. A meeting room has been booked at the Rear Hall at Broadway Baptist Church, 78 The Broadway. Chesham HP5 1EG from 6.45 until 8.45. This will provide a chance to pass on key messages about activities that we expect you will be interested in, and for our new members to ask questions about different aspects of our Club before we start the training session. Toilets will be available and items may be left in the Hall during your run. The closest parking is at Star Yard, Chesham (free after 6pm) and the meeting room can be accessed close to the Car Park Toilet Block. Mike Shrive and Steve Field will be heading up our coaching team.
We will also be trialling a new run start time of 7.15pm and splitting the group only if we decide the number of attendees is unsafe to train as one group. We will allow a maximum of 30 runners per group. Please continue to use the current booking system throughout October.
Please also ensure you are wearing hi viz clothing, and use a torch with care if you need to
