SUMMER TRAINING Starts Tue 2nd April 2024 at 18:45, left side of Savill Gardens Car Park (see below for details)

There are usually several groups running and most runners find a group to suit their pace. There are always club members who are willing to run with new members until they find their feet.

In addition, there is an option to take part in structured interval training on Tuesday sessions, run by club coaches.  These are suitable for all runners, and can really help improve your speed.   The Thursday meetings generally offer small groups running at various paces, with a recommended route nominated by the club captain normally covering all abilities.

Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 am 

These sessions are always run informally and tend to be more social runs, these can also great group sessions for those training for longer races, so when you are having to put in the miles for marathon training its great to run with others and share the experience. These are normally co-ordinated via our members Facebook group (paid members only), and could be subject to cancellation on race days.

As these are in the morning we meet at Savill Gardens, all year round and run in Windsor Great Park, relaxing in the café afterwards for refreshment and a chat.

Many members also parkrun on Saturdays, with our “home” parkrun as Bedfont Lakes, but we do tour to others in the local (and not so local area) with the challenge of finding a good breakfast afterwards.
