Although these are Derwent sessions, they are open to all, regardless of club affiliation. An excellent opportunity to improve core strength and flexibility. No booking required. Beginners welcome.
CLUB NIGHT – 7pm RUGBY CLUB
Derwent Runners meet at Derby Rugby club every Tuesday night at 7pm for a 7.15pm start. The run usually lasts about 50 minutes. Currently we have 4 different groups (all groups muster so don’t be put off by the pace, this is just a average guide).
4 MILE GROUP – A easy paced group for beginners, those coming back from injury or those that just want to take it easy! (Average 10/11 min mile).
6 MILE STEADY GROUP – Our steady paced group (Average 9/10 min mile).
6 MILE (8 MIN MILE PACE) – Middle 6 mile group (Average 8/8.5 min miles)
6 MILE GROUP (FAST) – For the faster runners or those looking to improve their speed (Minimum 7.5 min miles).
All 6 mile groups do the same route to allow runners to drop back if required. The 4 mile route always starts with the 6 milers & simply cuts back earlier. Mustering at designated places keeps all the runners together, leaving nobody behind while allowing those wanting to go faster to keep moving).
COACHED INTERVAL SESSIONS – MOORWAYS (£6.00)
We have teamed up with Derby Tri Club offering coached sessions every Wednesday night from 6.45pm. No booking required just turn up. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
HILL NIGHT – 7pm RUGBY CLUB
In order to vary our training, Thursday is Hills Night. Speed, hill and stamina training takes place using our local Darley and Allestree parks as often as the weather will allow!
No speed requirements here as everyone sticks together and you only compete against yourself.
LONG RUN – MORNING (TIMES VARY)
IMPORTANT – THIS IS NOT A CLUB RUN AS SUCH AND IS NOT ‘LED”. However, there is often a longer run organised on a Sunday morning depending on who is training for what (approx 8-12 miles – although in marathon build up there is usually a longer one as well). Meeting points can vary and can sometimes be out in the countryside but often start from the Rugby Club. If you fancy running on a Sunday, speak to a member of the Committee on the preceding Tuesday or put a shoutout on the Club’s Facebook page to see if anyone fancies joining you.
