Joining Tadley Runners

The club meets twice a week at 7.00pm on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Hurst Leisure Centre which provides changing and social facilities.

 

Before joining you can take part in a few training sessions and decide if you would like to join the club.

 

Will I fit in at Tadley Runners?

With about 50 members, we normally see about 20 runners turn up on Mondays and Wednesdays. Some of these runners shoot off on their routes at about 7 minute mile pace, but the majority of us run at 8-10 minutes per mile pace for the 5 mile Monday run, and the 8 mile Wednesday run.

 

The sessions are informal, with the routes often decided just before we set off. In summer we tend to run off road on trails through the fields and woods, whilst in winter we sometimes break up the Tadley road runs with head-torch runs along the more quiet country lanes.

 

*** Obviously safety is paramount, so even on the lit Tadley roads we wear hi-visibility vests as well as lights in winter. ***

 

Most, if not all, members run just to get/keep fit and anyone who can run 4 miles in about 45 minutes or less will fit in straight away. If you’re not up to that yet you might find the sessions a bit hard, but you’re still most welcome to come along and try us. We all had to start somewhere!
