COVID-19 Update, 4th January 2021: The latest government lockdown means that we cannot currently operate our ‘groups of 6’ training groups until further notice.
The club meets every Tuesday and Thursday outside Knaresborough Cricket Club, Aspin Lane, and offers a wide range of groups to cater for all abilities.
We currently require all members to book-in to each training session, with groups limited to 6 members or 5 members + coach. Please visit Training Book-in to take part.
Some Tuesdays we have a walk group, catering for those who are building up to Jog or perhaps recovering from injury.
We sometimes have as many as three Jogging groups in the club, catering for all – from the novice runner, up to the seasoned weekend 10k racer and beyond. So if you are new to running or training for a first event this is a great place to come and experience Striders first hand:
- Jog 1 : up to 4½ miles an average pace of 10:15 mins / mile.
- Jog 2 : up to 4 miles at an average pace of 11:45 mins / mile.
- Jog 3 : up to 3½ miles at pace of 13:00+ min miles. [Only during our Zero2Hero courses]
This group is aimed at the regular runner who enjoys a steady run out with a few stops to catch your breath on the way. The usual distance is between 4½ and 5 miles for this group at an average pace of 9:15 mins/mile.
This group is aimed at the faster regular runner. The usual distance run is approximately 10km at an average pace of around 8:15min/mile.
Structured Training Sessions
Taking place on Tuesdays, these sessions are aimed at everyone who is looking to improve. Using a mix of intervals, hills, speed and endurance work the aim is to make you fitter, faster and stronger while still enjoying yourself and adding an occasional bit of healthy competition thrown in for good measure! So if you are chasing that parkrun PB or want to move up from one group to the next, come along on a Tuesday and we will do our best to help.
Zero to Hero
Our Z2H courses have helped take complete non-runners up to a 5km run after 8 weeks of training. The courses, taken by qualified run leaders, take you through every aspect of running so you can comfortably and confidently join our other groups at the end. Further details of our next course will be posted here when available, however if you are interested in joining outside of these times, please contact the club to see how we can help you reach your goals.
