Training nights

The club meets every Tuesday and Thursday at the Knaresborough Cricket club (see map) and offers a wide range of groups to cater for all abilities. An overview of the groups we usually run, all led by run leaders, is below:










Walking Group

Many Tuesdays we have a walk group, catering for those who are building up to Jog or perhaps recovering from injury.

Jog Groups
We now 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 3 : up to 4 miles at pace of 13:00+ min miles.
  • Jog 2 : up to 4.5 miles at pace of between 10:30 and 13:00 min miles.
  • Jog 1 : up to 4.5 miles at pace of between 9:30 and 11:00 min miles.

Intermediate Group
This group is aimed at the regular runner who enjoys a good run out with a few stops to catch your breath on the way. The usual sessions for this group would entail a longer (steady paced) run of a round 5 miles at a pace of between 8:30 and 10:00 minute miles on a Tuesday, with a more relaxed shorter 4 mile run on a Thursday.

Run Group
This group is aimed at the regular runner who runs at a pace of 09:00 minute miles or faster. The group goes out on a Thursday evening for a run of approximately 10km at a pace no slower than 8:30min/mi.

Structured Training Session

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.  Our next course is scheduled for January 2020 – further details 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.
