Training schedule - Spring


***** Coronavirus latest update - see 'Latest News' on club homepage re KWL, training etc  *****

Below is the Wednesday evening schedule for the four senior groups beginning at 6.45. In the summer months (after Easter holiday break) we train on the Helm just East of Oxenholme station outside Kendal. In the winter we meet in Kendal behind the Kendal Leisure centre. Whilst most sessions follow a similar patterns of intervals, and runners do swap groups depending on the session, the colours indicate approximate 10k times to give new members a guide where the may 'fit'. Please note at all winter sessions runners should wear high viz, carry a head torch, and be wearing the appropriate footwear (fell/road)

Now at the Leisure centre winter venue for Wednesday training and Queen Katherine school for the Monday track session.

Wednesday nights

This is the main club night in the sense that we meet at the same place.

All the sessions for the groups both junior and senior last about an hour. Currently we have 9 junior groups, and 4 senior groups: Green Blue, Red and Black.

The senior groups follow a similar pattern for Wednesdays.  Groups normally have a warm up run of 1-2 miles,  some interval work, and a 1-2 mile warm down

Further junior info on joining/competing/coaching/waiting list can be found on the documents pane at the foot of the homepage.

Monday nights

At 6.45 there is a sociable steady run (no one will be left behind!) that starts from the Leisure Centre.  This group does a variety of different routes, which in winter alternate between off-road (suitable footwear and a headtorch are required) and road. In summer all routes are off road.   Usually the run lasts an hour and for about 6 miles in distance.

Finally there is a track session at Kirkbie Kendal school in summer and Queen Katherine School in winter.  This is a fairly intense session for seniors and older/competing juniors consisting of a whole variety of intervals of between 100m-1500m.

Racing and Recces

For many members two nights training is not enough and we are often found on the fells at the weekends and other days and nights during the week. Information on what's coming up can usually be found on our Facebook page.

Should you wish to join us, come along to one of the training sessions and  try it out, although juniors should initially contact the junior coordinator via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
