Run Saturday

Various locations We vary our Saturday morning runs to cover different aspects. They include;

–  Track sessions; held on the running track at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, the session includes technique work and high intensity sessions to develop efficiency and speed.

–  Interval session; we will take to the Phoenix Trail to focus on interval training. Distance can vary depending on requirements of the individual, but you will run with other club members to develop your speed.

–  Trail run; locations may vary but this is typically held in Wendover Woods. We will take to the trails to experience the best mud and hills we can find. Trail running is an excellent way to build strength, but a reasonable level of fitness will be required.

–  Park Run; a chance to get out and run 5 km against the clock. This is a great way to see how you are improving.

Club Ride Sunday 0830-1130+ Start at Stoke Mandeville Stadium We organise a number of different rides on Sunday mornings for varying needs and abilities. Rides take us out into the beautiful surroundings of the Aylesbury Vale and Chiltern Hills. Rides vary from longer endurance rides to interval and hill repeat sessions and also include club challenges. Ride times and distances will vary. Helmets are essential on all rides as well as lights in the winter. In the interest of safety, rides times may be changed or rides cancelled depending on weather conditions. A reasonable level of fitness is required for club rides.
