Tuesday Effort Sessions
On Tuesdays, we meet at 7pm, the locations will vary depending on the session, and are available on the website, Tuesday Session, and in that week’s newsletter.
The Tuesday runs are known as Effort Sessions and are designed to increase stamina and speed. The sessions are shorter and involve interval training such as short sprints and/or hills at various locations in and around Witney.
Thursday Group Runs
On Thursdays, we meet at the the West Witney Sports & Social Club, Burford Rd, Witney OX29 0NB, in front of the main building at 6.50pm ready to run at 7pm. There are usually four different routes available usually ranging from 3-10 miles in and around the Witney area. There will always be someone to welcome members and a more established member of the Club to run on the shorter route. On arrival members choose their routes and group together. Afterwards we meet in the bar for a drink and a chat which is a great opportunity to get to know everyone.
During the summer months runs include sections of footpath, bridleway and other off-road traffic free routes. In the winter months, runs follow well lit roads for safety reasons.
During the summer on five Thursdays the Club participates in the Motavation series. These races are relatively short road races of about 4 miles and take place in various locations throughout Oxfordshire. All the local Clubs participate and the events are well supported, attracting in the region of 300 runners at each race.
