Club Sessions

The Club has 3 sessions per week

Wednesdays

  • The main club night at the Bracknell Leisure Centre running track from 6:45 pm. The evening starts with announcements, then a warm up and the main session starts at 7 pm and lasts about 45 minutes depending on the set 
  • Training takes the form of track sessions with runners of all abilities training together.
  • There is also an alternative to the track session with a Wednesday night road run to be organised to run around the 10mm or 11mm pace subject to a run leader being available to take the group out.
  • A charge of £1 per person is made on a Wednesday to contribute towards the hire of the track and car park - this £1 is payable if you are taking part in the track session or the road run
  • Potential new members can have up to 3 free Wednesday evenings to get a feel for what we do prior to committing to join the club.

Mondays

  • On Mondays we meet at the Bracknell Leisure Centre running track from 6:35pm to start at 6:45.
  • This is a great opportunity to meet other runners and to run with different paced groups. We will break into 6 to 8 groups, starting from Under 8 minute mile up to a run walk group. Groups are as follows:

Beginners Run/Walk group. Aiming to complete approximately a 1 hour session, at a beginners pace, suiting whoever is running. If you would be interested in joining in with this group please contact coaches@bracknell-forest-runners.org.uk or chat to them at the track on a Wednesday - It's a good idea to do this so they can let you know who to look out for when you arrive as our run leaders change weekly.The Run/Walk group is structured to allow beginners to slowly build up their running distance - for example 1 minute run 1 minute walk, 2 minute run 1 minute walk and so on. 

For the following pace groups - If you want to join a group but feel the need for a bit more speed during the session then please run on ahead and then double back to the rear of the group. All the following groups run for 1 hour
