Club Sessions

We meet four times a week:

Wednesdays

  • The main club night at the Bracknell Leisure Centre running track from 6:45 pm. The evening starts with 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 organised into groups of approximately equal ability.
  • 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.
  • See what sessions are coming up in our track schedule here:

Sundays

  • Meet at the The Lookout at 9:20 am for a run of about 1 hour through the forest. Different groups are formed on the day, according to running ability.

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 7:30 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 Deena at coaches@bracknell-forest-runners.org.uk or chat to her at the track on a Wednesday - It's a good idea to do this so Deena 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. 

Foundation group. This group aims to complete a 1 hour session at a comfortable pace of 12 minutes per mile plus. This is an ideal progression from the run/walk group and you definitely will not be left behind as we use a loop back system whereby any slightly faster runners in the group will loop back to the rear every so oftern to keep the group together 

The 11 minute mile group. A main group which will do an hour’s run at a pace of no quicker than 11 minutes a mile pace (the run should be about 5 miles long). If you want to join in this group but feel the need for a bit more speed during the session then you may run on ahead and then double back to the rear of the group.

The 10 minute mile group. A main group which will do an hour’s run at a pace of no quicker than 10 minutes a mile pace (the run should be about 6 miles long). If you want to join in this group but feel the need for a bit more speed during the session then you may run on ahead and then double back to the rear of the group.

The 9.5 minute mile group. As above but slightly faster for a consistent sub 1 hour 10k. (Subject to run leader availability.)

The 9.0 minute mile group. This is a popular intermediate group for those improving and also for those who normally run faster but are returning to fitness or from injury.

The 8.5 minute mile group. A group which will do an hour’s run at a pace of no quicker than 8.5 minutes a mile pace (the run should be about 7 miles long). 

The 7.5 minute mile group Our fastest group on a Monday evening

On those Monday’s which are public holidays we will meet at 9:20AM at The Lookout and train in the same format as above; there will not be an evening session on those days.

Fridays

  • At 6:00PM a small group meets usually running at a pace between 8 and 8.5 minutes per mile
  • All these training runs are for about an hour. 
  • In the months of April to September meet at The Lookout; from October to March meet by the all weather pitches at Bracknell Sports Centre. 

Other Sessions

Individiual club members frequently form training runs at other times, or form ad hoc groups for training for forthcoming events and races.
