HHRC Training for 2022

We normally hold three running specific training sessions per week and then a strength for running session. 

Tuesday training has two groups:  A social group, ideal for people new to off road runnning/those looking for a recovery run or a easier run.  The other is a threshold group, run at a quicker pace than the social run group and ideal for those in training for a big event. 

On a Thursday we have a structured training session which is suitable for all abilities.  We meet at 6:30pm both days. 

At weekends we have a group long steady runs usually about 10 miles but sometimes more, often located at Mabie Forest or Ae Forest.

The strength for running training session is done in association with Q-Fitness in Dumfries on a Wednesday night at 6pm.  The session is a specialized session working on the key muscle groups involved in running to aid not only running performance but injury prevention.  This is led by one of the Q-Fitness qualified strength coaches. There is a £5 per session cost to this, all other training sessions are free to all.
