HHRC Training for 2024

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

On Monday we have a social run of around 3 to 6 miles, depending on how far you want to run then on a Thursday we have a structured training session which is suitable for all abilities.  We meet at 6:30pm both days. 

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. 

Long runs at the weekend are put ad Hoch on the group WhatsApp by members looking for company, these can be anything from a local 10 mile run on trails to big 30-mile Ultra training runs in the Lake District or the Highlands, contact the Coach for further details.
