6pm -Beginners and Slower Pace
We organise weekly runs for beginners meeting at 6:00 at the Ultrasport offices in Audley Avenue. The session last for half an hour to an hour and allows you to walk/jog/run at your own pace. You won’t be left on your own and you’ll find helpful advice and encouragement. There are one or two other runs at this time for those who want to go a bit further.
6.45pm – Intermediate Faster Pace (mainly on road in Newport)
Our 6:45pm group combines a warm up and some structured training enabling runners of different speeds to keep together. In winter, the run is all under street lighting. The group starts from the Ultrasport offices on Audley Avenue.
Our 7:00pm group meets in the car park at Lilleshall Sports Centre and the run provides opportunities for runners to choose different distances and paces. In summer and winter we venture out into the beautiful countryside beyond the town.
There are various Sunday morning training runs in Newport, at the Wrekin or the hills of Church Stretton, as well as Club Special runs on some Sundays through the summer. There are also club social events held through the year.
Club members take part in many local races including the Telford Sexarathon series in the summer; the Shropshire summer and winter fell race series, and various triathlons. Many club members run the London Marathon, or other marathons either in the UK or abroad.
Whatever your running interests, there will be club members who have experience of training and competing and will be willing to pass on their tips and advice.
