TRAINING

We offer varied training sessions geared to helping members become better all-round runners.

From longer runs, sprint training, intervals or hill sessions, there’s something to suit everyone no matter your ability. 

Our friendly coaches adopt a ‘no pressure’ approach to training which allows you to take things at your own pace suitable to your own needs and current fitness levels. 

Our sessions are also a great social opportunity to chat with other runners and make new friends!

We are pleased to be able to offer a varied training plan over summer including track sessions at Cockermouth School, on road sessions in and around Cockermouth and off road sessions at various locations in the Western Lake District. 

See our training plan above for more details. 

SESSIONS

A typical training session lasts around 60-70 minutes, which normally includes a warm up and cool down stretching afterwards. 

FACILITIES

There are currently no facilities available to us during the sessions. 

Parking is available at Cockermouth School or a nearby parking area is listed for the trail run.

WINTER

In winter high visibility clothing such as a reflective top is necessary, and due to our rural nature many winter routes will also require a head torch.  Off road shoes are advised for some training sessions, and this will be made clear via our Facebook feed and on the members’ training plan.
