      Structured Training Session - The Train

      Choo…Choo…all aboard the train! 7:30pm briefing at the leisure centre and we will be running at Gershwin. Please come along to the briefing before hand if you can – it is hard to model the technique and strategy at the location. Thanks all.

      You will be matched up with runners of a similar speed and be running in a group, all running along in single file. The aim is to run at your 5k pace for most of the run. The back runner will then run faster to the front of the team, then slow down to the 5k pace again, then the next back runner will go fast to the front then rejoin the pace again. You keep going for the length of 800m, then have a 200m walking recovery. Repeat as many times as you can fit in 30 mins! This is a great team session which is fun and challenging. We hope we will see lots of you there!

      If you are racing the 5K on Friday, then this session is not suitable for you,  unless you are happy to drop down a couple of pace groups and take it as an easy run out.

      See you there.

      Saturday Cycling

      The suggestion for this week is the ever-popular Farm Shop Cafe (or whatever it is they are calling themselves this week…) at Greenstead Green, where we are expected from around 10:45. Weather looking a bit iffy but we might get home dry.

      If you plan on riding from Morrison’s, please arrive by 9am ready for a 9:05am departure and ensure you and your bike are ready.

      I’ll suggest the Pebmarsh route, so out via Rivenhall, Silver End, Perry Green, Stisted, Greenstead Green, turn left amd down the hill to  Earls Colne and continue on to White Colne. Turn left up to Pebmarsh. At the “T” junction turn left then through Pebmarsh and right at the top of the short climb. At the end turn left for the dragstrip to Halstead (please take care along the main road). As you arrive in Halstead, turn left into Colne Road, left at the mini roundabout and then back up to Greenstead Green.

      I have a GPX file of the route available, ask me if you would like me to send this over. I will post this on the WhatsApp group.

      I’m not aware of any Tri’s this weekend, but of you are doing an event, please let me know for the website report.

      I won’t be out at Morrison’s but hope to get out to GG for tea and cake.

Welcome to Witham Running Club

We are a friendly bunch with more than 200 members and our club meets at Witham Football Club on Spa Road, Witham.

We provide a good mix of training programmes, a great social environment, but most of all we give respect, support, encouragement and equality to our fellow athletes regardless of how quickly or slowly they choose to run.

Our website is full of information, but the best way to find out about our club is to come and give us a no commitment try.
