5k on Thursday

26 February 2019 - By David Jobling

5k on Thursday around our long standing winter Freebournes Rd/Colchester Road/The Grove course.

An opportunity for members to have a good shorter distance run out on the road and gauge where they are currently ahead of shorter distance events coming up; for example 5k Road Relays, Braintree 5M, WRC Track 5k and Little Bromley 10k – all included in WRC 2019 Club Championship, details available on WRC website along with our Thursday schedule for the next weeks which includes a shorter speed focus.

Meet please at Witham Leisure Centre 1930 and we’ll head off by 1945 latest.

For any headed directly to the start area, we’ll aim to meet at the junction of Perry Rd/Freebournes Rd around 1955 where we’ll organise some dynamic stretches, drills and strides then we’ll just need to make sure we’ve got all names down for timing and get you started en masse a little after 2000.

Temperatures still look like being above average for this time of year but still a good idea for those layers/drinks for before/after and there’ll be somewhere for you to leave these.

Many thanks to everyone who’s been in touch to let us know you can help out, we wouldn’t be able to put on these treats without you so many thanks again from all athletes and coaches.

Scott and I look forward to meeting up with everyone Thursday. DJ
