The Week Ahead 6 March 2017

Coach Kevin takes over on Tuesday with a new session on the Beachley Track called the Joker in the Pack Relay. It's based on 100 and 300 metre bursts, but with a 400 metre twist in the tail.

Go straight to Beachley for 6.50 and be prepared to listen carefully to Kev's instructions. Our new Disciplinary Panel are eager to start on their second case!

We've got extra lighting this week to save people wearing head torches which tend to dazzle other runners in a relay. Some runners prefer to use trail shoes especially when the track is wet.

Thursday's run is the Hayesgate/Mathern route.

And as usual as a Thursday alternative  there'll be the regular Beachley Track session. This week we're doing 3 sets of 400/400/200 metres.

And finally - the cross country season ends on Sunday with the final GLCL race over Piercefield Park. Al and Tom will be looking for help in setting up and clearing up the course.

However you contribute - make sure you run. The race starts at 11.
