Time: Fridays 6-7.30pm
Cost: £3 per session
Coach: Rob Moore (07855874455)

Held throughout the year, these sessions are considered by many as the best track sessions in the Region. After a group warm-up the athletes split into two or three groups, each with a coach. In summer the sessions are all based on speed-endurance work, while in winter they focus on endurance-speed or strength endurance. Specific track sessions are added throughout the year to focus on specific aspects. Rob’s turbo/run sessions have gained a certain notoriety in reaching the parts that the usual sessions don’t get to!
