If you wish to examine the plan


some points from Wendy's welcome letter.....

......the new nine week programme will begin on . There will be a session every Monday and Wednesday starting at 5.45 pm. We meet at Herringthorpe Stadium. As you enter the stadium you will see our meeting room on the left hand side; the leaders will be in there.

Please ensure that you are wearing enough warm clothing (layers are best), plus something reflective for when we are running on the roads (we won't be doing this straight away as we shall start on the track).

If you have any concerns regarding your health, please consult your GP before running.
At the start of the first session you will be asked to provide a phone contact in case of an emergency.
There will be a nominal charge of £2 per session, as this helps us pay for the use of the track. It would be helpful if you could pay for the two weekly sessions on a Monday, or you can pay for the eighteen sessions up front if you wish........
