WHAT DO WE DO?
We meet every Tuesday night throughout the year at the Hungerford Rugby club on the Triangle Field (click here for map or download map as PDF) at 7.30pm for a range of training activity that aim to cater for all running abilities. These might include intervals, hill sessions, and longer runs in and around Hungerford.
In the summer we also go out on 'Away Runs', mostly cross country, that often start and finish at a local pub.
Find out more in the 'Training' section above.
A Tuesday training session on Hungerford Marsh
- Simon Hodkin organises a Thursday 'Tempo' run that aims to stretch runners in maintaining a good pace over a timed distance. He and Thomas Rivers have recently also added a monthly 'Timed 5k' to this session, offering runners the chance to claim prizes for the most improved performances.
- Esther Good and Andy Davy offer 'Sunday Service' runs that take runners out to explore our wonderful countryside, often for longer distances than on our Tuesday sessions - perhaps 7 to 10 miles, depending on the day and the group's needs. Details are usually publicised to members via our Outlook email.

We take part in a range of local and national events. See Recent Results under 'Latest News' above.
We also regularly support Park Runs:

Er... and we have other, occasionally different sessions!

We have a small committee that meets regularly throughout the year to plan training programmes and think of ways to improve the club. We try to respond to ideas from our members, and are always ready to welcome new blood to help us in a range of ways.
We now have 7 trained 'Leaders in Running Fitness'. They are all trained to help keep our sessions focused and well-informed, based on current information from Run England and UK Athletics.
