Distance Runs

A training schedule, showing which routes will be used, will be posted on here ( see below) and shared  in advance.

When possible, a LiRF ( Leader in Running Fitness) will be allocated for each of the following pace groups, and as a minimum we shall aim to have at least three LiRFs/supporters (experienced runners who know the routes etc.)

Distance Run Meeting Point: Outside Newmarket Leisure Centre (beside the LC building at the swimming pool end). 6:20pm for a 6:30pm start.

Track Sessions on the Academy Field

Track Meeting Point: On the Academy field (access via the gate on the lane adjacent to Houldsworth Valley School, parking is possible on Rowley Drive). 6:20pm for 6:30pm start.

Sessions will be coached by various NJ members.

It is only safe and good practice to NOT run on a training night if you are returning from injury, sickness or have COVID-19 symptoms or been told to self isolate. Building fitness and condition should be taken at a steady pace, and the training nights may not always offer the best format/environment by which to do so. Please contact either of the Club Captains for advice on how best to do this.

The following training plans show all options available on any given training night. You are free to choose whatever option suits your training plan or quite simply, how you may feel on a given night! We try and offer something for everyone- however if you feel there is something missing, please let us know.

Winter Routes

New members

We welcome people to come along to a training session before joining the Club. We have several pace groups on a training night but they are not suitable for complete beginners. We run a great beginners’ course every January to help people start on their running journey, or we can offer advice on how to get started, so hopefully in time you may be able to join us.
If you consider you are not a beginner, please complete the online form on the home page of this website, indicating  how best sums up your running ability before attending a session. We will then be in touch to advise which session and what group might be the best one to try. We kindly ask that you do not turn up without completing this and having a conversation with us first.

During the winter runs and darker evenings ALL runners must wear Hi-Vis vests or jackets.
