Wednesday Night Runs

How to Join

We meet on Wednesday evenings.

We have a number of different groups available to suit all abilities. You are free to dip in and out of the groups as necessary, for example if you are recovering from a race or perhaps injury you may need to drop down from your usual group for an easier run.

If it is your first time at the club, and you are unsure which group to run in I would recommend that you start in a group that you could comfortably run in and work your way up.

For more details please speak to me and I will assist you with finding the right group.

Please allow plenty of time for this if it’s your first time.

Beginners Group

This group is put together as and when needed and run by volunteers within the club on a rota basis. The group consists of a leader and backmarker each week – so nobody needs to worry about getting left behind.

If it is your first time coming to Purbeck Runners and you are new to running, please contact the club ahead of time if at all possible so we can plan for someone to run with you.

Social Group

This group is ideal for those wanting a ‘no pressure’ run or perhaps returning from injury. Enjoyment is the main focus here. The group runs at a very steady pace depending on the needs of the group on any particular week.

Intermediate 65

(approx 65min 10k pace) – Training runs at between 10 and 11 mpm. Regrouping and looping back are regularly used and on occasions elements of training are incorporated.

Intermediate 55

(approx 55 min 10k pace) –
Training runs between 9 and 10 mpm. Regrouping/ looping when necessary.

Intermediate 50

Meeting in De Moulham Road (adjacent to the basketball court) for a challenging training session

This will start with a warm-up then the sessions may include intervals, sprints, longer reps, tempo, hills or fartlek.
The sessions will be high intensity & demanding.

This group has an earlier start time, providing an opportunity to double up and join a one of the later group runs.
