Our head coach Simon Grose oversees our training programme at the track, which takes place at the Carn Brea Leisure Centre at Pool near Redruth. Each term lasts 12 to 14 weeks with a week or two off in between.
Each week is different and is designed to make you faster, fitter and a more aerobically efficient runner. Almost nothing else works so quickly, and burns more calories.
Sessions last about an hour and a quarter, including a warm up, and they vary between multiple 100m sprints to longer circuits of 1,600m or 3,000m.Runners train in similarly paced group supported by a qualified coach or leader. At the end of each term runners are speed tested to measure progress (though it’s not compulsory).
All speeds are catered for, though it does help if you can run a couple of miles already. There is a fee of £1 pw for members of Hayle Runners and £2 pw for non members. All you need do is turn up (with a friend, if it helps).
