Our coaches Scott Abraham and Charlotte Bennett oversee our training programme at the track and are supported by Coaches and Leaders from the club. The track sessions are held at the Carn Brea Leisure Centre at Pool near Redruth on Thursday at 7pm. Each term lasts 6 to 10 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 can be 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. Currently we have funding to make it free for the under 20’s.All you need do is turn up (with a friend, if it helps).You walk through Carn Brea reception and tell them you are going to the track. When you get to the track we are normally in the top right hand corner near the portacabin.
