Club Runs

Please read our latest Covid 19 update.

There are two runs each Thursday: one of 3-4 miles and one of 5-6.

The first Thursday of each month is 'The Loop' - a simple 4.2 mile route around the streets of Hove. The idea behind this is for runners of all abilities to judge how they are improving. There are opportunities to cut off at an earlier point if you do not want to do the whole route.

In the summer The Loop follows the same format but includes some off-road terrain.

During the summer months our Thursday long runs may start from a different location to enable us to take advantage of the beautiful Sussex countryside.

Other Thursdays will include a training session led by our Leaders in Running Fitness (LiRFS) or Coaches in place of the usual run.
