The Thursday 30 min run group is flourishing.
Starting at 7pm alongside the other club runs leaving from the club house at the track, it’s aimed at newish or returning runners who want some extra motivation, some company or a stepping stone towards running with other groups on a Wednesday or Thursday. Gill Goodwin has been leading it to get the ball rolling but has had great help and support from Glynis Shepherd, Cameron Cumming, Shirley Dyson Laurie and others.
Obviously runners in this group have to be able to run for 30 mins non stop but it doesn’t matter how fast. The group leader runs back and forth and any faster runners will loop round and join the others from time to time so that everyone stays together.
It's proving terrific for the many people in Winchester who like the idea of running with a club but for whom 45 – 60 mins is a tad daunting at the moment. It’s also be ideal for any parents whose children are doing the junior session on a Thursday.
