The next Grand Prix event is the Club 3,000m track race at the Harrier Centre on Wednesday 10 October. This makes next Wednesday’s track session a must do training event. With this in mind, the session will be 5 or 6x600m with 200m recovery. There will be groups running at different speeds designed so that this works for all our runners. This month’s session will be led by Steve Ramek.
It will be held at the Poole Road athletics track in Ewell. Otherwise known as the Harrier Centre or King George V recreation ground, it can be found by turning right into Ruxley Lane off the A 240 and then left into Scotts Farm Road which becomes Poole Road. The recreation ground and athletics track are on your left about half a mile after leaving Ruxley Lane.
Track sessions provide a focussed speed session that works wonders for improving speeds over all distances, so this is targeted at all runners, even if you have never run on a track before.
Please arrive at the track around 7.15pm to complete a gentle warm up (eg two or three times jogging around the track) and be ready to start the more formal warm up promptly at 7.30pm. Bring an extra layer for the warm-up and warm-down and some water if it is hot. The entry is £2.70.
Please be considerate of other track users; other local running clubs will also be training there that evening.
