We have 2 routes into the group:
For people new to running:
Join one of our beginners courses, these last 9 weeks and we coach you on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6pm. It is a very gentle course and we have more qualified Run Leaders than any other local organisation and we specialise in beginner runners. You get a quality framed certificate and we bake treats for you as a reward.
After the 9 week course we then integrate you in to the intermediate group (6:30pm) working closely with you to continue your journey. Because we only do 3 beginners courses each year we have a lot of time to work with you after your course is finished to build on your initial fitness. Anyone who runs with the group is welcome to come back on the next beginners course for free if you feel it is appropriate to do so.
The next beginners course will start on January 27, 2015 and it will cost £40. This fee includes membership until 2016 so you have nothing else to pay. You do have 2 optional upgrades which would be appropriate if feel you want to start racing, a UK Athletics race license which is £10 and a racing vest which is £18.
So the absolute maximum you would pay for the year is £68, and the minimum is £40. Regardless you will all get the same high quality training.
For existing runners:
Just come down any Tuesday or Thursday at 6:30pm and try our intermediate group or one of our more advanced groups. We have groups of various abilities from race pace of sub 6 minute miles to 14 minute mile runners so what ever your ability we have a group for you. You can try us for free for a few sessions to see if we are the group for you. We do not use the track but we train around the lakeside area and we run out to Cantley/ Bessacarr / Intake / Town Moor / Potteric Carr / Wadworth etc…
If you enjoy running with the group then you can obtain road runner membership for £30. You do have 2 optional upgrades which would be appropriate if feel you want to start racing, a UK Athletics race license which is £10 and a racing vest which is £18.
So the absolute maximum you would pay for the year is £58, and the minimum is £30. Regardless you will all get the same high quality training.
We are part of Doncaster Athletic Club and if appropriate we will feed athletes through the groups to the coaches so you get the best possible coaching.
