Please Note: All sessions to include warm-up (12-16 minutes) & cool-down (8-12 minutes) // Additional easy/steady running (30 to 90 minutes) on all other (non-session) days // Reduced overall weekly volume during ‘time-trial’ weeks.

Beacon Hill Striders training sessions are normally open for non group members to attend as ‘guests’ (no training fees involved) … Unfortunately, due to current Covid restrictions we are unable to accommodate ‘guest’ runners.

Our run sessions are generally only suitable for sub 18 minute 5K male (or sub 20 minute 5K female) runners.
