The club organises a number of training events throughout the year for members, details below.

We welcome anyone over 11 years of age to our club training sessions, details of which are below and in our monthly newsletter, but advise that anyone under 16 years of age must be accompanied at the training session by a parent or guardian.

Tuesday and Thursday evening Sessions (Club Training) – 1830 hours 

The sessions currently meet each evening at Gordon Park, near the tennis courts.  Both sessions are one hour in duration (approximately) and we run through a cycle of different training programmes over the weeks.  Sessions are open to runners of all abilities, and everyone is made welcome. 

Depending on coach availability and attendance, we aim to split sessions into the following groups: 

Tuesdays – usually intervals, Main Group and Confidence & Recovery Group 

Thursdays – usually a social run.  Approximately 6-8km, 10km and 13km distances


Additional Sessions – Thursday lunchtime 

We also currently have additional training sessions as follows: 

Thursday lunchtimes at 1200 hours, a 60 minute session meeting at the Car Park on the south side of the Waterside bridge (closest side to Newburgh) as you leave Newburgh towards Cruden Bay.   

The group are happy to welcome anyone along even if they need to leave earlier due to work or personal commitments.  This group is growing by the week and has a wide variety of abilities, all willing to support one another.
