Each Wednesday evening Sudbury Joggers offers a few different types of runs to its members. No matter how fast or slow you are, no matter if you’re just beginning to run or an experienced runner; there will be a run for you.
At 6:30pm every Wednesday the Sudbury Joggers run through Sudbury for approximately 20 minutes.
This session is designed for those who are new to running and a great way to try out a new running pace. It is also a wonderful session for anyone wanting to join us for the first time to get to know us.
No matter how slow you might be, there will always be an experienced runner that will be a tail runner, so you won’t get lost, you won’t be alone.
Standard 4, 5 and 7 Mile Runs
Apart from the first Wednesday of every month, there will be a 4 mile, a 5 mile and a 7 mile run.
Routes will vary from week to week, and you’ll be told the route you’re going in the briefing that starts at 7pm.
Each of the runs are available for any member to run that distance within (approximately) an hour.
Other Weekly Run Sessions
Each week of the month there is a different session that is available.
25 Minutes Out and Back
On the first Wednesday of the month, the only session available is to run for 25 minutes and then turn back and return the way you came.
This session is meant to help you keep a steady pace as you need to try and return the in the same amount of time it took you to run the first 25 minutes.
On the second Wednesday of the month, we head up by the health centre, where we use the lampposts as markers for various different speed workouts, all at individual paces.
On the third Wednesday of the month, you can tackle some hills! No one ever likes running hills but it is great practice for running races as there are very few that are ever flat!
We usually run these on Ingrams Well Road; we use lamposts as markers to run up and down the hill at your own indivudual pace, at various speeds.
On the fourth Wednesday of the month, why not make like an Egyptian and do the pryramid?
The Pyramid sessions are where you run for 1 minute, rest 1 minute, run back 1 minute and rest again, then you would run for 2 minutes, rest 2 minute, run 2 minutes rest, then you run 3 minutes, rest 3 minutes, run 3 minutes, rest, then you would do the 2 minute one again, then the 1 minute one.
7 Mile Interval
On the few months where there is a fifth Wednesday of the month, you can join the 7 Mile Interval.
This session is where we would have a set route, but on that route you would vary the pace of the run for various lenghts of time.
Speed, hills, pyramid and interval sessions include a warm up and cool down run of approx 1 mile.
Anybody is welcome to do the sessions, they are not just for the “speedy” ones amoungst us.
Whatever your goals, whatever your pace, you will be fully supported and encouraged by everyone at Sudbury Joggers. Blue and yellow friends are forever!
