Regular Training Schedule
Mondays: Winter Core Classes with Will
This Core Stability Training is run by PT Will Houghton and the cost is £3.50/session. It concentrates on developing core strength and general conditioning for running. Held in the Crosthwaite Parish Rooms (near the Co-op in Keswick), meeting at 6 for a 6.15 start, these are run in the winter only. The session lasts about 45 minutes, finishing at 7pm. Please check our Facebook Keswick AC Facebook Page Events for details. Bring your own Yoga Mat or similar.
Tuesdays & Thursdays: Main club-training sessions
These are the two main weekly club training sessions and cover a variety of road, off-road and hill workouts. Sessions endeavour to cater for all levels of ability. There is always a set session (see schedule below), though this may vary in severe weather, and small groups are welcome to offer a separate activity if they wish. High-vis clothing and head-torch are essential in winter. We meet at the Fitz Park pavilion at 6 for a prompt 6.15 start.
Please see schedule below for further details on club sessions – plus Upcoming Social Running events.

The session lasts about an hour and can be on trail or road. Minimum ability we suggest you are able run 5km in about 30mins, and can run up to 10k (though we stop – a lot!!).
