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.
Wednesdays: Ladies Social Runs
This is an informal, mixed ability group aiming to encourage and support women’s running in a comfortable and social setting. Their activities and further information are on their Facebook page or contact email@example.com Meet in the stone shelter behind the cenotaph every Wednesday for a 6.30 start. 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!!).
Training & Events Calendar

The sessions have been planned by Club member Dave Troman of Love To Run Coaching and work on the principle of periodisation. To understand how the training sessions in the current block fit into the greater scheme of the season, have a read of the overview and training philosophy HERE.
All members are reminded that they are responsible for their own safety at these sessions –please dress suitably and wear appropriate shoes when we’re offroad, and carry necessary extra stuff (jacket, hat, gloves, etc.) when we’re up on the hill. For any sessions based on the roads round town now we ALL need to wear hi viz please.
