Join us for training, a social run or a strength and conditioning session!
Club members are now able to join Tuesday night training by booking a place in one of two groups through Eventbrite here.
From the start of June, when there are 30 or fewer over the 2 groups, we'll meet and create 1 training group. Depending on which group you sign up for, meet at either Whin Park or the Archive Centre car park. We will have a quick Covid safety talk and leave at 6:05 sharp. The training format is decided in advance and typically involves a 3-4km warm-up followed by off-road hill reps and speed work with the occasional road session. Typical training locations include the quarry, canal and the Mast (Craig Dunain).
Please make sure to:
Review the risk assessment (Word document below)
Arrive in training kit
Sanitise and/or wash hands prior to session
Please review the following guidelines before coming along:
Maximum group size of 30. A "field of play bubble" can be created when the activity is taking place, in effect suspending Scottish Government household number guidelines for the duration of the activity.
The "field of play" rules apply from the start of the warm-up to the end of the session.
Risk assessment of our training area in place to ensure that numbers attending are appropriate for maintaining physical distancing and safety measures have been considered.
Respect physical distancing for any members of the public we meet whilst training
Normal physical distancing guidelines apply before and after the sessions (see Scottish Government guidelines).
There will be a Covid Co-ordinator at each session. Their role is to: carry 2 masks, pair of gloves and basic first aid, remind people of safety behaviour, photograph group and record contact details of new runners at the start of each session.
Every third Thursday of the month we hold "Thirdsday," a self-timed, off-road 5k, 60m race at Daviot Woods. It starts and finishes at the junction of the path from Redwood Avenue with the Daviot Woods 5km trail. You may complete the race at whatever time of day suits you on Thursday. If you're on Strava, it will pick up your run in the segment. If not, post your time on the HHR Facebook page or tell Dougie Macdonald.

Strength & Conditioning Circuits On hold
Fridays at 7pm we meet at the Inverness Royal Academy Sport Centre for strength and conditioning circuits. The cost is £5 per week for 4 weeks with the 5th week free.
There is no sign in at reception, just tell them you're in Highland Hill Runners. We meet in the Dance Studio on the first floor.
Please remember a yoga/gym mat and cash.
Social Running On hold
We also organise social runs around the Highlands, winter and summer solstice runs, and full moon runs with the occasional coffee and cafe stop.
