Join us for training, a social run or a strength and conditioning session!
Tuesday Evenings On hold
JANUARY 2021 Update: All training is now on hold as per most recent government guidance.
On Tuesday evenings, we meet by the bike shed at the Archive Centre car park and begin 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 remember a head torch.
Please make sure to:
Review the risk assessment (Word document below)
Arrive in training kit
Provide Dougie or Fraser with up-to-date contact details (phone and email address)
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.
