Venue: Richmond Park
Following last year's increased interest in cross-country, we are looking to build on this further this coming autumn. In support of this, Kevin Best who has a wealth of experience running cross-country, is organising four Saturday morning training sessions in September:
- Saturday 9th September
- Saturday 16th September
- Saturday 23rd September
- Saturday 30th September
These are aimed at everyone, including those completely new to cross-country and those who have run many cross-country races before, and open to all abilities.
The sessions will include:
- A warm up and post run stretch
- Discussions on clothing
- Advice on footwear (trail shoes, studs, spikes etc)
- Tips on how to deal with running up and down hills
- How to deal with different conditions under foot
- Hill work
We will meet in Richmond Park at Pembroke Lodge carpark at 10am.
The sessions will be up to 2 hours, and there will be an opportunity for the all-important coffee and cake afterwards ! Kev has asked you to bring warm and wet weather gear to these sessions. There will be a short break mid-session so feel free to bring any refreshments to keep your energy levels up.
Any questions about the sessions, do get in touch with Kevin (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you would like advice now on footwear for cross-country, do drop Kevin an email or chat to him at Thursday (Hawker Centre) or Sunday (Bushy Park) training.
