Cross-Country Training

Start Date: 16 Sep 2017 10:00

End Date: 16 Sep 2017 12:00

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
  • Relays

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 (  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.
