We have a varied training schedule devised by our coaching team, with sessions most nights of the week. See the sidebar on the right for a quick summary of what’s coming up, click here to see the full training calendar or continue reading for more details …
Monday Track Training
Track work is lots of things – hard, enjoyable, sociable, rewarding – and measurable. You will record your times from each session, you will see them improve and you will build on the number of repetitions.
Track work is NOT just for fast and/or experienced runners. All levels of experience and ability are welcome and the sessions will be tailored accordingly. Have a look at our track summary.
Track sessions take place every Monday at 7.30pm with coaches from Hart Road Runners and Farnham Triathlon Club, Aldershot Military Stadium, Queens Rd. Cost: £3/runner
See the training and events calendar for further details.
Tuesday Night Training
Tuesday sessions are designed to improve members speed and hill endurance.
Most Tuesday training sessions start at 7:30pm from the Hart Leisure Centre (where there is ample parking and also changing facilities). Make sure you see the club calendar for specific information, especially during summer months where runs may start from elsewhere.

Bridge Club (Wednesday Evening & Saturday Morning)
A friendly, supportive group aimed at those who can run at least 2.5 miles (speed doesn’t matter) and who would like to build up their distance. Particularly suited to those who are not yet confident about joining the main club nights or who are coming back from injury or illness.
Distances run on Saturdays vary from 2.5 to 8 miles and are decided on the day, with the group sometimes splitting into smaller groups to allow for everyone’s needs. You will not feel under pressure to do more than you wish, but you will be encouraged to improve when you are ready.
This group is also suitable for more established runners who would like a relaxed social run at a moderate pace, mainly on the canal towpath and nearby footpaths.
The sessions start as follows:
6.05pm and 6.30pm at the canal bridge by the Barley Mow in the summer months.
6.05pm near Elvetham Heath community centre in the winter months.
9.00am and 9.30am at the canal bridge by the Barley Mow.
9.00am Last Saturday of the month at Bourley car park.
