New Running Club Growing Every Week

Posted on 21/05/11

On Tuesday 3rd of May Team Manvers Triathlon Club, a member of the South Yorkshire McCain Athletics Network, launched their new running section of the club. With a lot of publicity and promotion prior to the 3rd and many locals signing up their interest, it looked to be meeting a need within the community.

The running section trains on a Tuesday and Thursday at Manvers Lake Boat House, taking advantage of the £1million facilities building. After just one week of the group starting there were 30 + runners attending the training sessions. This week saw the runners go around the 3 mile or 1.25 mile loop, depending on their ability, and all were introduced to a small hill running session. With at first, some moaning, and some taking up the challenge, all completed the session, and found something new about themselves.

All runners are enjoying the group, and prefer the structured training sessions, instead of their past running on the road alone. So, letís hope the club can continue grouping at its rapid pace.

The running group are part of the South Yorkshire McCain Athletics Networks running sub group, with some coaches to attend the LIRF course being organised by the network on the 26th of June 2011 at Newfield School, Sheffield.
