Beginner's Graduation & Next Improver's Course

10k – the next step after 5k! 

Have you completed the club beginners’ programme or are otherwise able to run 5.5k?

Currently running at or willing to run at a pace of 8min/k (parkrun 5k in 40mins)?

Want to run faster and further?

Come along to beginners’ graduation and find out more about increasing your distance, talk about training plans and discuss opportunities for training.

You will find us in the Rose & Crown on Wednesday 22 February from 7.30pm and in FarmW5 on Thursday 23 February from 11am.

In particular, with the January beginners’ programme finishing at the end of February, a second Improvers course will be starting 10am on Thursday 2 March (with a holiday on Maundy Thursday 13 April). This course will aim to progress Eagles from running 5.5k to running a 10k race at the beginning of May and to provide an introduction to speed work.

There is no requirement to attend all the sessions but you will make most progress if you do and you will also be expected to do “homework” outside the Thursday sessions as part of a training plan for 10k.

The length of the sessions will necessarily depend on the distance being run that day but you should allow from about an hour to 1 ½ hours. Most sessions will meet in Gunnersbury Park.
