Training Sessions for the next week

Please remember that all good training plans should include the appropriate amount of rest and recovery and that the wide range of training sessions offered each week by the club is to enable us to cater for all abilities and availabilities - no-one expects anyone to attend all the sessions!!!!

With the darker evenings, we are now using the WINTER ROUTES on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please see the club run route page for the route details. Please make sure you listen to the run leaders at the start of the club run sessions for announcements and safety information. If possible please wear something bright or hi viz to club run.

Those Eagles who run in Richmond may want to note that because of refurbishment works, Richmond Lock Footbridge is scheduled to be closed until the beginning of December 2019. For the Sunday long run, you will need to cross the river at Twickenham Bridge which is the next bridge along – a diversion of about 0.5mile (0.7k).

Check Facebook for further details and any last minute changes, or email coaching@ealingeagles.com if you have any queries.

Please note that the offer of Mon / Wed club runs requires the availability of volunteers to be leaders and tail runners. The coached sessions require input from qualified coaches / leaders or experienced runners but anyone who is willing to help out and run at a gentle pace can tail a run (and make use of the time to have a recovery run, to work on your running form and to get to know other people in the club). If you have made use of the club training sessions, please play your part in making the club training sessions possible. https://www.ealingeagles.com/tail-runner-schedule

Allie is passionate about promoting the benefits of running as therapy in the spheres of mental health and confidence building, and is a die-hard champion for female participation in the sport. She has recently founded Ultra Awesome – an online community that aims to inspire and support more people to take the step up to ultra distance and adventure running.
