We run 2 or 3 times a week with a number of groups going out at different speeds from approx. 6:30 / 7 min miling to 11 min miling. We meet at the Athletics Track in Westimnster Lodge, Verulam Park, Holywell Hill, St Albans, Hertfordshire AL1 2DJ (behind Westminster Lodge Leisure Center) at the following times:
- Tuesday evening: 19:00
- Thursday evening: 19:00
- Saturday 08:00
If you want to try out the club we are happy for you to try 3 sessions, however we ask that if you come more often than that, you become a member
- it's very reasonable!
On Tuesdays we run on the roads and also on the track (where our Coach organises a group session of interval training ranging from 200m to mile reps). There is a schedule of these coached track sessions on the Training Schedule page. These are communal sessions where everybody runs at their own pace around the track.
On Thursdays we do not use the track, but a few different runs of different speeds and distances go out onto the road. We do not have use of the track on Thursdays, but we do have use of the changing rooms and showers.
*Note: Saturday runs are regular, but usually by arrangment - there is no guarantee that a run will leave at these times. Also a few groups may go out at different speeds so it may be worth checking that there is a group for your speed. Just ask on the mesageboard or at a Wesminster Lodge meeting.
Monthly Pub Run
The last Saturday in every month there is a 'pub run', currently these are based around the Elephant and Castle in Amwell, AL4 8EA. These generally consist of two loops (typically 7 to 8 miles each) the first leaves about 9:30 returning about 10:15 to meet the second group and start another loop at 10:30. Again the pace can vary but the second loop is usually quite "steady". You could do either , or both, then enjoy a sociable lunch or just a drink with the other runners.
