Training sessions

Sunday mornings

9:30am from the Club House

When a big race is not on, Sundays are for those long, slow training runs. We run out from the clubhouse into the surrounding countryside, making as much use as possible of the wide variety of terrain on the commons of Frensham, Tilford, Hankley or Crooksbury (amongst others).

Tuesday evenings - "Improve your speed" - summer sessions

6:30pm at All Hallows School, Weybourne Road, Farnham from 28th March

We will be training on the field. All standards of runner are welcome. This training is almost guaranteed to improve your pace and is suitable for all speeds of runners.

To give an idea of what we do, this is a typical session:

Don’t worry if you haven’t tried any thing like this before, as we are keen to introduce new and not so new runners to this type of training.

If you have any queries please email: farnhamrunners@hotmail.com

Wednesday evenings

7pm from the Club House

Six to seven groups generally form up - those who want to go further or faster and those who'd like to keep it steady.

During the winter the runs are mostly around Farnham town where we can find street lighting. Longer runs are out to Aldershot or Badshot Lea for those who want to.

During the summer months the runs can be on a variety of terrain over the many commons within easy reach of the clubhouse. Again, the distances and speeds can vary according to needs and ability.

Distances range from 5 to 11 miles at 10 minute mile pace and faster up to 6 to 7 minute mile pace. If you have not reached these standards yet please email us for advice about how Farnham Runners can help you.
