We know sometimes you might miss a session for all sorts of reasons so if this happens we'll give you a credit for a popup, dawn or Strength for Runners session.


We think running together adds fun, motivation and challenge to running and helps you reach your running goals, whatever they may be. Join our structured group run sessions, each including a warm up, cool down and stretches. Over the 8 week series we will explore a variety of run workouts to boost and mix-up your running.

We make every session different and give each session a purpose. As the series progresses the sessions will target endurance, speed, strength and running technique using the paths and hills of Hilly Fields park. 

All our sessions are carefully designed to be suitable for all running abilities. 

We want you to use our sessions in your own running, and we’ll give you session notes to help you.

Your run leader will be Mary Brooking, an England Athletics licensed coach. Mary has been a runner for many years participating in a variety of events from park runs to marathons and is keen to share her love of running, her understanding of its mental and physical benefits, and the importance of having a structure to your running to prevent injury as well as improving performance. Mary is also a Sports Massage therapist so brings a unique combination of skills to the running sessions she leads.

Mary is an excellent running coach. She helped me to make a personalised training plan for my half marathon.

When I got injured she supported me in adapting the plan and helped me to not lose faith! I'm very grateful and really recommend her services.

Thanks Mary!


Thank you Mary for improving my running but most of all thanks for making me feel great every Friday morning.


Training with Mary has been a real eye opener into all the different ways to approach interval and sprint training as a massively beneficial addition to running.In particular the 1km progression runs we did recently which felt like they had an immediate effect on my 5km time at the following Park Run!

This is the type of training that really benefits runners of all levels, and would be much harder to do alone, without Mary's positive encouragement.
