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 Spring 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.

8 week Spring Series: Starting 29 April, ending 1 July (No sessions 3 or 10 June)

First session free, £60 for remaining 7 weeks. Early Bird Discount: £50 ends 25th April

Having recently returned to running, Mary has been a huge support in getting me back on my feet in an effective and injury free way.  From dealing with specific niggles through easy to understand stretches, to offering pacing advice as I train for the marathon, Mary’s input is to the point and, above all, incredibly practical.  

Where other coaches I have spoken to have over complicated or added too much pressure into my training regime, Mary has devised a simple training plan that fits around my lifestyle and gives me the confidence that I will meet my objectives.  

Mary is an extremely knowledgeable, open and friendly coach and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their running or get over an injury.

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.
