Wednesday night coaching on Primrose Hill

We are currently running track sessions on Tuesdays at Mile End and Thursdays at Battersea Park track. Coaching sessions with the club take place at the same time as our Wednesday night run, they may consist of speed work on the Regent’s Park track, hill sessions on Primrose Hill or other targeted exercises designed to build core strength and speed.

All coaching sessions are undertaken with trained coaches, for more enquiries please email coaching@londonfrontrunners.org.

 

Track sessions

Locations:
Tuesday – Mile End Park Stadium, 190 Burdett Road, E3 4HL
Thursday – Battersea Park Millennium Arena, East Carriage Drive, Battersea Park, SW11 4NJ

Meeting time: 18.45

Run starts: 19:00

Please arrive by 18.45 for a 19:00 start time. There can be queues in the evening, so aim to be at the reception between 18.30 – 18.45.

Who are these sessions intended for?

These sessions are intended for runners who are already fit and who are looking to improve their running. These track sessions can help push you that extra bit.

The sessions will be physically demanding – you don’t need to be fast, but you do need to be able to run for an hour to get the most from the sessions. If you have never done a structured coaching session before, you are strongly advised to try a Wednesday night session before attending.

What sorts of exercises will it involve?

Warm ups, drills, intervals, and a cool down. The session will change from week to week.

Where do we meet?

Mile End Park or Battersea Park Arena. Please note that for Mile End access is through Rhodeswell Road (see map). We don’t have exclusive use of the track, so you will need to be mindful of other runners. The coach will give an intro to track etiquette as needed.

How much will it cost?

Entry to the track is £3.25 . Please bring a 20p coin for the lockers (non-refundable).

What about showers and storage for bicycles?

The track has changing facilities and showers, though admittedly not the most luxurious. If you are coming by bike, you can lock it by the track.
