Before joining - Try us out first!
We welcome all levels of runner at RRC. We encourage everyone who is interested in joining us to come along and see how we operate and participate in a few of our sessions before committing themselves to joining. The best session to join us as a first run is the Monday or Thursday evening session, held at 7pm at Warrender Park, Eastcote on Monday & Ruislip Cricket Club, Ruislip on Thursdays. This session has a wide range of runs available and is a good way of getting to meet people.
Am I good enough to come along?
Yes, we have all abilities of runners and absolutely everyone is welcome.
What will we do at this session?
If you decide to come along, expect to do a gentle warm-up jog around the hall followed by the weekly announcements. We then split into groups of various levels and go off to run! We encourage you to stay afterwards and chat with other members about the club. We think you'll find RRC a sociable and enjoyable club to join.
2020 Training Sessions
We run a varied set of weekly runs in order to develop runners across a wide range of abilities with structured sessions, trail runs in the local area, and regular easy runs around Ruislip.
Easy Run – Monday at 7pm- every week - Warrender Park (Entrance on Myrtle Avenue)
This is an easy/recovery run that consists of a gentle paced run of around 3-5k often with a shorter option for newer runners with pauses along the way to allow runners to re-group. The sessions are a great introduction for new members to the club are geared towards slower paced runners.
Club Run – Tuesday at 7pm – every week - Varied locations (Ruislip Cricket Club/Swakeleys Park/ Harefield/ South Ruislip)
Our Club Run takes place in the street lit streets around Ruislip, Eastcote or Ickenham of between 5-8km for runners who want to develop their pace and endurance. We use varied routes and loops to make it fun for a wider range of runners and include some hill training too!
Tempo Runs – Thursday at 7pm - every week - Ruislip Cricket Club or South Ruislip
Tempo (or Threshold) Runs are designed to complement Interval Training by building both speed and endurance at your race pace; great for anyone looking to improve their race times and achieve personal bests! On the dark nights we will be running loops in street lit areas of Ruislip and surrounding.
Long Run – Sunday at 8:30am every week from various locations
