This week's training

Monday - 19.00 - Run Social - Tilsley Park

Please meet at reception.

**new shorter routes are available for those people who want to run for less than 5km, so if you're wanting to get back into running after a break, come along!**

Whilst this is not a coached session, it will help develop your running endurance - we take a 10km (ish) route around Abingdon (shorter routes are available, 5km and 7km) and run in ability groups. No-one will be left behind and there is ALWAYS someone to run with. A great way to keep your running up AND have a mini social at the same time. Win Win!
