Senior Road Running

Select each ‘tab’ below to see the details about locations, pace, distance & contacts.

This group runs each Monday and Thursday evening at 6.30pm, from the overflow car park behind the Leisure Centre (except for Summer Mondays when we meet at the top car park at Tegg’s Nose).  The group aim is to take people from the B Group and develop them as far as possible.

This group will run for between 60 and 90 minutes at paces from 6 -7:30 min/mile – runs in Summer months will aim to use trails were possible and so the pace may be slower to allow for the demands of the terrain. The group will aim to maintain a relatively constant pace throughout with minimal stopping (as much as terrain allows). Group members will be encouraged to take part and represent the club in races

If you are not a member of Macclesfield Harriers but would like to come and run with us for a few sessions prior to deciding to join, please call/email one of the contacts below or email tryarun@macclesfield-harriers.co.uk  – this will ensure you receive the correct information on our meeting point, start times, leader details.
