Our training sessions are split into pace groups to enable runners to train with others of similar ability.
For the system to work we encourage members to run in the appropriate group for their ability level. This ensures that everyone is appropriately challenged during their training, and receives the right level of session to help with their running development. Appropriate time ranges for a 10k relative to each group are on this page, to help runners choose a group that is right for them.
Prospective members are more than welcome to join any of our training groups to get a feel for the club before deciding whether to sign up. Visit our Why Penny Lane Striders? page to meet some of our runners, find out why they joined, and how they have benefited from being part of the club.
