Club Run Sessions

Structured Leader or Coach Led Club Sessions

Ponteland Runners offer a variety of sessions. Each group will be led by a qualified leader.  Wednesday and Monday sessions all meet at Ponteland Leisure Centre Car Park at 7pm.  Sunday sessions (9am) are sometimes held at different locations.

Session content and who’s leading each session will be available on the club website and advertised beforehand on the Facebook page. We want all runners to enjoy the run sessions in a safe environment and in a group that best suits their ability. The times stated next to the Wednesday group sessions below are indicative and not set in stone!

If you’re unsure which group to run with, please speak to any of the run leaders before the session starts.

On Monday evenings we have an interval session and a steady run. Both sessions are suitable for all abilities.

Sunday Long Run 09:00hrs –  approx 90 minute session (varies)

These are longer run sessions that usually vary from 7 – 11 miles depending on the time of year and other club activities. The distances and meeting points will be advertised on the club Facebook page in advance of each Sunday.

Beginners Sessions

We usually run one group for beginners commencing in late March or early April of each year. The aim of this ten week course is to get people running 5k and is similar to the ‘Couch to 5k programme’. Facebook will provide more information about this at the appropriate time.
