BOURTON ROADRUNNER'S JUNIORS - TRAINING SESSIONS.
Our training sessions are usually split into two groups. Summer Training that takes place annually from 1st April until the 21st September. Winter Training takes place annually from the 22nd September until the 31st March, during which time, the sessions take place in the dark.
During the Summer Sessions we welcome members who are new to running, but during the winter session, we only accept new members who have previous experience in either School or Club Cross Country Competition.
All Training Sessions take place on the Cotswold School playing fields.
SUMMER TRAINING SESSIONS.
From April until mid July we cut the distances down and train towards 600 metres for the Under 11's and 1500 metres for the older age groups. We run regular time trials over these distances and also 300 metre and 600 metre tempo sessions.
From mid-July to September, we increase the distance to build stamina for the Cross Country Season that starts at the end of September. We run a Long or Short Time Trial around our Summer Cross Country Course. The distances for the Long Timetrial are approximately 1600 metres for the Under 11's, 3200 metres for the Under 13's and 4800 metres for the Under 15's and Under 17's. These distances are similar to those run in the Gloucestershire Cross Country League and School Competition's. The Short Timetrial drops to approximately 1km for the Under 11's, 1600 metres for the Under 13's and 3200 metres for the Under 15's and Under 17's.
During the mid-July to September period, we all run as one group.
WINTER TRAINING SESSIONS.
During the Winter Training Sessions, all member's must wear a HI VIZ VEST and a HEAD TORCH, otherwise they will not be allowed to train.
The distances run are similar to those during the Summer Timetrial and alternate between Long and Short Time Trials.
When running in the dark we use Lanterns to mark the courses.
The first period runs up to the end of December. We then evaluate the groups, for the second period, that runs from January to mid April.
Between Christmas and the New Year we endeavor to run training sessions, but times and days may change. As the Cross Country County Championships take place at the beginning of January, we try to offer sessions over this period.
ADDITIONAL TRAINING SESSIONS.
We do offer additional training sessions for our very keen runners but there are very limited places.
OTHER TRAINING INFORMATION.
We do advise all Juniors to bring a drink, especially during warm conditions. Please make sure that names are on reusable bottles.
Please make sure all Juniors wear sensible clothing. Remember that although they can get very warm when training, they can quickly get very cold afterwards. During the cold winter months, wear gloves and a warm hat, training is far more enjoyable when warm and comfortable.
We do recommend the use of Running Spikes during our training sessions, especially when wet and slippy. For safety, please use a file to round the end of each spike to avoid injury.
In the event of snow or icy conditions, training may be cancelled.
