Winter Road Training

MEET IN THE CAR PARK AT MYTHOLMROYD COMMUNITY CENTRE 

DEPART AT 6.45pm.

Below are details of the winter training runs on the road with options on the length and Strava Segments marked in blue on the map to go for. These are “pack runs” so runners in your particular group will regroup and no one will be left behind.

There will still be several “off road groups” who are allergic to tarmac who prefer to stick to the “Fells” with their head torches on. 

Please remember to turn up in appropriate kit for all training sessions for all weathers. Information here.
