This evening we heard from Sally Onn who is the chair of St Albans Striders.
The Club was set up in 1984 to cater for people interested in road running and cross country including those with no particular experience of, or aptitude for running. Many of the founder members are still with the Club which now has around 300 members.
The club meets at the Westminster Lodge Athletics Track, Verulam Park, Holywell Hill, St Albans, Hertfordshire AL1 2DJ (behind Westminster Lodge Leisure Center) at the following times:
* Tuesday evening: 19:00
* Thursday evening: 19:00
* Saturday 08:00
We have use of the athletics track on Tuesdays under the guidance of our Coach. He organises a group session of interval training ranging from 200m to mile reps. There is a schedule of these coached sessions on the Training Schedule page.
These are communal sessions where everybody runs at their own pace around the track. On Thursdays we do not use the track, but a few different runs of different speeds and distances go out onto the road.
On Thursdays we meet at the same place (Westminster Track) and a number of runs go out on the roads and paths around St Albans. We do not have use of the track on Thursdays, but we do have use of the changing rooms and showers.
