Traditional speed session on a well maintained running track. This is a session hosted by Knavesmire Harriers and aims to improve your running speed by doing faster paced efforts. Don't be intimidated by the track, there are usually 50+ runners with a wide range of abilities and 4 coaches on hand to help and advise.As this is hosted by Knavesmire Harriers (who pay to hire the track) so by all means come along and try a session but long term it would be ever so polite to join Knavesmire as a "second claim" member.
A weekly coached technique session. Please ensure you sign up as over the Summer we reduce our lane usage, so if you are not signed in to the session then there may not be space for you to swim if you turn up to the session.
Meet in reception 7:45pm, pay the session fee to the coach who will mark you off the attendee list. If you are not signed up you will need to wait until the signed up attendees have completed signing in, to see if there is space available for you to swim.
Once allowed through to the changing area get changed (you'll need a £1 coin for the lockers) and meet poolside for the pre-swim briefing.
If it is your first time please let the coach know who will be able to explain the session to you and help you to decide which lane would best suit your ability. The session follows a specific set, but if you need to take a break then thats absolutely fine - take a rest as you need it, and its always good to take a bottle of water poolside with you. Swimming is thirsty work!
NEW SESSION FOR 2018:This session is for all abilities and will be split into groups of similar paces depending on who attends. The group run will predominantly be around the university complex and will be a mix of endurance, skill and drill work.A relaxed, friendly session for everyone, and a great opportunity to run in the safety of a group.This is also a great opportunity to "double up" and start training for the upcoming season with a brick session, by attending the Cycle Circuit Session immediately before, which offers an opportunity to develop your bike handling and group riding skills.
1 mile off road loops through the wooded area at the Tadcaster Road end of the Knavesmire. Hosted and coached by Knavesmire Harriers - so plenty of other people to run with.

The route takes us to a loop around Appleton Roebuck, Acaster Selby and Acaster Malbis which we repeat several times (light permitting). Bring lights and winter bike for the earlier season sessions. It would also be useful to have a speedo to monitor pace/effort.Go on, it's not too scary.....it's actually good fun!

Looking to attempt your first ever Century Ride? (100 Miles), or just fancy a nice long day out in the saddle? Then this is for you.
Meeting 8am at York Racecourse Corner (or en-route out of York) we'll be heading out to Stamford Bridge and making our way to Pocklington, then out via Kilnwick Percy, Millington and Huggate. On to Driffield, Kilham and Rudston, then into Bridlington.
We'll be refuelling with Fish, Chips and Ice Cream, before making the return journey.
Returning via Grindale, Burton Flemming, Wold Newton, Foxholes, Weaverthorpe, West Lutton, North Grimston, Eddlethorpe, Buttercrambe, back to Stamford Bridge, then re-trace our route from Stamford Bridge back to York Racecourse.
We aim to be back in York approx. 6pm. It will be a long day out, and for many it will be an opportunity to challenge yourself. Rest assured that you won't be on your own! Rides like this allow everyone to help and support each other, and even though you are guaranteed to be absolutely shattered by the end of the day you will feel a HUGE sense of achievement when you complete the ride!
Please be aware though that if you aren't used to cycling longer distances then you should start attending some of the Club Group Rides in the lead-up to this to help build your endurance.
This will be a NO DROP ride, and we will be moving at a pace that suits everyone. If there is a clear mix of abilities and speeds then there may be the opportunity to split the group, but this will be decided nearer the time/on the day.Given the distance it is advisable to ensure that your bike is in good working order (a service a week or two before would help bring peace-of-mind to you) to minimise the likelihood of mechanicals etc.
We'll be riding the Ironman UK Bike Course (1 lap), as a recce for all those racing this years IMUK on the 15th July. Even if you aren't racing this will still be a great day out.
Meet 8:30am at Pennington Flash Country Park if you fancy a quick Parkrun before we set off, but failing that we'll be departing on the bikes at 10am, aiming to return to the park for 2pm.We'll look to organise car sharing etc as and when we know who's attending.
This route has two main climbs, with the rest of the route undulating, but will be a good days riding.
