The Ullswater Way is a super day of Trail Running totalling 20 miles, with multiple cafe stops on the way to rest and refuel. It's a brilliant challenge, with stunning scenery. It's also a great opportunity to run at a slower more social pace and get to know your fellow club members.
If the full 20 miles isn't your thing, then there is the opportunity to stop at several points on the route and catch the Ullswater Steamer back.
Details on the route here: http://www.ullswater.com/the-u...
We'll be departing early, making the drive up and getting breakfast en-route. This will time a spot of lunch perfectly in the middle of the route, then we can grab an evening meal prior to departing for home.
More details to follow as and when we know interest.
Fast paced group training ride.The pace will depend on who turns up and hopefully we will get several groups of 6-8 riders of similar ability. 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!
Weekly brick session to practice the essential transition skills needed for triathlon events, and also to help condition your legs to running straight off the bike.Do as little or as much as you like, with coaches on hand to provide help, advice and to look after your kit whilst you ride/run.If you want to do chain gang then this starts and finishes in the same location, so you can take part in chain gang and then get straight out for a brief run whilst the coaching team look after your kit.
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!
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.
A 90 minute coached session based on improving technique and endurance. We have 3 lanes roughly at 6 mins/400m, 7 mins/400m and 8 mins/400m. Bring your toys (fins and paddles) to get the most out of the session.
This is a popular session so if you cannot make it please sign out ASAP and post on the club swim group Facebook page.
