Saucony test shoes next week

Next week, Saucony will be bringing some test shoes along to the Tuesday evening ATR. We’ll be back at Bradfield as normal and both the Koa ST and the Perigrine 8 will be available for test.

Change of Location Tonight (16th Jan)

Due to the weather forecast for this evening we will be running from Rivelin Café rather than Bradfield this evening. Our primary concern is the road conditions back into Sheffield after the run.

Inov-8 will be along this evening with their test shoes and we expect perfect conditions to try out the grip! Meet outside the Rivelin Café for a 7pm start.

Away Day! Tuesday 3rd October

We are having an away day run! Tuesday 3rd October – The Sportsman pub, Lodge Moor (S10 4LJ). 7pm- there are some great routes round Redmires reservoirs and beyond. We will have the same 3 groups. Spread the word please!

First ATR away meet

Next Tuesday 27th June we are meeting at Strines Inn- 7pm. Please park in the top car park. Great routes planned up on to Derwent Edge. The pub serves food till 9 pm so we will be back in time if anyone wants a meal or drink. Avoid Bradfield area to get out there as the Damfask relays mean the village and surrounding roads will be very busy.

Lighter evenings on the way

With the clocks going forward comes lighter evenings. From this week it should be light when we start off on our Tuesday evening run from Low Bradfield. 

Please continue to bring a suitable headtorch and to make sure it’s charged. We will still be finishing in the dark, and will be for several months yet. 

Accelerate Trail Runners is starting a second weekly run. We’ll be meeting in Rivelin every Thursday morning at 7:00am for a pre-work run through the valley. The first run will be on Thursday 2nd March.

If you are planning on coming along then please take a few minutes to book on using RunTogether.

Inov-8 will be along tonight (7th Feb) with a selection of trail shoes for us to cover in mud! A choice of styles will be available along with some informal Q&A with an inov-8 representative during post run refreshments in the Cricket Pavilion.

Trail development group

From Tuesday 10 January 2017, Alasdair will be offering a trail-specific, periodised training program, separate from the led runs we already offer.

The aim is this: get trained up to target a 10k trail race. I’m going to suggest we use the free Longshaw Trust 10 monthly race as a goal. We will see if training sessions on Tuesdays can help improve our performance (whether that’s a finishing time or finishing strong and happy) at this particular race.
