Join our summer series for some beautiful off-road run adventures

Inspired by the marathon or simply by lighter mornings, warmer weather and the desire to get fit and explore? If so, why not join our Brighton summer series of off-road running suitable for all levels and speeds…

If you love the Downs, and love running but want to get fit(ter), without the pressure of necessarily aiming for a race, then join our summer series.

It is being designed with YOU in mind. Once you book, you receive an email confirmation asking you to outline what your goals are for the summer series.

It could simply be, ‘I want to feel and become fitter,’ or ‘I am training for a half marathon and want to build endurance/speed.’ Whatever it is, tell us and then we will build the programme around everyone’s combined goals.

All our runs will be off-road but it could mean that we will do some interval laps in the middle of nowhere to build up stamina. Or do a six mile loop that can be repeated if building distance so you can stay to do as many as is suitable for your training.

This means that, if you can’t make every single session, it’s not the end of the world (check the details on our booking page for the event to see all the dates which are a mixture of Sat and Sunday, all starting 8.30am). And it enables us to provide the kind of training that suits every level of runner from the ‘eek, I need to get fit,’ runner to the ‘I’m focused on reaching my half ironman goal,’ to those who are aiming for an autumn marathon or our Girls Run the World Run Away trip to Valencia this October.

So, sign up to get our early bird deal of £60 before April 30th and fill out your goals questionnaire so we can get planning.

And if you’re worrying about these kinds of things, ‘ooh, I’m not fast enough, what if I hold everyone up?’ OR ‘I’m not a runner like those women I see in the pictures,’ or even, ‘I want to get faster, will it be fast enough,’ don’t worry, we’ve got you covered, we’ve been doing this for eight years.

All we ask is that you can run 5km** without stopping when joining the summer series. If you can do that, don’t let your fear of the ‘what if’s,’ prevent you from the taking on the opportunity to explore the what could be.

Each course comes with a training plan and you do one session with us, and two either on your own or meet up with others in your group to run together. Depending on your fitness level, we work using either distance every week or time on your feet, so don’t worry if you think that you move at the pace of a snail and will hold people up. You won’t. We’ve spent over eight years now training women to run and we are experts at helping beginners. Many of the women we train at marathon distance now started out with us learning from scratch.

Whether you want to run for fitness, for feel-good hormones, for a goal or to  meet others, come and join us on May 3rd at 7pm. (Please note the course switches to Tuesday 23rd May/Tuesday 20th June and there is no half term session 31st May. All other sessions are Wednesday evenings.
