Hilly Heaven - Tuesdays 7pm

Interval and hill training is for everyone, not just for committed athletes that like to race. Interval training accelerates cardiovascular conditioning; developing a stronger heart, efficient lungs, and greater blood supply to (pretty much) every part of the body.

Intervals is great neuromuscular conditioning for running, encouraging efficient and safe running style. Interval work develops different energy systems within the muscle and promotes faster recovery, giving more “gears” to our running. Interval training boosts metabolic rate during the session and for days afterwards, burning calories even when not exercising: a powerful ally in any weight management strategy.


There is nothing like the discipline of track to focus on your running. A variety of interval work to week on week boost your speed endurance.

Based at the top class facility Little Marlow Track, by Summer a delightful rural location to train. In Winter a welcome change to Marlow streetlights: the floodlighting make you think it's daytime.

We share this session with Handy Cross Runners. 7pm - 8:30pm, changing and showers available. Bring £1 and ask for Mike Hickman. All levels welcome.

Little Marlow Track is easy to get to. Second right after crossing A404 on road out of Marlow toward Bourne End. You can see the floodlights from the road.
