Training Times

The club trains three times a week as follows:

  • Tuesdays @ 7 p.m.
  • Thursdays @ 7 p.m.
  • Sundays @ 8 0r 9 a.m.

The distance depends very much on what events are coming up but generally its around 5-7 miles on a Tuesday, 7-9 on a Thursday and anywhere from 9 to 20 on a Sunday.

Dont panic about distances though as there are plenty of routes ranging from 3 miles to 20 miles, and you’ll always get someone who is running close to the distance you wish to run.

5K Route (3.1 Miles)

5k-route

This route starts by turning right out of the Termoneeny Community Centre (A) onto the Quarry Road. Follow the road up the slight hill and turn left into Drumard Road. Follow Drumard Road until its end and then turn left onto the Gulladuff Road.
