The Club are once again planning a training weekend in Aviemore.
At the moment we are trying to gauge interest for numbers so that we can get prices and firm up on plans.
For those who haven’t been on one of these training weekends before, we head up to Aviemore on Friday, checking in by 2pm.
You make your own way there or arrange to car share.
There is usually a run organised at 3pm before heading back to get changed for dinner.
You then have Friday evening to do your own thing.
Saturday morning is an interval session after your breakfast has been digested, followed by a short Pilates class after lunch.
You then have a few hours to yourself in the afternoon before dinner and a fun quiz on Saturday evening.
Sunday morning starts with breakfast followed by a run or walk depending on your preference.
Lunch is also provided on Sunday before heading home.
Accommodation is shared and full board.
We will also try to organise one or two talks over the weekend relating to running/training.
This weekend is open to both T&F and SE athletes. Previous weekends have taken place in September and this is the plan again this year depending on availability at Glenmore.
If this is something you are interested in, or would like further information on, please comment below or speak to Elaine Jamieson or Mae McIsaac.
