Where The Bowling Green Pub

What times – Walk/jog to 10-9 minute miles at 6.45 PM – 9-8 to sub 7 minute miles at 7.00 PM

Please walk, run, cycle or car share if you can to reduce impact on the local area.

Please park in the car park opposite first (the car park with the height restriction bar) to keep the area around the pub as clear as possible.

Runs usually last from around 30 minutes to around an hour, and we cover paces ranging from 13 to 7 minute miles. A typical session will start with a gentle warmup, a run based on either a particular distance or route or perhaps a fartlek or intervals session. We’ll then return to outside the Bowling Green Pub where you’ll be guided through a stretch prior to all joining back up for social time at the Bowling Green Pub with the legendary free chips and sandwiches. We do not allow dogs due to safety issues.

You can be sure that you’ll receive a warm welcome and during the run your group leader will ensure you aren’t left behind. Check out our busy Facebook page which will offer an outline to the choices during that weeks session, or get in touch via the contacts page.

The pace offerings:

We offer a comprehensive range of speed groups covering all common time splits, runners are of course welcome to move up and down groups freely providing they can maintain the advertised pace. We take great care to ensure newcomers have a pleasant experience if you’re unsure which group to join, come along and let us do the worrying for you.

CR is friendly and welcoming to absolute beginners who wouldn’t call themselves ‘runners’, but it also provides useful training and advice for fools trying for a sub-3 hour marathon, while catering for every level of runner between these two extremes. It frequently encourages the consumption of alcohol and cake. CR is all things to all runners.
