Club Sessions

Following the Covid-19 restrictions, we currently meet at different locations each week with sessions being pre-booked in advance. The timings and locations are shared each week via email. email us at burgesshillrunners@gmail.com to be added to the list.

The Club is normally based in the gym at Burgess Hill Girls School, Keymer Road, Burgess Hill and meets at the school on most Wednesdays. There are some exceptions to this (see below) so please check this website/ social media or phone another member to be sure. Changing facilities are available at the School.

Winter (mid August - May)

From locations around Burgess Hill out to a variety of destinations in Burgess Hill (well lit and quiet where possible). There are monthly sessions at the track at Lewes Leisure Centre, Mountfield Road, Lewes (1945-2100 hrs). These are usually the first Wednesday in the month.

Summer (May – mid August)

From locations around Burgess Hill, out onto footpaths to a variety of destinations in the countryside surrounding Burgess Hill. There are usually three or four WSFRL races held on Wednesday evenings, and, on these occasions only Beginners and Improvers’ sessions are held to try and encourage runners to participate in the fun run and also enable coaches to do so.

The format for groups will usually be:

A 10-15 minute full warm up during which time club announcements are made; this is followed by a gentle/steady run. The training session itself; this will usually consist of two or three components followed by a run back to the school. A ten minute stretch/warm down during which time any (reminder) announcements are made.
