Wednesday Training Schedule (New Beginnings)

Posted on Posted in General, Road Racing, Training

New Beginnings

‘New Beginnings’ is a training group for North Down AC members. It is aimed at those new to running or coming back after a break, who are able to run 5k in about 27 – 37 minutes (approx 9-12 mins per mile) and not yet comfortably progressed to 10k.

Meeting at McKee, Bangor on Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm, the session will involve warm-up, a training run or session of about 40-45 minutes, and cool down and stretches at the end.

There is no extra cost involved other than the club membership fee, details of which can be found in our membership section:

Due to the numbers attending on Wednesday nights, it is appreciated if these guidelines are adhered to. This is to ensure a manageable ratio of leaders and participants, and to ensure the club members which the group is aimed at, are benefitting from the sessions.

Those who are able to run 5k under about 27 minutes, and 10k in under about 55 minutes will have more benefit attending the Monday Night group which meets at Bangor Sportsplex at 7.00pm.

Check out the Monday night schedule here:

Alternatively, there is a track session at Ballykillaire Sportsplex every Wednesday, starting at 6pm, which is aimed at all abilities.
