Information for Juniors and Seniors
Junior members train on Tuesdays between 6pm and 7pm, meeting at Bellcraig Community Centre. Training is provided by Scottish Athletics qualified coaches with an emphasis on fun. We cater for juniors aged between 9 and 16 years old.
Tuesday focuses on outdoor running sessions using the nearby Caldercuilt running track and local area, with generally a repeating five week cycle:
- Week 1 – Pack run
- Week 2 – Fartlek
- Week 3 – 80m reps
- Week 4 – Pyramid session
- Week 5 – Hills
All junior sessions consist of a warm-up, drills, followed by the main training session and cool down.
Senior members train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We meet at Bellcraig Community Centre at 7pm and head out at 7:15pm. We occasionally train on other nights too, for example strength conditioning on Mondays and meeting for long runs or exploring new trails on Sundays.
Thursday tends to be a night for tempo runs round the local area with routes covering between five and seven miles. Our running groups leave at staggered times or complete shorter or longer distances as we all aim to meet back at the academy at roughly the same time.
On Tuesday we focus on speed sessions, using the local Caldercuilt running track, which is two minutes from the community cente, or the surrounding area for hill reps, interval training and fartlek runs.
