Tuesday Club Runs Information

Phil MacQuaid is authorised by the committee to coordinate the club runs. He may cancel the run for any group for which there is no run leader available for that evening. He may also ask runners to change to a different group if he considers the one they have joined to be inappropriate.

Beginners Group

Do you want to lose weight or get fit?

Or is your ambition something more serious like running a marathon?

The YTRRC Beginners and Slower Runners Group could be exactly what you need.

For those new to running or for those returning to running after a break for illness, injury, pregnancy or apathy and do not feel confident that they could join the club runs this is an ideal introduction (or reintroduction) to running. You don't need any running experience or to be particularly fit. If you can jog 200 yards you should find no problems joining this group.

The group operates under the guidance of experienced Yeovil Town RRC run leader who will give support, or arrange a "buddy" to give support, to anyone who needs it. It is open to anyone, from complete beginners to those who already run but don't feel confident in joining the main club runs.

Paced Groups

A selection of distances and paces to suit all. See each club run night for details of the routes being used.

For all groups please note that we always wait for the slowest runner and will regroup at regular intervals.

Training Session

An experienced coach runs a training session on Tuesdays and meets as normal at YTFC but it takes place at Abbey Manor Park.  You will be escorted there from the Football Club.  On days where the club meet at Goldenstones please meet directly at Abbey Manor Park.

The training session is ideal for increase your speed and technique.  Each week will have different content.  The sessions also compliment our Friday Track Sessions.

Run Leaders

The club runs are excellently attended with often almost 100 members turning up on a Tuesday evening. The ability/pace groups for each distance are dependent upon there being a run leader for each group. Phil MacQuaid coordinates all runs. He always needs run leaders. Please help him out by volunteering (and letting him know in advance) if you possibly can. Phil has the authority of the committee to appoint run leaders.

Run leading does not require any qualification other than knowledge of the route(s) and a willingness to take responsibility for keeping the group together. By volunteering, you will both be putting something back into your club and helping other members by ensuring that there are sufficient leaders so that all distance and ability groups are available for them.
