TRAINING GROUPS

There are various groups of runners in and around Westville who meet at different places, times and days. Join one of the training groups to help you reach your running dreams and targets.
Things to bear in mind:

* For security purposes, when on the road, run in a group and do not leave anyone behind. There are no sweepers on any of the runs.

* Runners must be self sufficient in terms of hydration and nutrition. There are no water points provided by the groups.

* Please note that you run these training runs at your own risk and are responsible for your own safety whilst on the run.
