Training

We offer a wide range of training options ideal for the novice jogger right up to club athlete standard. Grantham Running Club have six UKA licenced coaches who structure and oversee these workouts. As sessions may be subject to a late change due to races or weather conditions please email us before your initial visit.

We run promptly at the times stated. Please arrive early to change/warm-up etc. Our novice sessions on a Monday are particularly suitable for those who are completely new to running. They are also ideal for those people who may want to enter their first charity run eg a Race For Life event.
