ROAD RUNNING

Training

Meeting regularly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, our group caters for all different standards and is aimed at training for middle to long distance running (up to marathon). We start around 7pm. Groups also often meet up for Sunday morning runs.

Joggers and beginners, with Barrie Saunders normally start out at about 6.15 – 6.30pm (Tuesdays & Thursdays) and on Sundays at about 11am.

Competitions

TVH runners take part in many road races throughout the year. A regular e-newsletter is sent to the club’s road runners giving details of forthcoming events and providing a centralised entrance service to races.

TVH ROAD RACE SERIES

TVH runners take part in the annual TVH road race series – “TVH Endurance Cup”. Club members win points for taking part in nominated road-races and trophies are awarded each year. The races are meant to be evenly-spaced through the Summer, fairly easy to access from West London, not too expensive and reasonably well-attended. It includes the two Southern Road Relays and races up to half-marathon distance.

SOUTHERN AND NATIONAL ROAD RELAYS

The road relays are a biannual Southern and National Championships, with the longer 12 and 6 Stage Road Relays for the men and women held in the spring, while the shorter 6 and 4 Stage Road Relays for the men and women are held in the autumn.
