At Team Anstey we have a varied training days to suit all needs. We train every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
On Tuesday we meet at 6.45pm at The Martin School on Link Road. Thursdays are at 6.30pm from the same location (click here for map). On Saturday we meet in the morning at 8.45am outside the Anstey Library.
Tuesday nights are club out and backs, the distance is well suited to those progressing starting out. We also have a group that do track work at Saffron Lane running club for those looking to do specific speed work.
We have regular beginers groups that go in 10 - 12 week cycles for those who have no experiance going from couch to 5k. Check out the beginers page for more details.
We always start with a 5-10 minute dynamic warm up in order to help avoid injuries during training. At the end of every session there will be the opportunity for a variety of stretches, led by one of the Run Leaders. Although we cannot guarantee you won't feel sore the next day, by starting off and finishing your training session with a good warm up and cool down you'll be in the best shape going forward.
We want to ensure safety for everyone so recommend the appropriate clothing and footwear for the conditions. We also encourage leaving the earphones at home (cars can hurt!)
Our ethos is to support, encourage, motivate and inspire our team members to reach their desired goals and aspirations.
Team Anstey Amblers and Runners was formed by Geoff Roberts with the clubs first meeting on 30th October 2014. Geoff wanted to form a club that is open and inclusive. We are not focused on who can run the fastest or farthest. Although running can feel like a solo effort, we truly are a team and focus on supporting all our members.
We want to continuously evolve and be a pro-active running club. We are affiliated with England athletics and the Leicestershire Road Running League (LRRL).
Whatever your reasons, for wanting to train we can help you. Begin your journey with us...
