Q: When do you train?
A: Currently we have 3 training sessions. These are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6.45pm outside the Anstey Library and Saturdays at 8.45am from the same location. (click here for map).
Q: What about the beginners? When do they train.
A: Beginners sessions are on a Tuesday and meet at 6.30pm outside the Anstey Library on Paper Mill Close. See our Beginners Page for dates of when our beginners courses run (if you pardon the pun!)
Q: How fast do I have to be?
A: SPEED DOESN’T MATTER! There really is no emphasis on speed at Team Anstey. We welcome amblers (those who want to walk), beginners who are just starting their running journey to those who have been running for years. Our ethos is as long as you turn up you will be going faster with us than you will on the sofa.
Q: How far do you run on training nights?
A: We tend to run out and backs. This basically means the Run Leader will set a time for how long you run out for. Everyone runs in the same route for the same length of time. Once you hit the timeframe set you turnaround and run the same route back. So regardless of the speed everyone runs at, we should all end back at the same time.
Q: I’ve never been before. Can I just turn up on one of the training nights?
A: Yep. We recommend proper running wear including running shoes and a high visibility vest. Other than that just come along!
Q: Will I need to pay?
A: You can train 4 times (on a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday) before looking to make a decision to join. If you’d like to join please view our membership page.
Q: Oooooh where do I get one of those running vests or awesome hoodies?
A: See our store page and we will be happy to order one for you
Q: My kids really love Team Anstey. Any chance I can get any awesome hoodie or training tee for them?
A: I'm glad you asked, yes you can! Please view our Online Store page for the sizes and kit available.
Q: What is this LRRL I keep hearing about?
A: That’s the Leicestershire Road Running League, a series of road races that take place across the summer and winter, the winter races being closed to club members only.
Q: How do I find out about something not covered here?
A: You can ask one of the Run Leaders or any of the committee members on a training night. Or feel free to send us an email using the contact page and we'll respond to it as soon as we can.
Q: I have an issue I want to discuss. How can I do this?
A: The club Welfare Officers can be contacted via Facebook or via the contact page on this website with any concerns or issues you have and we will look to answer them as quickly as possible. Alternatively have a look at the committee page and you ask one of the committee members. We are all here to help.
