Currently with Covid 19 restrictions we are running training nights in groups of 6 .
Tuesdays members can choose Hills or pacing sessions, While Thursdays is a 5 to 6 mile loop that starts from Anstey.
We encourage members to organize runs between themselves over the weekends. Our facebook page is a great way to arrange these runs as well as making new friends .
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!
At Team Anstey we have a varied training days to suit all needs. We train every Tuesday and Thursday.
Currently we run group sessions of 6 runners that start from 6:00pm to 6:40pm depending on popularity .
On Tuesdays we do pacing where we work on our speed strength and stamina . You can choose to do hills or pacing.
On Thursdays we do group runs between 5 to 7 miles around the Anstey area .

We normally meet pre-Covid at the Anstey Library in Anstey (near to the Jubilee Hall - view map). Please see our Facebook Page for up to date information on training nights.
We have regular beginners groups that go in 10 - 12 week cycles for those who have no experience going from couch to 5k. This concludes with a club parkrun at Braunstone Park on the final Saturday of the training programme. Check out the beginners page for more details.
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 strive 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...
And think about why you started.
