At Team Anstey we are an all inclusive club and have a variety of training sessions to suit all needs and abilities. We train every Tuesday and Thursday. These group sessions usually start at 6:30pm. Our meeting point is based at the Memorial by Anstey Jubilee Hall on Stadon Road.
On Tuesdays we usually offer a number of sessions, including a pacing session, where we work on our speed strength and stamina, or you can choose to do a hills session or join a 20 minute Out and Back group.
On Thursdays we do a group 30 minute Out and Back or planned running activities around the village, for example a compass run where we meet at a crossroad and run in the direction of compass points and back.
If not already park running or racing, we encourage members to organise runs between themselves over the weekends.
We post all our training sessions and social events on our Team Anstey Amblers and Runners Facebook page which is only accessible to members. If you have not joined yet but want to try us out then please request to join us.
Beginners can have a months trial of taster sessions then if you enjoy the sessions we ask you to join the club as a member.
We also have beginners groups that last for 10 weeks for those who have no experience, going from couch to 5k. This concludes with a club Parkrun on the final Saturday of the training programme.
We hope you will join us.
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.
