The sessions run from 7:15pm to 8:15pm. This is to allow time for the previous group to leave. Please do not arrive before 7:10pm.

Venue: Peterborough Athletics Arena Date: 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month Time: 19:15 to 20:15 -

Although the hire of the track will be heavily subsidised by both Vivacity and GPAN, as with all GPAN initiatives we have introduced for both senior and junior members, we intend to make a nominal charge per session of £1 per person payable on the night.

These sessions are open to all adult members of GPAN clubs (U17 or older) . Unattached runners (ie those not a member of a running club) are also welcome to attend and take part and hopefully think about joining a local club.

Get Fit for the East -- Every 2nd Wednesday from 11th July to 5th October
Venue: Bushfield Sports Centre Dates: Wednesday 13 July, 27 July 10 August, 24 August, 7 September, 21 September, 5 October. Time: 19:00 to 20:00

If you have entered Great Eastern in October what better way to get ready for it that to try the 'Get Fit 4' sessions. Aimed at helping athletes, young and not so young, those new to running and those more experienced to get in the best shape for the half marathaon. Of course these sessions won't just help for one race but will be aimed at ensuring you can achieve the targets you set yourself for any event.

The sessions will be focused on those already able to run 5k and wishing to develop their speed and fitness.

The runs from the centre will be on preplanned out and back routes. All groups will run out for 25 minutes, turn around and run back ensuring that no-one is left behind as those at the back become the ones at the front. This run will be with any Pacers who attend, who will run at their target pace and volunteers from the local road running clubs who will run at a variety of paces.

Supported by Vivacity, Peterborough City Council and Good Running Events togetrher with GPAN, these sessions will be led by qualified coaches. Best thing is - its free!

GPAN would like runners from the local clubs to come along and take part in a 50 minute run (25 mins out and 25 mins back, ensuring that no-one is left behind as those at the back will become the ones at the front after 25 minutes!!) on a picturesque route from the Centre oround Orton. You can run at whatever pace you like, but please be prepared to say what pace you will run at so if there is anyone attending the session that wants to run at that pace they will be able run with you.

Please note, there is no track alternative for volunteer/experienced club runners.
