Coaching

At Bitton Road Runners we have a friendly group of coaches, who are here to provide help and advice to everyone – no matter what age or ability.

Group sessions run from the clubhouse, every Tuesday and Thursday evening, starting at 7pm. They run throughout the year and include:

  • Tempo
  • Interval
  • Fartlek
  • Track
  • Hills
  • Kenyan Hills


In addition, our coaches are available for one-to-one coaching or mentoring - and can provide you with any assistance to achieve your own personal running goals.

Please approach any member of the Coaching Team for assistance – we are all here to help you.
