Beginners

The last Beginners' Course was a great success.  Congratulations to everyone who took part.  We look forward to the new one.  Details are on our Beginners page.

Training Schedules

Members meet regularly every Tuesday and Thursday evening for structured training sessions. In the winter months we meet outside Applemore Health & Leisure Centre and train around the local roads of Hythe and Dibden Purlieu. In the summer months we usually meet in Didbden Inclosure and train in the New Forest. Please check the training schedule confirmation of meeting and training locations.

England Athletics have announced that organised Athletic Running Activities that are Covid secure can take place for both Children and Adults ( no Covid group size limits). Therefore as from April 13th 2021 we have returned to "normal training"!  Here is our Risk Assessment. Please take some time to read before Training. Not forgetting to maintain Social Distancing during the sessions.

Chris Harris and the other coaches are really pleased to say we now have "12" rotating Coaches and Leaders taking the sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday. So be ready to train hard and enjoy; our new Folk are jolly keen!

We all look forward to seeing everyone.

The Coaches!

Here's what one satisfied runner said about training,

"Mostly I run on my own so it’s really easy to just drift along in my own world. The training makes me work hard in a structured and fun way. The coaches are all great and very encouraging regardless of the standard of your running. It’s a very nice atmosphere at training."

Time Trials

Coach Chris says,

"Here are the results from the Timed 1 Mile Session that took place on the grass track at the New Forest Academy on Tuesday 24 May. Well done to one and all, a brilliant effort made by everyone. Thank you for all coming along to support and quite honestly make -The Hardley Runners Training Sessions."

Independent Training Schedules

We are a group who are extremely fortunate to continue doing the sport we love in amazing surroundings!

Independent training schedules have been very helpful. Now that regular training is back, we are not producing new ones but we have over a year's worth which are available below as a resource for people who can't make it to our regular sessions

To add to this, here are

Here are some suggested independent training schedules from Coach Chris

Please give your feedback to Chris as it will help her design future schedules so they meet your needs.

The training schedules include regular measured miles so you can measure your progress.  Chris will be delighted if you let her know your results.  Here are some recent ones
