Adult training

 

Adult training takes place at Irvine Sports Club from 7pm to 8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, meeting in the foyer from 6.45pm. Training is free for the first 4 weeks. To join the club the fees are £60 per year which can be made as a one off payment or taken by standing order at £5 per month.


There are a variety of different training sessions available throughout the year which include intervals, hills, short runs and long runs. These training sessions will usually take place on the paths and roads of Irvine, the beach park, Irvine moor or on the 400m track located behind the sports club.
