MT will be running a Thursday evening run session leaving at 6.45pm sharp from Sefton Park Boating lake on Aigburth Drive, L17 4JE
(Please note there are no changing facilities available)

The aim of the session will be to prepare for a September/October half marathon. The session should hopefully also work quite well for those targeting half Ironman training, marathon training or the long run session if training for short distance triathlons.

The session will rotate on a weekly basis;
1. Progression run
2. Hilly run
3. Tempo run
4. Steady run
(Running order for example purposes as will aim to fit with Tues session but not duplicate.)

There will be a run leader to brief people on the content of the session each week.
Each of the session will progress. e.g the first progression run may be 4x3k, but in the 3rd cycle it could be 4x5k.

Being a longer session it will be slightly harder to keep groups together. Each session will start with a group warm up. Then specific split times will be provided based off target half marathon pace or current fitness.  It would be beneficial to bring a GPS device or at least a stopwatch to monitor your pace/targets. 

Coached Track session 10:00 - 11:00 at Litherland Sports Park. L21 7LA.  This runs from October to April. Cost is £3 .

Wirral - Mersey Tri 'Welcomed' Sessions

Tuesdays & Thursdays:
We now have an agreement with Wallasey AC that Mersey Tri members can run with their Club sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday evening.

Tuesday sessions are dedicated to Fartlek, Interval, Hill and Multi-Terrain training and are run at various paces. Thursday session is a more social event with general conditioning, circuit training or a steady tempo road run of about 6 miles.

Meet for both nights at 6:20pm for a 6:30pm start at Harrison Hall, Wallasey Village, CH45 3HP
Cost £1 a run


We also now have an agreement with Wirral AC for Mersey Tri members to run at their coached track session on a Wednesday evening.

The session begins at 6:30pm and costs £1. Meet at the metal steps on the inside of the track, next to the start line. The track itself can be accessed by the main entrance in the grandstand of the Oval Leisure Centre Running Track.

Ask for Simon Fox ( Wirral AC coach )

These sessions are demanding interval sessions ( eg 5 x 1k intervals ) and would be best suited to those with some running / triathlon background.

There are male & female changing facilities under the Grandstand
