RUNNING SCHOOLS

We have 3 running schools as detailed hereunder.

Having 3 schools allows runners to “mix and match” during a training week depending on individual fitness and goals.

All running Schools train Tuesdays to Fridays at 05h00 with training accordingly to the Coach’s structured program with quality sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Wednesday runs are recovery runs and then longer runs (15km plus) during our Comrades build up. Fridays are easy runs.

Saturday runs start at 06h00 in the months of August till end of May and 07h00 in June and July – distances are 15 to 20km with post run refreshments in our Barry Holland Room.

Sunday longer runs will always be advertised separately for ALL schools and these will start at 06h00 for runs up to 3 hours and 05h00 for runs above 3 hours.

 

A School – Captain Gary Smith

Training pace 4 to 5 mins/km.

This school is suitable to runners with Comrades times / goals 7hrs to 8hrs 30 minutes and a marathon time of around 3h10 / 15 minutes.

Lemmings School  – Captain Neil Miller and Vice Jimmy Matthews

Why the name “Lemmings”?? this comes from the mid 90’s when many A runners were not keeping up with the faster guys but were too fast for the B runners and so the “Lemmings” or Middle School was born based on the legend of the “Lemmings” running off cliffs! (Chasing the A’s).

This school is suitable to runners with Comrades times / goals 8h30m to 10h00 and a marathon time of around 3h20 to 4h00.

B School – Captain Shaun Lambson and Vice Natalie Zeid

The tradition of the B School is to always turn around at the “drinks” point to go back and “fetch” any slower runners – no runner gets left behind!

Training Pace is  6 – 7 mins / km. This School is suitable to runners with Comrades times / goals 10h00 to 12h00 and a marathon time of around 4h00 to 5h00.

Triathlon Schools

We have two triathlon training groups – the A Group led by Alan and Graeme Carrington and the Tri Bees by Bryan and Julia Webster.

Run Training is done with the running Schools on any week days you choose and Saturdays for a longer run.

Bike Training during the week is done indoors (home trainers/ spin classes / whatt bikes).

Sundays are for longer bike rides from 2 to 5 hours with start time dependent on the distance but usually between 05h30 and 07h00.

Ride details are communicated on the Tri Bees Whatsapp group each week.

Swim Training is mainly done individually during the week and in summer both groups aim to do Open Water swims on Saturday afternoons.

Complete novice triathletes wishing to do their first ever triathlon are encouraged to join the Coach’s Dare To Tri (DTT) Group – Contact Derick on derickm@gridmetals.com
