SYO circuits continue each Thursday at 7pm. Click here for the link and use passcode 1968. The sessions are suitable for all. We did look at moving this earlier but as some of our key workers needed it to stay at 7pm, we are leaving the session where it is.
There is also a junior circuit session lasting approx. 40 mins every Monday. Click here for the link and enter passcode 572194.
Both sessions are designed specifically to develop the core strength of runners.
