Our main club training nights are every Tuesday and Thursday evening.

We meet 6pm at our clubhouse and usually start training around 6:15pm following club announcements. Training is usually finished by 7:30pm but occasionally overruns depending on the session.

Please note: Due to the current pandemic all running groups meet at different locations on a Tuesday session. Please check the Facebook PTH Members group or ask your group coach about the meeting point.

Tuesdays: Speedwork

Every Tuesday we have speedwork training. We head out in groups of all abilities to various areas surrounding the club to do a warm-up run followed by speedwork training. Each speedwork training session is different every week and we operate an 8 week cycle which ends with our club 5k time trial.

Starts: 6pm at Port Talbot Harriers, Fenbrook Close, Port Talbot, SA12 7PA (our clubhouse is next to Port Talbot Cricket Club within the cricket club grounds)

Thursdays: Tempo Run

Every Thursday we do an out-and-back tempo run towards either the beach or Briton Ferry. For this run the whole club runs together. We set a time (for example, 40 minutes) and you run for half the time (20 mins) then turn back to run to the starting point. You can either use this tempo run to improve your time or simply run it at your own pace.

Starts: 6pm at Port Talbot Harriers, Fenbrook Close, Port Talbot, SA12 7PA (our clubhouse is next to Port Talbot Cricket Club within the cricket club grounds)

Additional Training

Keep an eye out on our Facebook page and groupsĀ as members organise additional training runs throughout the week. This includes:

  • Trail runs along the local mountains, forests and coastline which usually take place on a Sunday morning (ranging between 9-12 miles)
  • Long distance/road run which is a steadier pace but longer run (usually between 10-20 miles) which takes place on a Sunday morning

Please be aware these runs are not definite every week. You will need to check with your group or on Facebook if anything has been arranged.

Parkrun

Parkrun is a popular 5k run organised across the world in many cities and towns every Saturday at 9am (race start). Many of our club members run Parkruns every week. Local ones include Swansea Bay Parkrun, Gnoll Parkrun, Porthcawl Parkrun, Maesteg Parkrun and Llanelli Coast Parkrun.

Keep an eye out on our Facebook groups to see who is doing a Parkrun this week.
