RunVerity Development 2019

From the 15th July we will be showcasing new RunVerity sessions for a trial period of 4 weeks.  If successful we will be putting them permanently on the RunVerity timetable which is very exciting.



Tuesday 6.30pm - Whiteley

Run Leader - Deliah Downie

RV HIT (High Intensity Training) - These sessions will be a combination of short bursts of activity followed by short bursts of running.  HIT is a great way to burn calories, get faster and build strength. 

Wednesday 7pm - Fareham

Run Leader - Charlie Rourke

Fareham Hills – The hill sessions in Whiteley are a huge success so we are going to give them a go at Fareham.  These sessions will be an introduction to hills so no beasting at all. The sessions will be safe and supportive, not competitive and if you don’t want to push yourself you don’t have to. 

Wednesday 7pm - Whiteley

Coach Verity Wright

Whiteley Extension – Wednesday nights are going to be extended.  All of my training plans have a longer run in the middle of the week so it makes sense to extend Wednesday so that you have a greater opportunity to get more miles in within the group without having to run on your own before or after the session.  These sessions will not become “faster”, the format will be the same, your pace, lots of looping just a longer route.  This should benefit all of you who are in training for the Great South Run.

If you are on Bronze Membership, during the 4 week trial why don’t you try out any of our new sessions on top of your normal sessions and pay just £3 extra.

In other news…


RV 30 is a new course starting on the 16th July, a twice a weekly programme for 5 weeks with the aim to get complete beginners running continuously for 30 minutes as opposed to a 5km goal at the end of the course.  The sessions will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. 

RV60 will be the course available after RV30, another twice weekly 5 week course that will run concurrently with RV30 and focus on the progression of running for 60 mins non stop. 

On the 18th July there will be a “Women’s Health” Workshop at 8.10pm at 50 Mollison Rise. All topics open for conversation, very informal sharing of things that work or don’t work in relation to aging and running.

On the 25th July there will be a “Runner’s Workshop” at 8.10pm at 50 Mollison Rise. If you are interested in how to step up to “The Great South Run” then this workshop is for you. We will discuss the transition to increasing your mileage safely, share nutritional advice as well as looking at how we can calm any negative thoughts and turn them into positive ones.
