Meet at the Y Club reception at 6:30pm. We’ll do a warm-up in the Castlefield Arena and then head up the Rochdale canal until the Gay Village. We then head up to Jutland Street to tackle the steepest street in Manchester, before heading onto the Ashton Canal all the way up to the Etihad Campus. There is the option to turn back here, or you can tack an extra couple of miles on (and a little bit more climbing) by staying on the canal and heading up to the Strawberry Duck pub. Re-trace your steps to head back to the Y Club.

Meet at the Y Club reception at 6:30pm. After a warm-up in the Castlefield Arena, we’ll head down the Bridgewater Canal as far as the Watch House Cruising Club (a.k.a. “The White House”); we’ll then turn off the canal and head across the Turn Moss playing fields to Longford Park, through Longford Park and then back to the Y Club past Old Trafford cricket ground and Chester Road. A shorter route option is available by doing an “out-and-back” run down the canal; if you turn back at Throstle’s Nest it is a 5km run, turning back at “the stone bridge” makes for a 10km run.

Route map preview for Hill repeats

It’s the first Thursday of the month, so that means it’s… hill repeats! We’ll meet at the Y Club reception at 6:30pm. It’s a ten-minute jog to our hill by Salford University at Peel Park. The main session is to run up the hill hard and then jog or walk back down the hill to recover, repeat up to 12 times. We normally split into two groups after the main session, depending on how people are feeling: one group heads back to the Y Club the short way (about 1 mile), the other takes an extended route back (2 miles or so).

Join us for a drink and a bite to eat after the session - you’ll have earned it!
