Training session

Highwoods 5k, core and stretch

Another month or so until Parkrun so lets be ready for a PB

Sorry, the deadline to sign up has passed.


Highwoods has perfect multi-terrain - concrete paths, forest paths, grassland paths both flat and hilly! The Parkrun route is neatly signposted.

We will meet at the top of the hill where Parkrun starts and finishes then we will warm up, run 5 k, complete some core or strength work (if you do not want to get wet and muddy there will be alternatives) and finish with a stretch looking out at the view of Colchester.

We will probably keep an eye out for the odd Muntjac and Woodpecker too!

Also October see's the Goodgym Virtual 5k with a medal on offer!!! sign up here:
