How fast can you run?

Monday club night sessions aren't just about maps and orienteering they can also include fitness and running training for those wanting to improve those aspects.  Lead coach Steve McLean is also Chairman of Southport Waterloo Athletic Club and frequently competes in road, cross country, track and fell races.  Today he was at a track meeting in Blackpool racing over 800m and 1500m.  His times of 2 minutes 20.1 seconds and 4:59.2 weren't bad given his age and without specific training but he'll hope to better these during the summer. Whether you can beat Steve or take minutes longer you can improve your fitness or show how fit you are by joining the fun 6-7.30pm each Monday evening at Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre.
