The Newcastle Flyers squad trains every Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime at the Number 1 Sports Ground, with recovery runs often organised on the other weekdays, and a long run on Sunday from Merewether Baths.
There are over 100 runners that get the regular emails, and session numbers vary depending on people's training program. There is generally around 5-10 on most Tuesdays and Thursdays, with a range of abilities. We have 33 minute 10km runners up to 1 hour 10km runners, with most runners seeing significant improvements in their PBs within months.
