Achilles Heel Run Club - Glasgow
Our friendly neighbourhood running group meets at our Glasgow running store every Wednesday at 6pm / Saturday at 8.15am. Each session suits all levels, so don’t worry if you’re still getting the hang of it - we won’t leave you behind!
Head coach and store manager - Stefan, (literally) runs the groups. Stefan enjoys working on form, technique, speed and endurance which makes each session different, to make sure you get the most from it.
You’ll work on intervals, hill running, stair climbs or endurance, running-specific bodyweight exercises or a combination of different techniques. And every eight to ten weeks, we organise a timed 5k run, so you’ll be able to challenge yourself and map your progress.
