G8.5+
Matt Dodds (LiRF)
If you’re running at a pace quicker than 8.5 min/mile, then this is the group for you. We run a challenging route, no hill is too steep to run up. We mainly do on road, but occasionally test ourselves off road to mix it up. The runs are usually between 6.5 and 8 miles.
G9.5

Julie Hepworth (LiRF)
 
G10
Steve Brook (LiRF)
