Training Sessions

There are training runs most days from either the clubhouse or Walthamstow Pool and Track to cater for all members. As well as the times below, additional training runs are often arranged on an ad hoc basis each week so if you want to run at a different time – just ask!

‘For any newcomers,we are happy for you to join a training group for a couple of taster sessions to see if this is for you, after which we would kindly ask you to join Orion Harriers as a member.’

Injury and Illness

If you have a pre-existing medical condition or any concerns about your health, the club suggests that you consult your GP before taking up running. If you become ill, it is advisable to take a cautious approach to training and either refrain totally or reduce the intensity of your training depending on the severity of your illness. You should always ensure you have recovered from illness before returning to full training.

Injuries are an inevitable part of running. It is advisable not to continue running after an injury has been sustained and you should seek professional advice. Club committee and other members have used many local physiotherapists and are happy to advise other club members. There are currently sessions available with a local physiotherapist on Tuesday evenings at pool and track.
