︎ 400m Track Session
The friendly session built around you.
West Coast Runners meet every Monday evening at Wavertree Athletics Track to practice together for one hour. You’re invited.
One of our captains will have planned a simple session, maybe something like 10 x 400m intervals, but it’s never anything to be intimidated by and you’re free to use the time on track however you please. We’re really ordinary runners ourselves and find that this is actually the best way of organising a group run. You can fit the session into your own ability, run each lap at your own pace, take a break when you need, miss a lap. Whatever, own it. We’re there for support and direction.
Our guarantee is that you’ll meet a community of good people, have fun and come out a better runner - regardless of your current position.
How to join ︎︎︎
For now, only indivudal bookings can be made. You can bring a friend, they just have to create an account and book their own place (annoying we know). Post-covid we hope to make a group arrangement with the track that will make this a much smoother process. So:
1. Join TRACK MONDAYS™ on Facebook
2. Create an Account with Liverpool Lifestyles
3. Book a Session

4. ARRIVE / SIGN-IN
I don’t use Facebook, how can I join?
We use the Facebook group to post updates, including session details and any cancellations or changes. We recommend joining if you can. That said, you can always follow the booking details and just turn up to a session. Old school.
Will I be racing against other people?
Absolutely NOT, unless you want to. Most sessions are about training - either to run fast intervals to improve your top speed or to plan the workouts into your own running schedule. You get to train with other people, but there’s simply no competition here.
Does it matter if I’m not very fast?
It does not matter if you do not see yourself as fast. The track democratises running so that people at all stages and abilities can train together in a social, positive environment. Pace is relative, and just as there’s always a bigger fish, there’s always an Eliud Kipchoge to keep us humble.
