Drop In Sessions

When you want a coach-lead group training session for that extra motivation within your own training

Drop In Sessions - use the Extra Mile Runners sessions for your
key training sessions

Does this sound familiar?

  • You lack motivation to do the more challenging training sessions on your own

  • You run at the same pace all the time and wonder why you aren't improving

  • You feel lost with your technique

  • You feel you need advice around your running

  • You would like to train with a group sometimes for extra motivation

  • You set goals but you don't do the right preparation and training to achieve them

'Most runners get slower over time because they don't do the key sessions that create improvement' - Coach Bevan  

Extra Mile Runners Drop In Sessions will help you nail your key training objectives

Successful runners include these sessions into their training

Great running programmes have different sessions with different training objectives to create success, these include: 

Endurance Sessions

Your longer runs that build your endurance

Pace Tempo Sessions

Your middle distance/timed runs with mid to high intensity pace work

High Intensity Intervals

Your high intensity intervals with max effort

Strength Sessions

Your strength based sessions

The benefits are huge

If you want to become a better runner, to be fitter, faster and stronger you need to successfully hit the objectives of each of these sessions

How our Drop In Sessions create success 

There are 3 key factors which will help you achieve your objectives within your challenging training sessions through our Drop In Sessions:

  • Having coaches at every session: You will get feedback on your running (including your technique) and you will be guided through the session as well as providing tips and motivation to achieve the session objectives. 

  • A group of people to train with: We all know that we train better when we have a group of people to train with, there's the motivation that comes with it but it also makes it more fun and social!

  • Set training focuses for every session: All of our Drop In sessions have set training focuses which are based around one of these objectives: Endurance, Tempo Running, High Intensity Intervals, or Strength work.

How do the sessions work?


We always start on time. Please arrive at the session 10mins prior to the start time and "check in" with the coach taking the Members Roll Call. The Head Coach does a session briefing and you then we get started.

The different sessions have different objectives: Pace Session: Working to different paces within the session (5km, 10km half marathon pace)
Track Session: Interval training
Strength/Repeat Session: Combination of strength work and short interval running
Endurance Run: Longer run for building time on feet

The easiest and quickest payment method is via creditcard or debit card.




Why do we do strength work in a running programme?


Throughout the years of Extra Mile Runners we do see injuries occurring with runners and often they are the same injuries. The main cause of these common injuries is weakness in other areas of the body which causes another area to over-compensate to help the weakness out..which leads to injury. All runners need to do strength work for the right areas we use for running to help reduce the risk of injury. Often, we know we need to do strength work but it gets forgotten about - until we get injured!




What do I need to bring to the sessions?


You need to bring water, a watch (GPS ideally), good running gear appropriate for the conditions and of course - good running shoes! It's a good idea to check the weather forecast the day before the run to make sure you bring the appropriate clothing. Sunscreen, hats and warm clothes are essential - as we all know, our weather can be unpredictable at times. Please don't bring your fur babies or children to the sessions in the interest of our other runners, the footpaths can get busy and we need to put safety first!




What is your refund policy?


The Drop In sessions are non-refundable and non-transferable. But you do have 4 weeks to use it from the date of puchase.




Is there anyone I can talk to about this?


If you want us to give you a call, email us with you details and we'll be in contact in the next 24 hours.
You can also text Bevan on 021 869 086 and he will call you back.




How long is my Drop In session valid for?


Your Drop In session is valid for 1 month from the date of purhcase. You can use this session at any Extra Mile Runners sessions. You must book into your session via the Extra Mile Runners booking site. Details of this will be sent to you one you have purhcased your session.




What sessions can I come to with a Drop In Session pass?


The sessions valid for a Drop In Pass are the sessions based around our Club10k and RaceTeam programmes. Unfortunately our Get up to Five sessions are not available for Drop In passes - as our beginner running programme we feel it is important to get our beginner runners doing Get up to Five running safely and confidently within their own team environment.
