MIDDLE & LONG
Sale Harriers Manchester is one of the foremost athletics clubs
in the country, boasting an ever-present record in all League
competitions. Most of our locally based middle & long distance
athletes who represent the club in these leagues train from
where training is done for track & field, road,
cross-country, trail and fell racing. These athletes are
often joined by athletes from some of the other regions clubs thus
offering quality training sessions.
The main group is supervised by the club's nationally acclaimed
endurance coach, Norman Poole, who coaches Senior and Under 20 Men
and Women, along with John Davies, David Rodgers and Ann
Paul Roden coaches the Under 20 and Young Athlete Men, whilst
Peter Shaw and Lisa Davies coach Under 20 and Young Athlete

Summer training sessions are on Mondays & Wednesdays at
7.00pm and Saturdays at 10.30am. Some of these sessions are on
grass at the nearby University fields. During winter months, the
Monday session takes place on road at Sportscity and Saturdays
could be on grass at the University fields or on hills in Heaton
Park. These runners also go in small groups on trail and hill runs
on Sunday mornings from various venues.
All athletes start the first of reps together, then split into
two or three groups for subsequent reps according to ability, with
shorter recoveries for the faster groups.
The volumes of training are recommended levels for fit senior
athletes and regular racers. Younger and less fit athletes will be
advised by the coaches prior to training.
In the relevant racing periods there will be smaller groups
split, running their event specific sessions, whether it be 800
metres or Marathon etc.
