We now have two free group training sessions per week.

Every Wednesday Annie Braddon hosts a speed session for beginners, those who are coming back from injury, or those just new to speed workouts. These groups go for one hour, and start at 5.30am at the Uni Loop on the corner of Jerningham St and Mackinnon Parade, North Adelaide. There’s no need to register, just turn up!

We also have a one-hour Friday morning speed session at the Uni Loop, starting at 5.30am sharp at the same spot as above. The group is for anyone from the newest to the fastest, is fun to be a part of, and we handicap the intervals to ensure everyone feels included.
