Paddington track (foundation)

We organise this foundation track session for Serpentine adults on Monday evenings at Paddington Track.

These sessions are aimed at those who are new to structured interval training and want to improve their speed and endurance. They’re designed for foundation level runners who can comfortably run for 30 minutes (e.g. 2 parks) and would expect to take more than 48 minutes to run a 10k. As well as interval training on the track, sessions will also include running drills and some strength exercises designed to improve your running.

By coming to these sessions you will be able to:

  • get comfortable training on an athletics track
  • improve your pacing
  • develop different running speeds
  • improve your running form, strength and mobility.
  • Is there a fee?

    No. Bags can be left trackside (no valuables please) with us, or lockers (if you have valuables) are located by reception which require a returnable £1 coin, or a token which also costs £1.

  • Can I shower afterwards?

    Showers and changing rooms cost £3.15 (as of February 2023 and subject to change from time to time) payable at reception.
