What is Wynfit

Wynfit is a running group bought together by experienced runner and coach Mark Maloney. After many decades of running Mark knows the benefits of committing to training with a group.

When you train in a group you tend to push yourself a little harder because you are running with like minded people.

You make friends and look forward to coming for a run, in just a few months Wynfit has become a community and a fun place to be as well as train.

You train with structured interval training and unlike going out for a few Kms on your own in the streets, the intervals take you to a new level. This is not to say your solo runs in the street are not important, the opposite is true these runs are crucial to a balanced training program.

If you want to improve your running at any level whether it's just to run Parkrun all the way or to smash your marathon PB you should become Wynfit.
