Sundays - Long Runs
This group is for runners training for longer distances. Mileage is usually between 10-15 miles at 8:00 - 8:30 minutes/mile pace, but distance may increase when building up for longer races. At these times the usual plan is to add in optional extensions of 2-5 miles after the main run.
Sundays in November er 2017:
There are currently no leaders available again until the 19th or the 26th of November.
Meet at Richmond Park Kingston Gate Car Park at 8.30am. On occasion other locations may be suggested (such as Box Hill!), so please keep an eye on the latest schedule below. For more info, please speak to me at most Thursday main club nights or email (Phil Davies).
The run leaders may not always be available due to racing commitments. Please check with Phil Davies email to check that the long run is taking place, if there is no note above for the next Sunday.
