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.
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 below for the next Sunday.
Sunday 24 September:
I will be running from Kingston Gate car park this Sunday at 8:30. Approx 10 mile jaunt over to Wimbledon Common and back through Richmond Park following as many trails as possible.
29 October 2017: River Thames Half Marathon: If you are free that day, please offer Roy your services as a marshal.
12 August 2018: Sierre-Zinal 31km Mountain race: Check out the August Stragmag for a report by Jim Desmond, who ran this year's race. The website is http://www.sierre-zinal.com/
and a youtube clip to prove that mere mortals can complete this tough but very scenic route can be seen by the following link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8jmHqK_wfk
Please let me know if there are any events, especially off road, hilly ones, not listed above, that you have entered, or are interested in.
The rutting season is upon us so please be careful if running in any of the local Royal Parks.
Have a great weekend and good luck if you are running in any races over the next few weeks.
