Sundays - Long Runs
This group is for runners training for longer distances. Mileage is usually between 10-15 miles at 8:00 - 8:15 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.
Has anyone else set themselves a marathon or Ultra target and wishing for company on their long training weekend runs?
This Sunday: Sorry but I will not be leading a group from Kingston Gate.
Unless otherwise stated, all Sunday Long Runs will start from Kingston Gate car park in Richmond Park at 8:30am. The average pace will be between 8:00-8:30 mins per mile depending on the terrain. The routes will be partially off road, if the surface underfoot is not to wet and muddy, but trail shoes will not be required unless I specifically mention them.
29th: Leatherhead Rotary Club, Bluebell 10km trail race. This year is their 10th anniversary so it should be a good one.
6th: Ranelagh Half Marathon (Surrey League): A great event. A fast, flat course with many local club runners, some friends and some foe.
19th-20th: Green Belt Relay. If you are not keen on running two consecutive days of competitive races, please offer to help the organisers.
Good luck if you are running any races this weekend.
Keep safe, injury free and I hope that you can join me/us occasionally.
