New to running?
Maybe you have never run, or want to move on from the treadmill but are not confident about running outside alone? Or maybe you want a new challenge?
Then, why not try a LUNCH TIME MARATHON.
Dont worry... it's not a whole marathon in one lunchtime!
Join this free running group and let’s improve together.
The idea behind LUNCH TIME MARATHON is, that over the course of 12 weeks, a group of people that are new, or returning to running, cover the marathon distance of 26 miles and 385 yards - but in easy, manageable stages.
Each run will last about 30 minutes and over the weeks as confidence, experience and fitness builds, the group will naturally get a little faster with less time walking and catching its' breath. Result: After 12 weekly sessions everyone should have achieved their personal 'marathon'.
- This programme starts on Thursday 31st October.
- Meeting Point Loftus Hill car park
- Time: 12:15.
There will be 6 weekly meets before Christmas with 6 to be scheduled for after the new year.
Going for a jog/run is a great way to meet new people, tone up, lose weight and get all the wellbeing benefits from being in the outdoors - whatever the weather.
At the end of each session, I will e-mail or text you the distance and time of that run, for your records.
RUN 1: 31/10/19 - 2.93km; 19.45 minutes
RUN 2: 07/11/19 - tba
RUN 3: 15/11/19 (please note this is a Friday run) - tba
RUN 4: 21/11/19 - tba
I have experience of organising similar running groups and a group that first met up in November 2013 progressed from an initial run of less than 3k. From slow beginings the group improved and they went on to participate and complete a 10k charity run.
To ensure I can keep an eye on everyone, the group will be limited to a maximum of 8 participants.
Please contact me to register your interest:
As run leader I will be carrying a mobile phone and a basic first aid kit. Runs are at a gentle to moderate pace and will start at a time around 30minutes, including warm up and cool down/stretching. The run will depend on the experience and fitness of the participants.
