Training Runs & Seminars

Our free monthly "pop along and join in" training runs start in January to prepare for the Aldi Chester 10K in March, the Essar Chester Half Marathon in May and the MBNA Chester Marathon & Metric Marathon in October.

Thanks to all those of you who joined us for our 2019 half marathon training runs and seminars and thanks also to Chester FC for hosting us.

Our suggested training plans for the 2019 half marathon are:
Novice
Improver
Advanced

Training runs continue in June 2019 for the MBNA Chester Marathon & Metric Marathon in October.

Training runs for our 2020 races will start in January 2020 and the dates will be announced towards the end of this year. 

If you've not joined us at one of our training runs before, don't be shy, everyone is welcome.  We're a friendly bunch and will have a number of pace runner led groups, running at various paces from 7:30 minutes to 11 minutes per mile.  Many of the groups are led by the Pace Runners from our events. 

Please run with something showing your name, an emergency number and any medical conditions we may need to be aware of. If you've got a  parkrun barcode that would be ideal, but anything we are able to read will be fine. 

Due to the out and back nature of the route we are unable to allow dogs at the training runs.

These runs give you the opportunity to run with others and chat about their training, gaining valuable advice, tips and encouragement.

"From the feedback we get these training runs are providing a valuable opportunity for many people who normally train on their own to mix with others on the same journey to the Chester 10K,  Half Marathon, the MBNA Chester Marathon and Metric Marathon" reflected Race Organiser Chris Hulse.
