Training Runs & Seminars

Our free monthly "pop along and join in" training runs will start in January 2019  to prepare for the Essar Chester 2019 Half Marathon in May, continuing to the MBNA Chester Marathon & Metric Marathon in October.

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.  You can see our Pace Team for the 2018 half marathon here.

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

We meet at Total Fitness*, Liverpool Road, Chester CH2 1AQ ready to start at 9am.  We run out and back along the traffic-free Chester Millennium Greenway so there are no worries about traffic or getting lost and it makes it easy for you to do more or less than the planned distance if you prefer. 

After running we meet up again in the cafe for a drink and one of Elaine's famous flapjacks. 

"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 Half Marathon, the MBNA Chester Marathon and Metric Marathon" reflected Race Organiser Chris Hulse.

Look forward to seeing you there!

*Parking restrictions apply.  Please ensure that you enter your car registration number at reception, allowing you to park for 3 hours.
