Mark from Katie Copeland Physiotherapy joined us at our February seminar and you can read his notes about stretching, etc here.

 Our 2017 upcoming training run and seminar dates are:

Sunday 2nd April
9am Training run - 9 miles for slower runners and 10 miles for intermediate and faster runners.

Sunday 7th May  
9am "Two weeks to go" seminar.
10am 12 miles for all runners.

For the June to October 2017 dates please click here.

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.    

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!
