Training Runs & Seminars

Our free monthly "pop along and join in" training runs started in January 2019  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. 

Our future training dates for the  Chester Half Marathon in May 2019 are here.

Our training dates for the MBNA Chester Marathon & Metric Marathon are:

Sunday 9th June - training run*

Sunday 7th July - Seminar & training run*

Sunday 4th August - training run*

Sunday 1st September - training run*

Sunday 29th September - Seminar & training run*

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 and 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.

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.

*distances will be announced in May 2019.
