Sunday 6th January 2019
Sunday 3rd February 2019
Sunday 3rd March 2019
Sunday 7th April 2019
Sunday 5th May 2019
June to October 2019 - dates will be published soon.

Further details to follow.

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.

"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.
