Training Runs & Seminars

Well done to all who joined us on Sunday 1st September for our longest training run of the year. You were all brilliant!  

On Sunday 29th September we've got 2 events to finish off our training sessions for the 2019 MBNA Chester Marathon & Metric Marathon:
9am training run of 10 miles for all runners
7pm "One week to go" webinar.  We've listened to your comments and instead of our "One week to go" seminar at the training run, you can join in our webinar on Facebook live at 7pm.

For the training runs, we meet at 9am at Chester FC's Deva Stadium, CH1 4LT and run along the traffic free river path. 

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.

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

On 12th August, we had an online question & answer session about 'Achieving Your Marathon Goals' with Dave Taylor, our official Coach and Chris Hulse, Joint Race Organiser. Following an introduction, we took questions directly from our followers on social media. The video includes lots of helpful advice and you can watch it below.

At our training run on 7th July we had a "13 weeks to go" seminar. If you didn't make it to the seminar or would like to revisit it, you can watch it here

Our suggested schedules for 2019, which tie into our training runs, are:
