Marathon Prep Run 2017
Sun, April 2, 2017, 8:45 AM – 3:00 PM BST
Are you are preparing to run a spring marathon in London, Paris, Rotterdam, Zurich, Hamburg, Madrid or Boston? If so, you should be thinking about a training run.
Many coaches and training programs recommend that you participate in a few races before the actual Marathon. Races are often a good way to do long runs on a measured course. This can be key preparation to make you feel comfortable in a race situation - be it running with a crowd, fetching water from a water table or learning to pace yourself in a competitive environment.
The 20 mile race has been specifically organised as a marathon preparation race. It will be chip timed so that you can have an accurate indication of your marathon race pace. Marathon pace start waves will ensure you are running around people aiming for the same pace on marathon day. Pacers within those waves will help you to maintain that pace for the full 20 miles. Entrants have the option to run 16, 20 miles. (People with faster times also have the option to run 24 miles)
