F&Q:

I want to register two places on the course?
Both people need to register in their own name, so we know who we have on our courses

Where and when are we meeting?
Tuesday interval sessions will be held at Willen Lake, North carpark, starting at 6pm.

Sunday group runs will start from various locations around Milton Keynes, starting at 9am. Sessions are likely to include some trail running as well as running on Redways.

You will be notified in advance of changes to the scheduled group session day.

How far will I have to run?
The sessions are usually measured over time rather than distance and the sessions length shall change as the weeks progress. You will always be given notice of the change in sessions.

How far should I be able to run at the start of the course?
You will need to be able to run the half marathon distance at the start of this course.

You will work at your own pace and we shall be building up the distance. All runs will operate with a loop-back process so nobody will be left behind. The only pace requirement is imposed by the 15 minute mile from most marathon events.

Please note that there should be no medical reason which would make running dangerous for you and if in doubt please ask your GP before attending.

What is involved in the course?
The course will be introducing running skills through Interval, Hill and Fartlek sessions, through supported weekly coached sessions, as well as developing running endurance through Sunday group running sessions.

What do I need?
A pair of running trainers, some comfortable running clothing and a drink. If the weather is bad you will need appropriate clothing to keep you warm/dry and for sessions held in the dark then a head torch or similar.
