Training for Beginners & Beyond, Sat 28th July

Training, coffee and chatter

This weekend only we are switching to Saturday to train so that those who wish to do the Brighton trailblazer on Sunday can do so. (If you have not signed up and can already run 7miles comfortably, we recommend it! It’s beautiful).

There will be a 8.6-9mile route for those training for Firle and Lake Garda 30k and marathon – or any one who would like to run in a group and do this distance. It is a hilly one with a gradual climb up from Hangleton to the Dyke before a glorious downhill section and back to Hove Park.

Here , you either have the choice of joining the Hove 5k, – or cheering on some of our new runners who will be doing this.

The beginners route is a 3-4mile route this time around Hove Park. Your choice is to either meet at 8.15am and do the route with our coach Melissa.

Alternatively, you can register for and get your first taste of a very friendly race environment by doing the parkrun at 9am. If doing this, coach Rachael will run it with you as a training run.

It is an extremely friendly format and a great way of progressing your running in a supportive environment.

After the run, we plan to have coffee at Hove park Cafe, so bring some money if you fancy hanging around for half an  hour after.
