We will forgo the hills this week so that it is suitable for all, including those who have been on holiday over the last two weeks and may have slipped behind on their training plan (I know, very unlikely. Ahem).
If you are up to date on your plan, then in place of hills focus on pace throughout this run.
We will be offering the following distances in accordance with the training plans for races that we are currently working toward.
12miles for the Lake Garda 30k
5 – 8 miles for the Firle Half Marathon, and Garda 15k crew
3 miles for the beginners to Rise 8k
The route is straightforward, out and back along the River Adur starting at Shoreham by Sea, and running along the tow path past the colourful Shoreham houseboats to start.
It means that should you wish to run further – or less – there is the option to do so (although please note that unless you are used to running DON’T increase your mileage beyond your training plan or you risk injury).
In the middle distance group in particular, you will be required to buddy up so that if you are returning before the 4mile turn point (for 8miles) you are running back with someone.
PLEASE COMMENT HERE IF YOU ARE COMING AND WHICH DISTANCE YOU PLAN ON. THIS IS VITAL AS IT ENABLES US TO PLAN ACCORDINGLY FOR THE RUN.
ALSO COMMENT IF YOU NEED A LIFT AS SOMEONE WILL BE ABLE TO PICK YOU UP AND DROP YOU OFF.
Location: Meet car park at Shoreham By Sea just off Riverside, link here. It is free before 9am, thereafter fairly cheap
