The River Run, Sun Sept 23


the houseboast of Shoreham,

Whether you are a regular runner, or one that has just started out with us, this week’s route is a great one for all.

A good introduction to off-road running for those doing the shorter distance (4.5miles) it is flat, going past the characterful houseboats of Shoreham and going out along the River Adur where your feet and ankles will get  used to running on uneven terrain without hills.

Don’t want to run 4.5miles? No problem because on this run you can just turn back and follow the river back to the start (making sure you let one of our Run Ambassadors know you are returning earlier).

For our runners training for Lake Garda, it is now three weeks until race day and just two weeks for our runners training for the Rise 8k.

Garda training groups can choose between 8 miles (15k girls) and 17 miles (27.5kms) as per the training plan for those running 30k in Italy. Those who are training for 15k who want to go longer let us know and we can add on 1 or two miles extra.

For those going long, our terrain will vary with a few hills as we leave the river and head into the country, before dropping down through Lancing to the seafront and back to Shoreham, allowing us to pick up our feet and power back to base for a final lap around Shoreham to the finish.

Last week, we  had fields of cows, rivers full of swans and blackberry bushes galore. What will it be this time?!

Come and get your usual Sunday endorphins this weekend!
