Training Run Group B – a taste of the Challenge – 6 miles, 12.5 miles or 18.5 miles
This Sunday there are three runs on offer!Â These are going to use a mixture of trails, paths and road with a firm eye on the upcoming Fairlands Valley Challenge! These are good training runs for those of you who are going to run any of the routes at the Challenge on 15th July.
Firstly, an early start for a 6 mile largely off road run from Watton at Stone to Stapleford and back. This follows part of the Challenge marathon route.
You will need to meet at Watton at StoneÂ ready for an 8am start!
This group will then return to Lammas Road, Watton for the main run, starting at 9:15am.Â This will cover a route of just over 12 miles following the section of the Challenge Ultra course along the back of Bennington, Clay End, Walkern and then returning along the River Beane and Aston back to Watton. This is a mixture of trails, pathways and road.
If you plan to car share across to Watton at Stone I would recommend that you use the main car park in Fairlands Valley (the one off Six Hills Way).Â You will need to meet at 7:30am to get to Watton ready for 8am or meet at 8:45am ready to get to Watton for a 9:15am start.
I have attached the mapometer routes for each of the circuits we will be using.
Early six mile run.
Later 12 mile run
As a reminder, Group B run at a long run pace between 8 min/mile and 10 min/mile.Â However, these runs have a large off road element to them so pacing may be a little slower.Â The run will be as continuous as possible with re-groupng so that the group stay together.Â Quicker runners within the gorup may get a few extra miles as a result.
