Thanks HH, I had never thought of having a club run as part of a larger club! That would be fine by me, as I'm not bothered about actually starting a whole new club, just trying to get more people to run with in the area!
My boyfriend lives in Herne Hill - I had no idea they had a running club actually!
Although I would never claim to be a good runner myself, I'm thinking about trying to set up a running club in Balham. There are so many runners in my area, but the nearest club is the Clapham Chasers, which meet in Battersea. I am sure there are lots of runners much closer by who would be willing to stay more local!
I wouldn't expect to be the leader of the pack, but sometimes someone just needs to get the ball rolling, right? I had a quck look online but could only find things relevant for the US.
Does anyone have any advice or tips? Would I need to make sure any club was insured straight off the bat? I'd be grateful to hear of any experience any of you have in this!
I have a question...so far the longest run I have done is 10 miles. Next weekend I am doing the Endurance Life half marathon on the cliffs of South Devon (I did it last year and loved it but was much fitter then, hmmm).
I am just wondering, if I keep up the long runs and cross train, is there any chance I could still do the marathon, or would I just be massively underprepared? (for the Brighton Mara)
My problem has been I have been running alot, but shorter distances.
