Running a marathon in the spring? Looking for that extra help with your training?
Then why not join Gade Valley Harriers as they host their ever popular Marathon Training Runs.
These are not races and therefore have no chip timings or medals, so please record your own times, if required. However, the runs are fully marshalled with water stops and our famous jelly baby stops.
The routes all start and finish at Boxmoor Cricket Club, Hemel Hempstead. The courses are mainly along quiet country roads and go through the stunning Ashridge Forest, with a small section on the towpath of the Grand Union Canal. No need to register in advance, just sign up on the day.
All this for only £5.
Mass start is at 09:30, but runners who expect to run at 12 min/mile or slower are welcome to join an earlier start at 09:00.
