To all future marathon runners (or those who just want to get
There will be 4 official training runs for the Sierra Leone
marathon from February to May:
- 5 Feb
- 4 March
- 31 March
- 6 May
These sessions will start at 10:00AM from the Roehampton
Gate cafe in Richmond Park. See:
The first one will be a 7.5 mile lap with an increase in
distance every subsequent run, culminating in approx 20 miles on
The pace will not be frenetic but based on approximately a 4
hour marathon. After each run we hope people can stay around
afterwards for bacon sandwiches, a coffee and a chat. This will be
an opportunity to discuss the marathon, Sierra Leone, the charity
and life in general and perhaps arrange other training sessions in
between the monthly runs.
We would be grateful if you could let us know whether you will
be attending each run the week before just so we have an idea of
numbers and don't start without anyone if we can help it. Please
RSVP to email@example.com.
There will be a stand in place with a Street Child banner which
will show where we are starting. We will do our best to arrange a
half marathon training run as well on each of these dates; this
just depends on the amount of people available to lead a group.
So, we look forward to seeing you on Feb 5th or any
of the other runs. Please remember there are also the marathon
schedules on the website from sub 3hrs to 'get you round'.
