This Sunday 4 March is the second session
of the Street Child Running Club.
Future sessions will be:
- Saturday 31 March
- Sunday 6 May
These sessions will start at 10:00AM from the
Roehampton Gate cafe in Richmond Park.
This session will cover 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 Sunday March 4 or any
of the other runs. Please remember there are also the marathon
schedules on the website from sub 3hrs to 'get you round'.
