Sierra Leone Marathon 2014

The second Street Child Running Club session: Sunday 4 March

To all future marathon runners (or those who just want to get fit!), 


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. 

See:   http://www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/richmond_park/facilities.cfm.


This session will cover a 7.5 mile lap with an increase in distance every subsequent run, culminating in approx 20 miles on May 6th


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 matt.pain1@hotmail.co.uk.


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'. Enjoy!


Best wishes,
