Another great day on @Chelt52! Lots of tweets today, all of which will be entered in to the draw for a Science in Sport Endurance Pack. As the weekend and Cheltenham Half Marathon get closer there will be lots of information coming your way. If you have any questions about the race or running then get in touch, I’d love to hear from you!
Club of the Day
Cheltenham Harriers, based at the town’s athletics hub The Prince of Wales Stadium, are a competitive club covering all athletics disciplines, including distance running.
They offer a ladies beginner group on Monday at 6.45pm & also offer kids an introduction to athletics and running. For adult runners with a 5km race time of under 19m30s training is every Tuesday & Thursday at 6.45pm. These guys are seriously quick so maybe not one for social runners but if you want to improve go see them!
Race of the Day
The Guy Fawkes 5 is a lovely short race on quiet country roads outside Tewkesbury.
Taking place in early November (obviously!), if you started running TOMORROW you could be race ready for this one and get your first medal. You can find a terrific programme here to get you started or go to one of the clubs I’ve listed this week with a beginners group (Almost Athletes would be my suggestion but I am biased!)
It’s also great to support the small local races.The running community is a great one to be involved in! To get more info and enter online at here.
Will I see you on the start line?!?
Route of the Day
With only a few days to go, it’s time to look at the route of the weekend’s big race, Cheltenham Half Marathon.
It’s a great 13.1 miles around the town following the wide leafy roads and taking in such highlights as the Promenade and a loop of Cheltenham Racecourse, normally reserved for 4 legged runners! There’s lots of opportunity for spectators to line the course, so I hope thousands of you turn out!
Where are you going to be watching the race from???
