Eight runs of increasing distance will be held at 2 week intervals, spanning the Boston training timeframe. To make sure you don’t get bored, each run will be hosted by different WCRC members at different locations in the WCRC kingdom (MA, NH, ME). All WCRC members are invited to participate, whether or not you are running Boston. Shorter courses will also be designed for each session for those not interested in marathon distances.
If you are interested in hosting a run from your house, contact Mike McCormick at email@example.com for details. The chart below shows the open dates.
All WCRC members welcome – even if you’re not running Boston.
Eight dates – every other week through winter.
Dates and recommended distances for Boston build-up:
|December 21||10-12||Mike McCormick / WCRC||Winner’s Circle Sports Bar, 211 Elm Street, Salisbury MAfirstname.lastname@example.org|
|January 5||12-14||Kathy McWilliams and Brian Amero||Amesbury, MA|
|January 19||14-16||Matt Cirinna and Abby Jackson||Dover, NH|
|March 2||18-20||Bruce and Lori Lander
|March 16||18-20||Kate Muskrat||Newton, NH|
If you intend to participate on a specific date, please contact the host during the week before so that they can get a rough head count for planning purposes.
The pace will vary with ability. Runs set up for training, not racing. Hopefully we will have a good idea of who will be coming and intended paces so everyone has someone to run with the whole way.
The first WCRC Boston Training Long Run will be at the Winner’s Circle Sports Bar in Salisbury, MA on Saturday, December 21 starting at 9:30 AM (note the slightly later start time, since we’ll all be staying up late that night at the WCRC Christmas Party). Since it is being organized from the Winner’s Circle, please consider bringing something to contribute to the post-race replenishment. The course is only 10-12 miles, so a major feast is not needed.
If you plan on participating on the 21st, please RSVP to help Mike plan at email@example.com.
