Boston Training Long Runs

Boston Training Run in Merrimack 2102

Boston Training Run in Merrimack 2102

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 mamcc12@gmail.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.

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 (10-12 miles) will be at the Winner’s Circle Sports Bar in Salisbury, MA on Saturday, December 20 starting at 9:30 AM, hosted by WCRC (note the slightly later start time, since we’ll all be staying up that night at the WCRC Christmas Party). If you plan on participating, please contact Mike McCormick at mamcc12@gmail.com to assist in planning. Also, please consider bringing a post-run snack to share.
