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. Follow the link for more information on dates and locations.
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 final WCRC Boston Training Long Run will be in Exeter, NH on Sunday, March 24 starting at 8:30AM (note the slightly earlier start time). The mapped route is a 20.2 mile loop, and when you look at the map you will see that there are a number of opportunities to shorten the loop. For those wanting more than 20, you will also see on the map a variety of opportunities to add on. And of course, you can reverse course at any desired distance for an out-and-back. Water stops will be located on the course. The run will be hosted by Julie Benson at 2 Thelma Drive, Exeter NH. Consider bringing something to share for the post run renewal!
