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.
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.
More information, including course maps, to be posted on this page before each training run.
