Boston Training Runs

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.

NOTE THAT THE FEBRUARY 15 DATE IS OPEN. If you are interested in hosting this run from your house, contact Mike McCormick at mamcc12@gmail.com for details.

Boston Training Run 2015

Boston Training Run 2015

The fourth WCRC Boston training run will be held on Sunday February 1 (GO PATS!!!) at the Port Tavern, 84 State St. Newburyport, MA, hosted by Tom Galvin. RSVP to Tom at tomglvn@gmail.com  so he has an approximate head count for planning purposes. Pizza and some other hot food items will be provided. Consider bringing something to pitch in to the post run refueling.

The run will start at 9:00 AM on Sunday February 1. The Port Tavern will open its doors to runners at 8:30 AM, and coffee and bagels will be available right before the run. Post race food will be in the private upstairs room. Beer will be available post race downstairs at the tavern if desired (normal cash bar).

The mapped route is 17 miles. The first half is on route 1A headed from Newburyport to Rowley, so the easiest option for shorter runs is to time an out and back run on 1A. Otherwise you can use the map to find alternate shorter routes.

Course Map for 17 Miles   Consult the map for possibilities for longer or shorter.

RSVP to Tom at tomglvn@gmail.com.
