Boston Training Long Runs

Seven 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.

Seven dates – every other week through winter. Each host, at their discretion, can choose to host their run on Saturday or Sunday. The days and dates will be adjusted accordingly and posted here as each hosted run approaches. All times are 9:00 a.m., the historical choice to start each run. Times are also subject to change at the discretion of each host.

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. Contact info will be posted prior to each run.

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.

There is no hosted run scheduled for 3/23/24.
