Tim Lloydlangston will be running a series of training runs again this year - starting at 10 miles and getting a mile longer each week (with 4th Feb off as it's the Stagger). All routes are off road, so trail shoes are recommended (though not essential). Pace will be about 10-11 min per mile, and there are cut-offs should you wish to do a shorter distance. Start at 08.30 from the main gates in Mary Stevens Park.
