A Coventry Way Training Runs

For those of you whom have already kindly signed-up to join me on one of those dates either on an 'event entry only basis' or as part of the 'Get Ready for ACW Training Package!' you can now boost your training efforts with four guided, trail runs to choose from.

Each Training Run varies between 8 and 14 miles in length and is held on the A Coventry Way Challenge course. Run all four parts with me and you will have completed a round albeit at different times and on different days.

Also, many of you I am coaching are also targeting ultra runs of up to 100 miles in length this year and may also appreciate the opportunity to practice in company, with your event kit and learn to eat and drink on the go by leveraging the schedule above.

These four ACW training runs above plus The WaLK (a 20 mile trail run), The Not The Venice Marathon from Birmingham to Warwick along The Grand union Canal and the very popular and unofficial version of The Forest of Arden Trail Marathon are all good options for your spring, summer and autumn plans.

Priority for the ACW training runs up until the end of March will be given to those running ACW with me on 3 April, 30 April and 14 May as I am only able to run with one other participant. From 1 April onwards, I am aiming to run with 5 others.

You can also attend on an ad-hoc basis even if you are not a RunWithIan customer by paying between £12-65 per event.

As always, let me have your comments and questions please.
