Half-Marathon Training - Sunday 9th March
Mar 8, 2014, 12:22 pm

Sunday 9th March is the last of the Fleet Half-marathon training opportunities. Having had the longest run last week, we finish with a taper run of 8 miles. The 8-mile road route will be the same as before but there will be an alternative easy off-road route for those who prefer it. If you have enjoyed the experience of running with our club, you are welcome to become a member and continue to enjoy our regular training sessions.

Half-Marathon Training Routes for Sunday 2nd March
Feb 25, 2014, 2:27 pm

With 2 weeks to go, Sunday 2nd March is the longest of the training runs before tapering down. We have organised 3 on-road routes - all of which follow most of the HM route - to cater for beginners, improvers and experienced runners. All routes are common for the first 9 miles & then peel off for the shorter distances:

For those who love the rough! New event March 29th / 30th
Feb 24, 2014, 10:22 am

If you are interested in a new event, which is a bit different to a usual run in the park! Take a look at www.roughrunner.com

It's an obstacle event which will test your fitness, stamina and teamwork, and groups up and down the country are signing up to test their mettle!

It's a 10km or 10mile run, plus a dozen or so obstacles that have been inspired by all the TV game shows we used to watch - Gladiator, Takeshi's Castle, Wipeout, Ninja Warrior and more. You know, the ones you always wanted to try for yourself...

The location for this event is the Bordon military camp in Hampshire, and it'll be on March 29th & 30th. The terrain is a great mix of rugged tracks, forest roads, streams, bogs, and open grassy areas, where you'll be leaping, clambering, crawling and swinging your way through our awesome obstacles. To take a look at what you'll be up against, check out roughrunner.com/obstacles.

And as an extra benefit, the organisers have also partnered up with The Prince's Trust charity and will be donating 10% of each ticket straight to them. You can raise funds through sponsorship too, and if you get £100 together for them you'll be given VIP treatment on the day in their '100 Club'.

Finally, if you do want to set up a team for your club, there are group discounts of at least 15% on ticket prices.

Farnham Pilgrim Half/Full Marathon 21st Sept. 2014
Feb 16, 2014, 4:24 pm

Club members may wish to enter this trail race, which is very well organised, mainly off-road and not entirely flat but enjoys great scenery. 

Club members have supported the Farnham Pilgrim Marathon & Half Marathon and helped make it such a success over the past 4 years. Over this period, the event itself and individual sponsorship raised by runners has raised over £200,000 for charity. In addition, after winning the "Best New Event" in 2010, last year Runners World mag voted the race 4th in the UK trail runs. To enter, visit their website which can be found HERE.
