Maidenhead Relay Marathon and training runs

Link Foundation Maidenhead Relay Marathon, 2.00pm Sunday 12th June 2011.

Big Deal Training has entered a team for this race.  Join the team and play your part!  It’s a popular relay challenge and we will be a team of up to 10 people who can all manage the 2.62 mile distance. Held as a finale to Carnival Weekend in Maidenhead, this is a fantastic event, whether you are competitive and hoping to win, or just aiming to get round. With plenty of spectator support and other activities happening in the central part of town, you are sure to be part of a great weekend, raising funds for charity in the process. There are prizes for overall winning team as well as winning team in different categories.  However, we are entering for the thrill of the event, to have fun and do our best, not to beat world records!

Each team member will complete a lap of 2.62miles, making up to the marathon distance between them.  The cost will be £13 per team member.  All proceeds going towards the entry fee, majority of which goes to charity.  If you would like to take part, please get in touch and I will confirm your place when I have received your payment.

I will arrange some Big Deal Training team shirts for the event (optional!).  I will only ask cost price for these which will be around £12 (details to follow soon).

I will be arranging some training runs for the group regularly as the event gets closer (watch this space!).  Even if for example you are able to run for 30 seconds now and need a 30 second walk before running again, I will help and advise you on how to progress to running as much of the 2.62 mile course as possible.  Please contact me if you want any specific personalised guidance in your training.

TRAINING RUN – 11.00am Saturday 26th February at Swinley Forest, Bracknell.

Meet at 11.00am at the bike hire store at the Lookout Discovery Centre, Nine Mile Ride, Bracknell, RG12 7QW.  We will set off promptly at 11.10am.  The terrain will be a little muddy with some hills and a bit of uneven ground.  Bring some training shoes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.  ALL LEVELS OF ABILITY WELCOME – I will deliver a coaching session that everyone from competitive athlete to beginner can take part in (if you are interested in how I will achieve this, just give me a ring).  Scenes from the last Harry Potter film were filmed in these beautiful woods.  They are a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the Thames Valley.  The session will last about 1 hour 15 minutes and is FREE OF CHARGE.

MORE TRAINING RUNS TO FOLLOW IN THE WEEKS LEADING UP TO THE MAIDENHEAD RELAY MARATHON.
