As you may be aware that whilst most of our posts are cycling related Sarah and I also like to do a bit of running too. We don’t publish too many posts since most of our running is fairly mundane – and its not easy to take photos when running!
However we have a few events coming up throughout the year and thought you might be interested in our running schedule for 2015.
Sunday 8th March – Trafford 10k
This popular event is our first of the year. Known for being flat and fast.
Sunday 20th March – Wilmslow Half Marathon
Another popular local event. This is the first time we have entered the Wilmslow Half Marathon. The route includes many of the roads we regularly cycle on.
Both of the above events are part of our training for the big one!:
Sunday 19th April – Greater Manchester Marathon
We completed our first marathon, the Loch Ness marathon, last September and that was quite hilly. Thankfully beginning from Old Trafford football ground and taking you around the Greater Manchester streets, whilst the scenery might not be quite as dramatic the Greater Manchester Marathon has the advantage of being a much flatter course.
We then leave running behind for awhile whilst we undertake our JOGLE End-to-End cycle tour in July.
Sunday 26th July – North Wales Half Marathon
I (Andy) completed this event last year. Unfortunately Sarah didn’t since was injured. So we have decided to have another go this year at the North Wales Half Marathon. This is a hilly and scenic event. Starting and finishing on the beach with a climb over Sychnant Pass in the middle.
Future 2015 Events
We will wait and see before deciding what events to enter after July. They might include:
- Scottish Half Marathon – September
- Chester Marathon – October
- Conwy Half Marathon – November. This was the first half-marathon we ran and we have taken part in it for the last two years.
- Stockport 10 – Our local event and very popular. We have also taken part in this for the last two years too.
