Welsh Castles Relays The 34th Welsh Castles Relay is fast approaching (June 4/5th) and deadline for applications is even sooner (3rd March)!  Running the length of Wales - 200+ miles over 2 days, 20 stages and 65 teams. Starting at Caernarfon Castle on Saturday morning with an over night halt in Newtown and finishing on Sunday afternoon in Cardiff.  If you're interested in joining the Chaser Team - sign up here.    Marathon training runs For anybody who's marathon training at the moment, a few Chasers will be doing the Gade Valley marathon training run this Sunday from Hemel Hempstead. It's a really well-organised 17m training run (think "race" without timings or prizes, but with a decent field and water stops) around a very picturesque route, and only 30 mins out of Euston. It's only £5 and you just turn up and pay on the day.   Coached sessions this week Both the Tuesday (Primrose Hill) and Thursday (track) coached sessions will be led by Avril this week and details will be posted on the Mornington Chasers Facebook page in advance for anyone unable to attend.  Race Reports If you have something to say about a race you’ve run or can recommend any upcoming races, please email newsletter@chaser.me.uk.  Wokingham half marathon A fantastic scenic race! Extremely windy conditions today but in all a really good event. A great one for a PB.  Hampton Court Half Lovely flat route, pretty much perfect weather, if a bit breezy. Organisation a bit haphazard, but made up for by friendly marshals.  Old Deer Park Half Marathon It was my first race back from injury and was very muddy and windy (almost a trail race in places!) so was a long, long way from a PB.  I still managed sub 2 hrs (just!) in 1.59.51.   Calendar Here's whats happening over the next few weeks other than our usual Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday runs. You can find our full calendar on the website.
