Are you looking to run a fast 10k over the summer? Look no further than the Battersea Park Summer League race on Sunday 20 August which is a flat course with great PB potential. We’ve produced a training schedule with a focus on speed endurance (5km to threshold pace) to build up to a fast time at Battersea.
You can customise the schedule by entering your goal time and including additional runs during the week. Please do give yourself at least one rest day a week. Rest is vital for everyone. Also remember the benefits of cross training and strength and conditioning as part of your training.
The first summer league race of 2017 took place today at Gunnersbury Park, hosted by Ealing Eagles running club and saw a fantastic turnout of Chasers. A flat 3-lap course meant that plenty of 10k PBs were gained including William Watt, Adrian Cathersides and Emma Hayward amongst others. We entered five relay teams with impressive displays all round considering that everyone had just run a strong 10k. The miniature Chasers (children, not people who suffered the same fate as Mike Teavee) were out in force and excelled at the mile race as well as the children’s relay.
Well done to those of you who picked up awards from last season including Hope (SL-1st), Emma (SL-2nd), Alice (F40-3rd), Fiona (F45- 1st), John (M40-1st),Bobby (M70-1st), Martin Watt (Boys aged 9) and Lucy Watt (Girls aged 6). For those of you who weren’t there to pick up your prizes, I can only assume John is displaying all of them on his mantelpiece and claiming your victories as his own.
Thanks to Emma for organising the coach to take us all to deepest west London, to Dave Nelson for organising the team and taking photos throughout the morning and to everyone who came to cheer us on. A special thanks goes to Alice for her beetroot jellies- these were the real reason so many people scored personal bests. The next race will take place in Harrow on the 18th of June. Check the club calendar for more details.
As hosts of the upcoming Regents Park Summer League 10k we need to provide plenty of volunteers to ensure the smooth and successful organisation of the event. Volunteers are needed for course marshaling, noting finish times, water stations or helping out with the picnic. Sign up to help out via the calendar.
