As most of you may have heard, last week I was nominated to join big time seller Women’s Running UK as one of their race ambassadors for the year. I was extremely happy when I had received the email, in fact, I was jumping around for joy (quite literally) and couldn’t wait to share the news with you all.
Hard work pays off, and this is applied to many things. So let’s talk about when it’s applied to training for an event. You are running a 5K/10K (or even a half marathon) and you have to put in the graft to be able to see the end results. It can be hard and very tiring, and it won’t always be fun. It can be so, so difficult just to get yourself motivated, but remember, we all have to start somewhere! So my job here is to motivate you lot to get your trainers on and join me within the world of running. Whichever mileage you choose, I’ll be with you every step of the way. The more the merrier I say, so lets get us all out together. Come on ladies… Let’s do this!
So you’re new to running? You want to start training for an event but unsure of which to choose? Women’s Running magazine have set up their own series which involve twelve different race events across the U.K. Each race has three running distance options, the original 10K, beginners 5K and their new 1 mile run which is for all those wanting to join in on the fun. Women’s Running have made the races applicable for all candidates. What ever your ability is, what ever your purpose is, it does not matter, because their will be a distance for you. You just have to want to run it!
All 5K/10K runners will finish with a special medal, a goody bag filled with treats and of course, the all important finishers t shirt. So if you are looking for a new challenge, or would like to start running and need a race to keep you motivated then LOOK NO FURTHER. All races will have pacers on the day, so you can keep track of your timing, but if you would rather do it for the fun of it, then you will feel more than welcome to join a team of women promoting other women’s fitness.
Expect to to recieve your runners number and extra details two weeks prior to race day. If you unsure where your nearest Women’s Running event is, check out the bottom of this page for dates and SIGN UP today.
