Summer Distance Training

With the prospect of autumn marathons on the horizon (restrictions permitting), BFR are would like to offer runners the opportunity to join group distance training runs and are therefore looking for people to lead group runs.

If you are running one of the autumn marathons and would like to lead a group, please email with details of which marathon you are running, your pace and an outline of your plan (number of weeks and distance).   We will add your plan to the table below and also advertise it on Facebook and in the newsletter

All training runs are available to all members of Bracknell Forest Runners (BFR) whether or not they are taking part in a marathon or other distance race. Members of other clubs are welcome to join us for these training runs but would have to join BFR as second claim members. Unattached runners can also apply for membership of BFR. BFR is affiliated to England Athletics and so our training runs are covered by relevant EA insurance policies subject to the terms and conditions of those policies.

Please select training runs appropriate to your ability, if in doubt please ask; don’t wreck your chances by over training, especially in the early days.

Do ensure that you wear clothing suitable to the distance of the run and conditions and if running at night please wear light coloured clothing, preferably hi-viz or florescent. Bring your own food, drinks, gels etc for consumption during and after each run. You do not have to take part in every run within a group’s schedule. Also you may swap between groups whenever it suits your particular training needs
