Following this years succesful Manchester Marathon in May where twelve Tortoises headed south (and returned with nine PB’S) a marathon event closer to home has been chosen as this years official club marathon.
The ever popular Edinburgh Marathon Running Festival on Sunday 29th May 2016 has been selected,
The reason we have selected this event is that there are three running options the full marathon, half marathon or for teams of four to run a marathon relay.
Winter is now upon us but spring is not far away, having a race target really will help your winter running.
ONLY 27 WEEKS TO GO !!!
Club members entry is £53 and note this event has sold out in the first week of January for the last four years.
When you have entered on-line let Darrell or George know so you can be included in the longer training run’ at the weekends.
