Run Strong: 2014 / 15 Race Calendar (Part 2)

Now Run Hackney Half Marathon is well and truly out of the way, I can focus again on the rest of the year and even start to think about the beginning of 2015!

I’ve signed up for a few local 10km runs in the hope that I can cycle to them and then run as practice for The London Duathlon in September. All my races are listed on the ‘Train with Elle’ page too!

Here are the newest races / events I have added / plan to add to my race calendar:

Run or Dye – 27th September 2014

This will be my first non timed fun run..EVER! Just 5km of fun with a festival to finish things off! You can join us too and use code SIMPELLE to receive a discount on your entry to any UK event!

If you will be running, please join the event on the keep to simpElle page so we can all catch up before the day…

Garmin Run Kingston Challenge – 12th October 2014

Nneka, Nkeiruka and myself have taken on this relay challenge. 8 miles each to total 24 miles…Cos I know I couldn’t do this by myself! Keep an eye out for Nneka’s and Nkeiruka’s stories of their journeys to where they are now with running and fitness! (You might also remember Nkeiruka from my runcation to Geneva in May! She ran the half marathon that weekend!)

…p.s I didn’t get a place in the Royal Parks Half Marathon ballot also on October 12th. You win some, you lose some!

London Winter Run – 1st February 2015

The Cancer Research UK London Winter Run is challenging people to keep running through the winter by taking on a 10km run on February 1st 2015. 15,000 people are expected to fill the streets making their way past London’s most iconic landmarks where they will brave the elements to raise vital funds to help beat cancer sooner.

Brighton Half Marathon – 22nd February 2015 

I’m keen to run a half in the autumn and then one early in 2015. This is the half I have entered for 2015. It’s where I went to University – where I never ran. I walked only when forced to in those days so running 13.1 miles in this city will be amazingly nostalgic…with a different view! 

What races have you added to your calendar?! Will you be at any of the ones I have signed up for?!

      Wow! Your list sounds like a real challenge!! Look forward to following your journey! …I would have loved to do Bacchus Half if I wasn't already doing the duathlon! I'll save it for 2015!

    The London Winter Run sounds super fun and motivating! I did my first relay this past June-it was really fun to run with friends and be able to cheer on your teammates after your run portion was over!

      Yes! I did a relay in May and it was awesome!! …I'm looking forward to the Winter Run…I'm used to training outdoors no matter the weather but running outdoors no matter the weather will be an education for me!
