Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th March 2017
South Downs Way

In March we will be holding a training weekend on the South Downs Way. The SDW is a long distance footpath in Southern England and is one of Britain's National Trails. It runs for around 100 miles from Winchester in Hampshire to Eastbourne in Sussex, with a small loop around Eastbourne. Don’t worry we won’t be running all of it but you will get to take in some of the beautiful countryside.

We will be staying at the South Downs YHA near Southease.

Example Itinerary:

Friday

Arrival and introduction to the Run-Fast team. Optional easy run (daylight permitting) followed by a hearty dinner to fuel up for the following day.

Saturday

The morning will see us doing a hill session, with rewards of spectacular views over the South Downs. After breakfast there will be some time for R&R before a 'Conditioning and Drills for Runners' session. In the afternoon there will be a seminar on Nutrition for Runners followed by an easy recovery run to keep the legs nice and loose after the morning’s hard work.

Sunday

Sunday morning can only mean one thing: the long run. We will be following the South Downs Way National Trail, with a member of the Run-Fast team acting as marker for runners of varying abilities. After a well-earned breakfast and relax everyone will be able to pack up at their leisure and head back to reality to put what they’ve learned on the weekend into practice.
