So here's a few on my list for next year.
1) F3 events
F3 events run a fantastic run series over the start of the year at Eton and Dorney lakes. With a choice of 5km, 10km, 15km or 20km they make great training runs, are super organised and have a great medal. For more information check out their website here.
2) Richmond Park by Capital Runners
Some of my most enjoyable runs have been around Richmond park. It makes a great training run due to its undulating paths and that famous hill. Capital runners has been organising inexpensive races here for years with several in the next year. Check them out here.
3) human race Kingston run
This is an oldie but a goodie. A few weeks before the marathon a great pacing run with a choice of 8.2 16.2 or 20.2 miles. A lovely flat course and superbly organised. Being well establishing in the London marathon runners diary, it's also a great place to meet other runners, get tips and get the buzz for the marathon. Find out more here.
