AIR: Run Richmond Park - Half Marathon (TEAM EVENT)

Audio Inspired Running in London's largest Royal Park



Description

This is a brand new race , part of Richmond Run Fest. This race has music following you for the whole distance and there is a live music after party.

I propose an idea to make this event a little different....I am looking to create a Half Marathon team of "coaches" and "runners". The coaches will have run a Half Marathon before and be comfortable (ish) with the distance. They will then be responsible for motivating and encouraging the runners , maybe arranging training runs and potentially running the entire race as a team or in small groups . I think it would be awesome if the race can be targeted at runners who have wanted to run a Half Marathon race but have yet to do so, and this way they won't be on their own as they will have "coaches" with them every step of the way and it becomes one big GG event!

I will also be doing the same with a 10km group.

This is the link to the website to sign up (cost is £40.00 I believe) https://www.airrun.london/register/

Once you have registered for the race, sign up for it on here and in the comment box below, state whether you will be a "coach" or a "runner"

Any questions just ask!

Happy to be "coach/cheerleader" for whoever wants to run their first half marathon

Hi Anita
This is fantastic news, good for you!! I was down to run this too but when I saw that no one else seemed to be interested in running it and because my training hasnt been the best I changed my entry to the 10km! :-( but, i am still more than happy to do some training runs with you as you train for the half marathon, what do you think?
