Guys, since everything seems to be cancelled for St. Patrick’s Day, leaving a lot of people off work with not much to do, we might as well have our own unofficial running event. 5km and 3km timed runs around St. Luke’s at 11:30am. Just a bit of fun, nothing serious. With regards to Coronavirus, outdoor running should be very low risk, and the Armagh Park Run is still going ahead, so I’m confident that it won’t pose a threat. However, this is an unofficial event and everyone is responsible for themselves, so if anyone has any concerns regarding the Coronavirus, please do not attend. Otherwise, hopefully we get a good crowd, some dry weather and a bit of fun.

The following training groups are to help people train at a level that is suitable to them.  However, you may train in any group you wish.  So if you would prefer to train with a friend in another group, fell free to do so.

First Timers

If it’s your first time at Maxx To 20K, you will start by running as far as you can without stopping.  Once you start walking, that is your distance, and will determine which group you start in.

White Group

Goal – to run 1km without stopping:  Whatever distance you can run, whether its 100m, 400m or 800m, you’re training is to run as far as you can, then walk until you get your breath back.

Current white group runners = 6
