Meath Running Group calling all Runners & Joggers
In 2010, Meath Running Group helped over 60 joggers & runners to reach their target – either completing a 10km, 10 miles, half or full marathon.
Meath Running Group is now open to new members who have a running base and are aiming to complete a 10 mile, half marathon or full marathon this year. This group training can be hugely beneficial to runners as sessions will focus on speed and endurance training such as tempo runs and interval training.
This 9 week programme, which starts Wednesday 31st August at 6.45pm in Claremont Stadium, Navan is ideal for runners aiming to improve their times this year. The programme will cost €30(that’s just over €3 a session!), members will receive individualised programmes and coach led training sessions.

This year the group has participated in numerous races from 5k to a half marathon and had good follow-on success from our first year in existence.
The focus of this year's training is participating in the Adidas Race Series(race results here) which will prepare those of us who will go on to compete in the Dublin Marathon in Ocober. Getting close now guys!
For the unitiated, the Race Series includes 5 mile, 10 mile and Half-Marathon distances, all of which are run in the Phoenix Park. The group also participated in a 10k in May in the same location.
We're now coming into October after the half marathon being completed two weeks ago. Long runs will begin to ease back soon and the big day is 4 weeks away!
