- Green Man Training Run on Saturday 1 September
Sarah Andrews, Stef Louvain Pasco and Mark Andrews are running the Green Man Ultra at the end of September and are planning a training run on 1 September where anyone who wanted to join us would be very welcome.
We plan to run the first section of the course from Ashton Court to Keynsham as none of us have done that part before. We will start at Sea Mills close to the station, run the Last few miles of the course over the downs to Ashton Court, then on to Keynsham, total distance of about 20 miles. We can then catch the train back to Sea Mills.
If anyone else is running the Green Man and wants to run the route, wanted to fit this in as part of marathon training, or just fancies a different Saturday long run then let us know, it would be great if others want to join us! Anyone who has run the route before and actually knows the way would be especially welcome!
For anyone who doesn’t know us well we are Group three runners but plan a really easy pace.
