Training Partners Wanted

I have been running 10k's for a short while and would like a training partner/s in the Woodford (IG8/Essex)area for long sunday morning runs and possible shorter evening runs in summer. I hope to have a place in the FLM 2004. My running pace is approx 9/10 min mile.
Look forward to your response.


  • There are also people looking for running pardners on - give it a try...
  • thanx 4 that, I'll check it out.
  • check out the "Herts & Essex URWFRC" thread in thr URWFRC forum, might be useful
  • I live in Barkingside, I'm also at about the 9-10 mile stage (I'm training for the Dublin Marathon)
  • am new to all this but it seems to be as good a place as any to ask advice! Have just got a place in the GNR but, apart from the Lincoln 10K in 2000, am pretty much a novice and am training from scratch - any ideas for training, bearing in mind i play five a side at the moment and thats about it . Thanks
  • Hi Simon,
    There's some 1/2 Marathon training schedules on this site. Start off nice and easy and gradually build up your weekly long and you'll be fine by September.
  • Hi Andy

    Where and when do you go out for your long runs and do you go with anyone? I'm doing a lot of road running at the moment. Charlie Brown's to Gants Hill to Barkingside and back.
  • Hi Claire,
    For my long run I normally start in Fullwell Ave (where I live) run down to Fullwell Cross, down Forest Road, through Hainault Industrial Estate, up the hill by Hainault Forest to towards Ghigwell church, along Manor Road (past Manford Way and Grange Hill tube station), down Fencpiece Rd, through a couple of side roads back to Fullwell Avenue then back to Fullwell Cross and down Forest Road to Fairlop Waters, turn around back to Fullwell and along to the end of Fullwell Ave (The Glade end). Does any of that make any sense to you? I'm going to do my long run tonight because me and a friend are running the BAD 5 in Barking on Sunday.
