Free train­ing help for Great East­ern run­ners

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

RUN­NERS who need to get fit in time for the Great East­ern Run (GER) can take ad­van­tage of free train­ing ses­sions to help get into shape.

Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil and GER spon­sors Ad­vance Per­for­mance will stage seven free train­ing ses­sions at Wer­ring­ton Sports Cen­tre, in Stani­land Way, Peter­bor­ough, be­tween July and Oc­to­ber.

Held fort­nightly at 7pm on Wed­nes­days, start­ing from July 14, the ses­sions will cater for all run­ning abil­i­ties even first-time half marathon run­ners.

Ad­vance Per­for­mance will also be host­ing train­ing morn­ings at its store in Fen­gate, Peter­bor­ough, at 10am on July 3 and Au­gust 14.

The race does not take place un­til Oc­to­ber 10 but race di­rec­tor Stu­art Hamil­ton thinks run­ners need to start their prepa­ra­tions now.

He has urged peo­ple to take ad­vice from their lo­cal run­ning ex­perts who will be or­gan­is­ing the ses­sions.

He said: “This is a great op­por­tu­nity for any­one who fan­cies try­ing a half marathon for the first time to pick up some top ad­vice from run­ning ex­perts.”
