Take on a new chal­lenge this sum­mer

Didn’t catch the memo for #Run1000Miles? You can still boost your run­ning for the rest of the year

Trail Running (UK) - - Training - Dar­ren Onye­jekwe

is a #Run1000Miles am­bas­sador, cal­is­then­ics coach and proud mem­ber of Run Dem Crew – and the brains be­hind our train­ing plan. He fo­cuses on mix­ing up ses­sions to in­clude new move­ments and ex­er­cise types, to give your mus­cles a break from repet­i­tive run­ning, while still keep­ing your mileage high.

Back in Jan­uary, we launched #Run1000Miles – our chal­lenge to you to run 1000 miles over the course of 2017. So far, over 4000 peo­ple have signed up and pledged to make 2017 their fittest year ever. You only need to glance at our ded­i­cated Face­book group to see the en­thu­si­asm and com­mu­nity you guys have gen­er­ated. But what if you missed the boat? Well, never fear.

#Run500Miles is our ac­com­pa­ny­ing chal­lenge for any­one look­ing to start now – to run 500 miles be­fore the end of the year. It sounds a lot – and it is, hence the chal­lenge – but as our ded­i­cated chal­lengees have proven so far, it is more than achiev­able. Not only will you be join­ing this amaz­ing group of run­ners, you’ll be declar­ing pub­licly to be a fit­ter, stronger per­son by the time we usher in 2018.

This train­ing plan has been cre­ated by our #Run1000Miles am­bas­sador Dar­ren Onye­jekwe to take your run­ning to new strengths. Us­ing speed ses­sions, crosstrain­ing and mo­bil­ity work, it en­cour­ages a more holis­tic ap­proach to run­ning – you will start it as a run­ner and fin­ish it as an ath­lete.
