Peterborough half marathon – 2019


Many Stevenage Striders are taking on the Peterborough half marathon on 13/10/2019. Some for the first time and others to improve their time from 2018. It is a flat, fast course that is first t8mer friendly but great for those looking for a pb!

Whether it is the first or eighth time you are running the race remember that you need to be running at least three times a week. Also, don’t forget to include at least one strength training session a week. This will make you a better runner and less prone to niggling injuries.

– Tuesday with the club

– Thursday with the club

– long run on Sunday with the club. These should be run at a slower pace.

This ensures you get a balanced training programme – the correct level of mileage but also quality sessions on Tuesday and Thursday that will get you running faster and more efficiently.


Unsure of what pace you should be running for your training sessions, particularly your long runs. Use the following pace calculator to make sure you are on target.
