While many runners obstinately view their Sunday training as a solitary session, specialist retailers Run Geek has been bucking the trend with their popular Sunday Social run that encourages everything that is good about clocking up the miles with a running buddy.
The Warrington-based team has provided further encouragement for local runners by adding a 5k distance to the usual 10k muster run. With the addition of the 5k, the team are hoping to welcome first-timers as well as those looking to increase their weekly mileage in 2017 with a view to tackling some of the top races in the area, including the English Half Marathon and 10K event.
Each Sunday, runners meet at the Run Geek shop at 9:15am for a 9:30 start with the mantra that 'no one get’s left behind and everyone is welcome'. The Sunday Social team has the admirable tradition of collecting each week for Warrington Foodbank. And for each donation the runner will receive a free bacon butty.
What’s more, anyone able to complete 10 Sunday Social Runs will receive a fetching free #SundaySocial T-shirt. If you would like more information or to confirm your attendance, email firstname.lastname@example.org or join their Facebook event.
