Over the next few months we will be sharing the stories of some of the runner and walkers who are taking on the 2015 event.
Where are you coming from?
Is this your first 1/2 marathon
No I ran four last year: round the bays, great forest, armstrong, petone working mens club
What made you want to sign up for the Great Forest Events?
I enjoyed running in my first oraganised event and the great forest was the next available run after round the bays. Also, running on a forest sounded quite appealing. Running past trees gives you a great sense of progress!
What are you doing for training?
Running with a friend 2-3 times week. We've had a bit of a rest from long runs but we're gradually working back up from around 8k to 21k; with a few shorter runs in between when we get the time.
Any motivational tips for other participants?
Training with running partners is much more fun!
