Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

Marathon Training Programme

Head Coach Gerry Reilly has provided a 15 week Marathon training programme for the 2011 Virgin London Marathon which will take place on Sunday 17th april.

The Marathon training programme for this years race has had to be adapted to take into account the earlier date for the race and is set up to make the most of local target events, taking into to account the cancellation of the Thanet 20 in 2011 – the normal 20 mile target race.

This is a 15 week plan starts from the first week in January and builds up from a base weekly mileage of approximately 25 miles to a maximum of approximately 55 miles. There is an interim “recovery” week around the middle of the schedule and as with all conventional Marathon training programmes there is a “tapering down” period during the final 3 weeks.

Good Luck

Mount Ephraim 10K

As Race Director I’d like to congratulate all the competitors who ran on 11th July and to thank our sponsors – Bailey’s Nissan and Mount Ephraim Gardens. I must thank the team of marshals without whom running an event like this would be impossible. I must also thank our French visitors including 34 runners for their enthusiasm in supporting this race and making Mount Ephraim 10K run a truly international event.

The race itself took place on a hot day with forecasts of record breaking temperatures and weather warnings – not ideal conditions for running a very undulating if not hilly course! Last minute emergency planning of an additional water station at approx 8km was successful and this station will become a permanent fixture in the race. As it turned out there was some cloud cover which meant the full blazing sun could not do its worse and all runners – a record entry of 274 – completed the course without problems on the hydration/heat front. In fact St John Ambulance our first aid cover was not needed for any incident – not even a wasp sting! The record entry was due in part to online entry through Runner’s World, another feature we will keep for 2011. We also intend to keep Mount Ephraim 10K as a Kent Grand Prix event but will need to confirm this later in the year. Next year we hope to again be at Mount Ephraim 10K run on the second Sunday in July, we should be confirming the date on this website soon.

The results service went well and we were able to present prizes in good time – I’ll not name individuals here (but see results page on the website) as all competitors did their best and so were victorious in tough conditions – before the slightest of showers and then we hosted an excellent buffet for our French visitors before the final clear up of race equipment. Again thank you to those Canterbury Harriers who were able to stay and help with this – I guess the “free” drink and champagne from our French guests helped here!

Finally I must thank all entrants as £1 from each UK entry was donated to Demelza House raising £240 for their excellent charity work.

Mount Ephraim 10K Sunday 11th July – a Kentish Gem

If you are looking for the routine fast flat crowded 10K race then Mount Ephraim is definitely not for you.

It is as they say in the trade “undulating” . If on the other hand you are looking for a race with a difference this could be the one.

Starting and finishing in the stunning grounds of Mount Ephraim house you will find yourself running through a beautiful little corner of Kent on nearly traffic free rural lanes with constantly changing scenery including a spectacular view of the Thames Estuary at the highest point in the course.

After the race you can relax and take time out for traditional English tea and scones on the terrace and enjoy the spectacular grounds and gardens (remember the race entry fee includes free entry to the grounds and gardens for runners and their families)

For more information on the race including a race entry form please visit the Mount Ephraim 10K website.

Alternatively to register on-line visit the Runners World website here.

Harriers should note that they will need to provide a friend to marshall for them if they wish to race.
