Lead by Mark Ilott, this group is planned to help beginners and new runners prepare for the 2016 Bath Half Marathon. The training will be structured on the people that attend to ensure nobody will get left behind or left out. The sessions will be either incremental distance runs or training drill sessions designed to increase speed and stamina.
