Marathon Week 2018 - Special Event Schedule
This year we are keeping things fun and active! Starting on October 12th and going right through race day, we will have some awesome events, a fun group run and deals at the store. Here is what we have so far. Check this page again for more great stuff as we get close to race day as well!
We are starting things off with a tempo run for all levels courtesy of Saucony! Then, on Tuesday October 16th, Saucony is also hosting an intimate discussion about the mental side of the sport with Alex Hutchinson, Outside Magazine's Sweat Science columnist and author of ENDURE: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance (you could even win a signed copy of his book!).
On Thursday night, courtesy of Maurten Nutrition, Jake Robertson will come to BlackToe Running for a discussion with Rosie Edeh. They will talk about running, racing, and life! Jake recently broke the one hour mark for the half marathon at the Great North Run and has a debut marathon PB of 2:08. He and his twin brother moved to Kenya to train with the likes of Mo Farah and he has been tearing up the world of running ever since.
Note that we will also Live-Stream this event via the BlackToe Facebook page!
And if you're not pounding the pavement at the STWM this year, you can help us make some noise at our lively cheer station at the store which is about 6km into the race. Please note that you will need to register for some of these events via the links below.
