The Windermere Marathon is looming. It is set to be a great day as Swift Running Companies owner Ian Penney is pacing good friend of the company Paul to his target time of a sub-4 marathon. The vast majority of our work takes place on the fells but now and again we come down and run on the roads, though it is once in a blue moon.
The Windermere marathon is set to be the longest run in the Lap of the Lakes series. The goal for 2018 is to circumnavigate 17 of the largest waters, lakes and meres that make up the Lake District.
With no specific marathon training for this years Windermere Marathon and a long winter in the mountains Ian is without top end speedwork but has a solid base.
