Pace guide

This is a running tour, not a race. We run at the pace of the gentlest runner among us and we don't leave anyone behind. Each tour has a guide pace to keep you in your comfort zone

Festively fast
Sub 10 minute miles.
You usually run 10k in under 1 hour

Merrily Medium
10-12 minute miles.
You usually run 10k between 1hr and 1hr 15 mins.
You usually run 5k between 31 and 37 mins

Gentle jingle
12-13 minute miles.
You usually run 5k between 37 mins and 40 mins
You usually run 10k between 1 hr 15 mins and 1 hr 20 mins

Walk/run intervals
"jeffing" - mixing up short intervals of gentle jogging with walking. We'll aim for 1 minute of running: 30 seconds of walking but will adapt to the needs of the group

These paces are not designed as cut-offs but to give you peace of mind when you sign up.

If you're on the borderline of groups, we recommend joining the faster one.
