What is your favourite RunThrough event, and why?

Name 3 top tips for runners, that you have learnt over the years
- Not every run has to be hard/fast and not every run will feel easy – don’t beat yourself up over the tough ones
- Remember that rest days are training days. Listen to your body, because if you get injured you’ll wish you took the rest day and still be able to run
- Find a running partner/training group – this will definitely help on the days that you don’t feel like getting out and running
What would you say to anyone coming to an event for the first time?

My current goal is to get fit again after a few years without running. Although I’m doing more gym work I’d like to get back under 17 minutes for 5k.
