Training for Broad Street Run (#196: 2023’03’07’T)

With us Growlers


Broad Street Run 2023 is rapidly approaching and many of us Growlers will be doing it (2023’04’30’U). We’ve even had had JRC team efforts in the past: Preserved on Crystal.

For those runners who don’t consider themselves long distance runners, you’re probably wrong. One running author considers 5K medium distance: That puts a 10 miler like Broad Street in the long-distance range. However, there’s relativity in the discussion because 5K is already long distance in track and field competition (Search results on ‘medium vs long distance running’ provide ample evidence.).

Either way, 10 miles is quite a distance and kudos go to anyone who’s shooting to run it. Here are two Runner’s World articles that could be useful for those looking to tackle it for the first time or who are doing it again: How to Prepare for Your First 10 Mile Run and How to Run a Better 10-mile Race.

Five-kilometer distances, like what we Growlers do regularly, belong in the training. So do 10K distances. So whether you do 1x with us on the Sunset 5K route or 2x, you’re that much closer to a successful BSR.
