    Running mates in Kowloon

    Hello guys. I've recently started running and plan to build up my skill and stamina to run a marathon next year. Looking for buddies to run with one time during the week in early mornings or late evenings and on a weekday more long distance run.
    I'm in Lai Chi Kok but willing to travel reasonable distance.

    How much a week are you able to run at the minute? What's your long run like?

    i'm only getting started. Currently I do 30-40 min but suffering from shin splints so sometime cutting it short.
    Long runs - 5-10K, increasing gradually.

    Have you run any long distances before? There's some good (basic) programs for building up to a marathon on Hal Higdon's site. You'd probably want to consistently manage 50km per week before starting a program, though. Here's his website; Hal Higdon Training Programs

    Think there's a few running groups in Kowloon. I've not joined the but have heard of these guys; kowloonhash
