• How to set a realistic goal for your race and how to plan and structure your training to achieve it.
  • Why you don’t need to be running long runs every single week, or increasing mileage every week (phew!).
  • How to get those long runs right in terms of pace, distance and frequency.
  • Tips on how to maximise recovery and deal with post-run niggles.
  • Race preparation (including the taper and formulating your ‘race plan’).
  • Race day itself - fuelling up, missing 'the wall' and winning the mental game.
  • A supported and guided long run. (Don’t worry if it’s your first one – there will be varying distances on offer.)
  • A stretch and recovery session.
  • Q+A

Is it for you? This workshop is suitable for any marathoner who would like to know more about how to train and race the distance effectively, including first-timers. A long (though individually tailored) run is included during the day, so try to avoid doing a hard or long run the day before and after.
