Master your Marathon Workshop

End Date: 20/01/2019
Sports: Running
Location: UK
Price from: £65


Taking on your first marathon? Or perhaps you’ve already got a 26.2 miler or two under your belt but feel you haven’t yet done the distance justice. This workshop is perfect for you! Your two coaches have run over 40 marathons between them, and will show you how to get to both the start line and the finish line with a smile on your face …

We will cover:

·       how to set a realistic goal for your race and how to plan and structure your training
to achieve it.

·       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.

The workshop also includes a fully coached and supported long run on a flat scenic trail, during which you’ll receive individual feedback on pacing and running form. Don’t worry if it’s your first-ever long run – there will be varying distances on offer. Afterwards, we’ll go through a practical recovery session. And there’ll be time at the end for all your marathon-related questions.
