"Reaching the finish line was one of the most empowering moments of my life. Thanks for all your weekly videos, tips, vast experience and advice. Your calmness and reassurance were second to none." - Ciara.
"I have no idea how you manage to pack that much information and education into your videos and documents and yet it never overwhelmed, it was just the right information at the right time.
You do such an amazing job - you deserve a medal! "
Are we the right fit?
If you can run 10k comfortably by spring 2023 and are injury free, you are in a great position to start our programme.
Most of our runners will focus on completing the marathon injury free and comfortable. Everyone is welcome, it is a non- competitive environment and we don’t focus too much on the time on the clock. Getting around the course in one piece (with a smile on their face) is the main goal of most of our runners.
Most of our runners in our group are female, but we do occasionally have a few male runners in our marathon programmes. If your main marathon goal is a particular time target (especially if sub 3.30), we might not be the right group for you.Sounds Good to Me!
