Plan Description

The following training programmes cover a period of 17 weeks.

Each programme is designed to cater for different levels and abilities so it’s important that you choose the right plan for you. A training schedule needs to be challenging but not so that you feel out of your depth.If you're an experienced runner and have completed a marathon before, this is the training guide for you.
