Why 17 weeks?
We believe optimal performance comes with around 16 weeks of work plus a week to freshen up!

Using a combination of pace and heart rate to optimise your physiological response and keep fatigue under control, this program will suit all abilities who have completed at least a 10km unbroken run.

Based on 4 runs per week, this allows those with busy lives to be able get through the sessions each week and still perform on their chosen race day.

Can be completed without using heart rate, but best results have come from pace and heart rate.

Use your "off days" for cross training, strength or core work, yoga, flexibility, recovery! These will all aid your build to your best Half Marathon!!
