Yes, the runners we have had in the past have been from all walks of life. CEO’s of engineering firms to shift workers. The intraining Marathon School program is written for each runner. Whatever your commitments, we can write a program to accommodate anything life throws at you.

I can only run for 5kms at the moment, is there enough time to train for a half or full marathon?

This depends on your running background. We recommend that you contact the intraining Marathon School coordinator to discuss which option is best for you.

I have had an injury in the past when I run long distances, will this affect anything?

The intraining Marathon School is designed on 3 days of running per week, each are quality sessions. We focus on a less is more approach. Whilst we can not guarantee you will not get injured, our program is designed on a progressive approach where each week builds on the previous, allowing your body to adapt to the training load.

It is best to be realistic about your goals. If you believe you can complete a marathon in 2019, we say go for it. However, remember that a marathon is a long way and it is best to be prepared and enjoy the event, rather than struggling through and not finishing. As our coaches for advice if you are unsure on distance you wish to attempt.
