Our guides cover running, cycling and triathlons, from beginners to experienced levels, and feature week by week plans, tips to get started, stretching, strength and conditioning, cross training and more. Combine this with our support from their coaches on email and twitter and we can guarantee you’ll be ready come race day.

You can also join our running and cycling clubs on Strava to record your training activity, connect with other Men United members in your local area and organise training sessions with your mates.
