Training support

We've teamed up with the UK’s premier endurance coaching company, RunningWithUs, to give you expert information on how to improve your technique and train safely and effectively for your event.

Check out our training hub. Whether it's your first event, or your hundredth, you'll find the support you need with guides for beginners, improvers and experienced runners. The plans cover distances of 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon, and there's also a guide to better running.

We also host a running training day at our head office in London in January to make sure you're fully prepared for your event. 

On the day

We know a marathon is a big feat, so we make sure we look after our runners every step of the way. Everyone on our team receives:

  • A fundraising pack with a technical running top to wear with pride over the coming months
  • Dedicated training plans from the pro coaches at RunningWithUs
  • Personalised advice available via email or phone from top running coaches
  • A tailored training day
  • Fundraising advice and ideas
  • Post–race massages with trained physiotherapists
  • After party with food and drink and a chance to meet the team
  • A place on the only team dedicated to beating prostate cancer
