Beginners Marathon Training Seminar - 14th February - SIGN UP NOW

The Club has organised a Marathon Training Seminar for beginners. Click above for details...

Planning to run your first marathon in 2011? Feeling a little overawed or need specific questions answered? The Club has organised a Seminar aimed at guiding you through the whole experience from training to post-race recovery. Specific topics will include:

  • Are you really ready for the challenge?
  • Target-time setting (and adjusting)
  • The key training sessions
  • Building up the miles safely
  • Injury/illness Prevention
  • Race practice
  • Tapering
  • The Race and what to expect
  • Post race recovery

Followed by a 15mins Q&A session.

When & Where: Monday 14 February 2011, 6:30pm start in the GREYCOAT Room, Civil Service Sports Club, 1 Chadwick Street, Westminster, London SW1P 2EP (map here)

Registration: Please see this page to sign-up. Places are limited to 50. ** If your plans change or you can no longer make it please take your name off the list so others can benefit.**

Speaker will be Andrew Reeves, currently training for his 6th London, with a debut time of 2:41 in 2005 and is Men's Road Relay and previously Track and Field Captain.

Note: This seminar is ostensibly for first-time marathon runners - i.e. runners who already have some experience of running and are moving up from 10k or half marathon distance to the full marathon and are seeking a specific time - rather than complete running beginners who may just want to finish the race. (2nd or 3rd time marathoners who feel they could still benefit also welcome)
