Now’s the time to kick up the training for June 2. Help is at hand to keep you motivated with our 12-week training guide, written by qualified coaches specifically to help McDonald’s Brisbane Marathon Festival runners achieve their goal.

It’s a mix of time-based and distance-based sessions that cover endurance, strength and speed. Challenging yourself (getting comfortable with being uncomfortable) is important for race day success, however, it is just as important to factor in recovery time including rest days and easy/comfortable runs for allowing the body and mind to prepare itself for the days ahead.

A full explanation of terms explaining the sessions are including in the guide.

Please consult your doctor before beginning any new exercise program.
