Nutrition is often overlooked for a half marathon. You will have put a lot into training, so why not put some effort into a basic nutritional plan that could make your next half the best ever?

If you’re tackling a marathon, you will have trained hard for months to get in great shape and ready
to line up at the start of those 26.2 miles. One of the critical pieces in the marathon puzzle is your
race-day nutrition strategy.

Training Runs

MK Marathon Training Runs
Do you lack motivation to do those long Sunday morning training runs on your own? Well you’re not alone! Running with a group of like minded individuals who have a similar goal is a great incentive to get out of bed and get training.

We will be working with local Milton Keynes running club the Redway Runners on a schedule of Sunday training runs, aimed at anyone doing the Milton Keynes Marathon or Half Marathon. These will start in January 2018.

These Sunday runs usually get an average of 70 runners and are suitable for all abilities.

You can just turn up and introduce yourself and don’t need to book.
