There is something very special about the Gold Coast Airport Marathon – the time of year (fabulous winter!), the course following the vast beaches, the awesome atmosphere, the support – and not to mention the field of international runners wearing funky dress-ups!
|Race Distance||Training Program||Training Starts|
|Marathon 42.2km||16 weeks||11 March 2017|
|Half-Marathon 21.1km||12 weeks||08 April 2017|
|’10km-Self-Love’ Program||10-weeks||29 April 2017|
Our programs are built around 3 x weekly coached training sessions focusing on speed, strength and endurance. We train together as a team, as this offers encouragement, motivation, accountability for showing up and a great sense of camaraderie between fellow running buddies. Training programs are prepared in periodised blocks and provided via Training Peaks. This allows us to provide individual plans that best suits your needs and goals, as well as giving us the feedback and analysis tools we need. Our aim is to progresses you gradually, so that you train safely and without injury.
