Half Marathon Training Guide


‘ Nearly 2 hours passed and I could see the finish line, as I started, elated. The only difference being that I had aching legs (the last 2 miles took their toll) and I was 13.1 miles away. Mission accomplished, my first marathon was completed!’

Ian Cross- The Great North run runner
