beginners marathon training schedule is completely different to that used by
an experienced marathon runner. Whilst a beginner will be starting with virtually no level of
fitness, intermediate runners have moved beyond the basics and have at least some running
under their belts.

shoes, ideally selected for you by staff at a reputable running shop that have the facilities

during your training, injury prevention and the right type of nutrition for your sport.

Finally you may need to get some specialized clothing such as waterproofs, thermal
underwear and running socks etc.

If you can’t run to begin with then you should aim to power walk up until you are able to
jog gently, from there you can progress a little faster. Running 3 times a week should be enough to
