Prepare for your trip

All of our marathon campaigns include a structured program based around the following sessions.


40 min leg strength, core and upper body program designed on building strength in your legs, a strong core and a powerful upper body. We follow this up with a 20 min flush run.


THIS WILL GET YOU FIT FAST!!! Our toughest day but the "runners high” is undeniable after this class, hence why we have our biggest following on a Wednesday. There are hills, intervals, speedwork and strong efforts over this hour long session. Designed to build strength and speed in your legs, increase oxygen efficiency and endurance.


The focus on Fridays has always been on glute and hip activation exercises,  a shorter run with foam rolling and core to finish. Working with more and more people on marathon training programs, we've noticed a common thread in ankle, hip and thoracic injuries. We focus on getting you mobile and educating you on what you do before EVERY run, as it's crucial in injury prevention.


Our long runs. The distances will vary depending on where you are in the program. Saturday mornings, we encourage you to get here early and spend some time on the exercises you have learnt on Friday morning. Post long run, take the time to use the ice bath and spa afterwards.
