Are you tempted by the marathon? Do you need support and guidance to get you there? At ForgetTheGym, that’s exactly what we love to do. We want everyone to feel the buzz of crossing their first marathon finishline, and help experienced marathon runners improve.
No stranger to long distance herself, Mary has been coaching marathon runners since 2011 for events at home and abroad. Mary’s KBC Dublin Marathon Coaching Programme will kick off in June 2020 supporting runners all the way from 10k to the big day in October. Earlier in the year, Mary will hold Half Marathon workshops too.
How marathon coaching worksThere are three different programmes to cater for all experience levels and each programme runs for 16 weeks:
|'First Timers’||For men and women who wish to train for their first marathon (and can now run 10k).|
|'Improvers ’||For men and women who have completed at least 1 marathon – however slowly. We build on your experience and offer you all the tips and support to help you get more out of your training and improve your marathon performance.|
|'Marathon Club’||For men and women who have completed at least 2 marathons with ForgetTheGym. The only difference between this option and the improvers programme is that you will not attend workshops in this Programme.|
Each 16-week programme includes the following
- Two Face-to-Face small group workshops (see dates below)
- Training plans and schedules
- Weekly emails and online support
- Weekend long run meetups (optional)
- Private Forum for chats and advice
- Race Day Support
