So You Want To Do A Marathon !

Taking part in a marathon next year? We are hosting a free marathon preparation class in Wheelworx on Wednesday the 7th of January

This talk will be hosted by Aisling Coppinger who will be ably assisted by Rob Cummins who between them have completed countless marathons, Ironman races and ultrmarathons. They will be offering advice on training, nutrition, preparing for race day, equipment selection and lots more. There will be a Q&A at the end of the talk, so if there are more specific topics you want advice on we can cater for those too.
