Our support staff will assist you with a training program that suits your level of prior running experience, and your goals for the event.
You will be given 6 hours minimum to complete the distance of your choice. You could choose to walk the half, or jog the 7kms and give yourself more recovery time.
There are many options and we are happy to discuss these with you.
