Training Program

Please read these sections carefully if you’re looking for advice on training for either of the two distances (Half Marathon and Team Relay Challenge). Clicking any of the Training Schedule buttons below will provide you with our recommended guide for training.


  • Always stretch your muscles to warm up before and after running, as this will decrease any chance of injury. If you do sustain a muscle injury, seek medical advice before you resume training.
  • On rest days you can help increase your body strength with 50 push-ups and 50 sit-ups, occasionally take a swim.
  • Ensure you are properly hydrated before, during and after you train or run, especially on warm days.
  • Do not run in new running shoes. Always break them in for a couple of weeks before the event.
  • The schedules shown should be used as a guide only, as training requirements can vary from one runner to another. Your local running club can be an excellent source of advice and information on training programs.
  • Walk at a pace to talk. Jog at a pace to give short replies. Run at a pace where you can only give one word answers.
