Redway Runners are proud to announce the continuation of the Z2H project.

Our aim remains unchanged, we want to help “novice” runners become marathon runners.

This will be a simple and flexible programme that will make the most of existing resources within the club. The project will be led by Doug Yabsley & Stuart Woodruff. Additional support will come from Redway Runner Coaches, Run Leads and, most importantly, the many club members that have trodden the same path over the years.

So, have the recent marathons whetted your appetite to pull on those running shoes and work your way up to a marathon? Are you excited by the idea that “it could be you” but not really sure where to start? Is there a special charity in your life that you would love to support through running a marathon? Well, if so, we can help and we want to help!
Everyone has busy lives. However, although this plan will be carefully structured to deliver you to the start line of the MK Marathon in May 2017, it will be flexible enough to fit into your own lifestyle. The Training Schedule will follow these stages:
To prepare you for a successful marathon race day, the plan will include a number of races:

Candidates
We are now looking for people to join the programme in April. There is no charge for joining. However, participants will be expected to pay for their own equipment (such as trainers, running gear and a GPS watch). There will also be race entry fees – Participants will complete 1 x parkrun, 1 x Club 10K, 1 x Half Marathon, 1 x 20 mile & of course the “Graduation Marathon”.
