Is this training program right for me?

We don’t put many limits on how to join the Marathon Revolution, but we do have three general criteria one must meet to safely run a marathon:

  • You aren’t too overweight
  • You can run 10km in under 65 minutes
  • You don’t mind running less than 14km!

Too much weight is a no-go for the 14K approach. At our slightly higher training speeds, excess weight can lead to joint, tendon and ligament injuries. Here’s a simple formula to calculate whether you’re within our limit: take your height in cm, subtract 100 and add 10%… that’s your personal weight limit.

Let the computer do the math for you!

If you can’t run a 10K within 65 minutes, worry not! Take things one step at a time, do a few 5Ks, focus on slowly increasing your distance and you’ll get there in no-time. Similarly, if you’re overweight, start off with reducing your carbs and sugar intake and we’re sure we’ll see you back here soon!
