London Marathon 2017 - Did you get a place?

Runners all over the UK have been discovering if they got a place in the world’s largest annual fundraising event on the planet – The London Marathon 2017. Congrats if you got a place this year – hopefully you’re more excited than scared!

Now the place is secured, it’s a good idea to draft a training plan so you can ease your way into the 26.2 mile challenge! Including a healthy diet, weekly cardio & strength training to stabilise your core. There are some helpful 17 week training plans on the Virgin London Marathon website - click here 

Of course, you now have an excuse to treat yourself to a new training kit! Think fresh running shoes, lycra leggings & a running bag to match! Why not give our Fleetfoot running bag a go – just like Amy Childs did when she ran the London Marathon in 2013.

 (Note – Amy is wearing the Fleetfoot2) We have since upgraded this to the Fleetfoot3 MAX! – the new version can carry the larger phones that many of us have now.

Autumn is the perfect time to test out new running gear & find what works best for you – So you’re super prepared for the build up through the Winter and into Spring 2017.

On the other hand, if you didn’t get a place this year – don’t give up on your goals! There are plenty of races you can run in the meantime. To find your next race, click here & fingers crossed for next year!
