A big - and quite natural - fear as most runners build up to a marathon is staying injury free in those vital last few weeks. You're also probably starting to think about your diet and nutrition and what changes could help in the build-up to the big day.
To answer some of those questions - and to help keep your training on track - we would like to invite our Appeal runners to our latest advice session which will focus on both of those key areas: injury prevention and nutrition.
Industry experts from the Coach House Physiotherapy Clinic - who have worked with Team GB and are the official physiotherapy partners of The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon - will be on hand to share their knowledge and expertise. They'll also be there to answer those all-important questions and give you advice on any niggles you might be suffering.
Thursday 19th September - 6pm till
Coach House, Headingley, Leeds
Held at the Coach House Physiotherapy Clinic in Headingley, Leeds, this FREE evening will give you the chance to gain some vital information between now and race day.
