Get your running shoes at the ready because The Appeal are holding a FREE Marathon Training Day for all Appeal Team marathon runners.

The Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon takes place on 11th October and has sold out to general entry for the 3rd year in a row. By joining the Appeal Team for this fantastic sporting event, runners can attend the Appeal Team Training Day which takes place at York Sport on 6th June 2015.

Designed to get runners feeling ready for the Marathon and comfortable with their training in the lead up to the event, the day is a fantastic opportunity to meet other Appeal Team runners, ask questions and get expert advice. It will be a fun-filled, action-packed day with a variety of activities to get involved in.

Here is a glance at what the day will involve:

  • 5KM run on parts of the marathon route

  • Expert led sessions on nutrition and injury prevention

  • Instructor led spinning, stretching and running conditioning classes

  • Boot Camp and FAQ Sessions

  • Event day Q&A with the Appeal Team

  • Optional use of York Sport's swimming and cycling facilities
