Hi I amazingly got a place in the VLM and am starting to train completely from scratch. Does anyone in SE London want to train together? Alternatively can you suggest a running club in the Lewisham/blackheath/Greenwich or other SE London areas where people are actually begginers? Thanks
I would suggest looking on the Run England website, these groups are aimed spcifically at beginners alongside starting the Couch to 5km training programme. Personally I would defer your marathon entry for a year as you are likely to injure yourself going from zero to marathon by April next year...
Charlotte - If you start now and build up slowly you'll be able to complete the marathon. What are your goals for the marathon? Just complete it? or run it in a specific time?
As Elizabeth has suggested - Run England will have a lot of listings for local clubs but why not start going along to your local parkrun. There may be some clubs represented there or could you ask for a recommendation.
Well done on getting into London.
If you can live in SE London, then the marathon should be nothing to you.
I live and love living in South East London thanks
