A-ttention! After the application stage, when we whittle down our hopefuls to a final 50, Bootcamp comes next in the Target 26.2 calendar.

What happens at Bootcamp
We put 50 shortlisted runners through their paces for the day at Bootcamp. Our coaches Sam Murphy and Steve Smythe devise the day, which is designed to put your running to the test. However it's not about spotting the speedy ones: while we're keen to know your 5K time (which could be anything from sub 20 to 30 mins+), we also want to see your running technique and pacing skills too. We're keen to find out what gets you up and out of the door each day and what it would mean to stand on that Paris Marathon start line in April 2015.

ASICS Pro Team Physio Sarah Connors will also be joining us for the day to assess our Bootcampers' marathon potential and giving a masterclass on injury prevention. You'll also get the chance to have a gait analysis and receive one-to-one guidance from ASICS biomechanics experts to make sure you're running in the right running shoes to suit your running form.
