Training runs to do before the marathon and beyond

Marathon day is now on the horizon, which means your months of training are about to be put to the test. But if you feel like slotting in some last minute training in the capital it's not too late. New Balance are hosting a series of runs that will give you some valuable training time along with the motivation that comes from not doing it solo.

They've partnered with GoodGym to curate training sessions that will get you closer to your goals whilst making a difference to communities around the marathon route. And if you want to keep up your good work post-marathon there's no reason why you can't, with weekly running clubs to help you stay motivated. Here are some runs you can get on board with before race day and beyond.
