THE Half Marathon E-coaching ONLINE COURSE
E-coaching is the perfect solution if you’re looking for more support to reach your half marathon goals!
Having spent a lot of time scouring the internet for quality training material, I found a few different e-coaching providers that offer various packages and levels of support for your half marathon. Most of them seemed a bit too pricey, or didn’t actually offer ongoing support – they just send you training plans and ask you to get on with it. (Note: I give away all my training plans for free)!
That’s why I’m happy to share with you the e-coaching programs I’ve found over at Up & Running. We’ve teamed up with the guys at Up & Running to offer you their fantastic e-coaching service, at affordable rates! They have helped thousands of runners get half marathon ready!
They have developed a fantastic 12-week half marathon e-coaching course that takes you step-by-step through each day’s training, getting you primed and ready for the big day!
The big difference with the Up & Running e-coaching programmes is the un-rivalled support via the exclusive forum (responses are guaranteed within 24hrs on weekdays, 48hrs at the weekends).

What do other runners say?
If you’re someone who remembers the horrors of gym class, Up & Running offers the best possible solution. You have a personal cheering section led by the incomparable Shauna Reid and Julia Jones, both professional and passionate about engaging new runners; no one is ever left behind.
Up & Running was right for me because I didn’t have to commit to anyone else’s schedule. I planned my three runs a week and made it work. The course is delivered in bite-sized, just-in-time chunks. If you commit to the process, trust the U&R team, and use the forums to learn and support your running teammates, you will find courage and ability that you never knew you had!
Not only was Julia a safe harbour to unleash my insecurities about the marathon, she gave me a detailed plan that was fun and achievable. I was confident being under her experienced guidance. Julia was supportive, kind and always knew the right thing to say when I had a ‘Can I really do this?!’ moment. Thanks to her coaching, I not only crossed the London Marathon finish line but I did it injury free as well!
I ran my first half marathon in 2 hours and 7 minutes. It was not easy, and neither was the training. However, with commitment to your goal and the excellent support and guidance from Up & Running, YOU CAN DO IT! I PROMISE!
