The plan focuses on building your half marathon running specific fitness over 16 weeks so that by the end you are ready for your event. The plan is progressive but you can jump in at a position that matches your current training load if you are already training.
We will be sending out training plans for the next 12 weeks via email, if at any point you do not receive your email please contact us.
Do you have a story to tell? Most people will be fascinated to learn why you are taking part in this event, consider using the following types of media to reach more people.
Make full use of all types of media that are available to you. More and more people are using the internet and social media, so now is the perfect time to set up an online donations page.

Diabetes facts and stats
Throughout the weeks we will provide you with some statistics and information about diabetes to help your fundraising message have a greater impact
This week: If someone's diabetes is not well managed it can cause serious complications such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney disease, nerve damage and amputations.
On the sponsorship forms and on the online donations, your supporters will be asked if they would like to Gift Aid their donation. Please ensure that as many people as possible tick the Gift Aid box plus give their full name and address (postcodes are essential) as it allows us to claim an extra 28p for every pound raised. It doesn’t cost your supporters any extra to Gift Aid their donation.
