Get your marathon training right (16th Jan 2019)




We’re delighted to announce that we are hosting FULL POTENTIAL running coach Richard Coates for this special presentation, which will be followed by a Q&A. This workshop is vital for anyone training for a marathon in 2019! The presentation covers:

  • Effective training between now and race day
  • Race day preparation
  • How to fit marathon training into a busy life
  • Mental strategies to conquer training and racing gremlins

This is the first of a number of workshops we are hosting during 2019 to help runners with race training. It is suitable for every level of runner, and the lessons are also applicable to other race distances too. Keep posted for other workshops soon covering nutrition, physio, running form, and many more from experienced speakers

About Richard Coates:

Richard Coates is a coach and director at Full Potential, and is one of the UK’s leading coaches and industry experts.

Running has always been a part of my life and I’ve been running regularly since my early teenage years…  I’ve been inspired to run many races around the world that have included over 60 marathon and ultra-marathons. I love the camaraderie; outdoors environment and personal challenge of endurance sports so am currently training to better my marathon time down under 3 hrs whilst tackling an off road ultra in the summer with some time mountaineering in the Alps too. Since joining Full Potential in 2012 as a coach and director, I aim to share my knowledge and experience. I want to inspire the runners I coach to complete their own personal challenges and to enjoy experience through running and fitness. I take great pride in seeing my clients succeed. If they smile, then I do too!”
