  • How long is one training session?

    In marathon groups, the duration of training sessions are: Tempo and sessions — 1:30 hours Long run — 2-3 hours

  • What does my current level of running have to be to prepare for a marathon?

    We recommend to start preparing for a marathon after you have completed a half marathon. If you haven't finished one yet you can choose 10K distance. During the first session, our coach will evaluate your running and tell if you will be able to run a full marathon or 10k.

  • What happens if I miss a training session?

    One or two missed sessions are not crucial. We will send you homework for independent training. But if you are traveling to another city where one of our branches are located at, then you can train there.

  • How will I find a group on the first workout?

    We will send you detailed instructions and a phone number of our coordinator from the Headquarters to you by email.

  • Is the payment for the race registration included in the cost?

    No, you have to buy the slot yourself through the website.

  • Could I go through medical examination before the course begins? Or is it better if I do it after?

    You can ask all the questions to the doctor at the presentation of the program. It is better to go for an examination after two or three weeks of training, in order to see how the body reacts to the load.
