Complete an event for charity

As well as providing you with extra motivation for your training, completing an event for a charity will also give you access to support from personal trainers, sports massages, VIP post race receptions and help with your fundraising.


Enjoy it!

The last (and perhaps most important) thing to remember is to enjoy your training!

It’s a lot easier to stick to something when you enjoy it and once you do get into the habit of exercising and healthy eating, it will soon become second nature to you.
