Train for Knysna Half or Full Marathon

April 3, 2018

The Knysna Marathon is notably the most beautifully scenic marathon, with a vast section of undulating off road terrain, steep downhill’s and a hard flat final piece. It is definitely not the easiest marathon you can choose to run. Embark has set up a 12 week program that combines all the necessary training so that you can feel confident going into the race.

The Half Marathon is a FAST, downhill 21.1km race and definitely one of the best courses to run that sort after PB (personal best). Our training is focused on improving your downhill running so that you can have an overall faster time!

The training is fun and focused in a coached group environment.

How will the training work:
You will receive a weekly program that includes the group training sessions, and the individual sessions that you are required to do on your own. There will be three to four coached group running sessions per week.

The program is broken down into building phases of training. The mileage increases for 3 weeks and then we recover for a week, and then back in to building for 3 weeks until recovery week again. We will keep the training fun but challenging. We will explore Cape Town and all the running it has to offer.

If you are a new or beginner runner, or even an intermediate athlete, the Embark program and coached group training will inspire and motivate you to run your best marathon yet!
