GOING THE DISTANCE

The results are in! We created the shortlist and you chose the three lucky winners of 2018’s Big Marathon Challenge. Meet the three ladies who will receive unrivalled support and all the kit they need to cross the finish line of the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon…

Running a marathon takes dedication, determination and a positive mental attitude. It’s not easy to motivate yourself to go out and run during those cold winter months. It can be a challenge to find time to train, especially as the long runs get longer. That said, running a marathon can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Much can be achieved with the right training, nutrition and mental focus. And with the support of our sponsor, ASICS, and coaching partner, Full Potential, we want our 2018 team to discover exactly that…

Our goal was simple. Find three women who we could train, support and guide in every stage of their journey, whether they’re aiming to run a fast time, complete their first marathon or achieve a more personal goal.

From hundreds of inspiring entries, we shortlisted 15 candidates and hosted their profiles on our website. We asked you, the readers, to choose the final three winners that you felt deserved to win.

In November, the lucky trio were contacted and met for the first time for a photoshoot at the ASICS flagship store on Regent Street. Here the team picked up their winter training gear from ASICS, including shoes chosen by ASICS in-store experts following a gait analysis.

About Women’s Running

We all take up running for different reasons – to improve our health, lose a few pounds, raise money for charity, or perhaps because we drunkenly made a pact with a friend. But, whatever the reason, we all share the benefits of what running can deliver: inner strength, fearlessness, fitness, self-belief, self-esteem - the effects are countless. You only have to read this month’s cover star Viv’s incredible story to hear the effects of running. After undergoing a double mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis, Viv made the courageous decision not to have reconstructive surgery – a decision directly influenced by taking up running and the newfound body confidence this gave her. As we move into the New Year, confidence is going to be key to ensuring we reach our goals, whether that’s taking up running for the first time, upping our distance or losing weight (you can find plans for all three on page 32). Now is the time to harness self-belief and, to help you do so, we’ve got tips for you from life coach Steve Chamberlain. When you let go of limiting beliefs, you’ll be surpised how far it can take you, after all, as Chamberlian says, “beliefs are just thoughts we buy into, so it’s important we choose wisely!”
