Training is now well underway for our three Big Marathon Challenge participants. We caught up with them to get an update on their progress…

Last month, Sophie, Caroline and Elizabeth – our three Big Marathon Challenge runners – were just starting to get to grips with their new personalised training plans, set by coach Richard at Full Potential.

This month, the team got the chance to meet up at Stars Gym, London, for a catch-up and training with Richard, who took them for a threshold session at Battersea Park Athletics Track. Their reward? Some brand new ASICS kit!

We caught up with the team afterwards for a chat, to find out how the last month of training has been treating them…


Richard Coates, Full Potential

Richard has been running since his teens and has completed over 30 marathons and ultras. He’s a UKA Level 2 running coach, so the team’s training is in safe hands.

Gareth Pashley, ASICS
