It has been a busy year with quite a few running events and two international tours for GetRunning so far. Firstly Gaz took a group to the stunning 'Eternal City' Rome followed by one of the most prestigious races in the world, the Boston Marathon. We saw lots of stunning photos, outstanding results and special achievements.

New Zealand also delivered some really cool events such as the Tarawera Ultra Marathon, Motatapu and most recently the Routeburn classic. The World Masters Games have just wrapped up and It is always great to see our runners out and about, enjoying themselves and sharing their awesome achievements with us.

Entries for the ASB Auckland Marathon have opened on the 13th of April and we are very excited to offer our Race Day Package this year again. Not only a new website has been launched but the organisers are also looking at more exciting changes for the lead up and race day. Let's Run The City together! See below for package details.

We are now getting right into block 2 starting on the 6th of May for our Main Clinic as well as for the new 10K clinic. Beginner clinic will be starting on Tuesday the 9th of May.

Although every runner has their own individual level, goals, and challenges, it's great to see the progress they are make in a group environment. We cater for a full range of runners- from beginners, people returning from breaks or injury, right through to experienced half & full marathoners.

As we are coming into the season many of you may be preparing for a half or full marathon. This is a good time to start fine tuning your nutrition for race day. It's a good idea to not only be thinking of your race day breakfast but also your dinner the night before. This meal is just as important as your breakfast for topping up the muscles' glycogen stores so that you're firing on all cylinders on race day. You want this to be a meal that you've had before, and that you know you digest and tolerate well. If you're going to be out of town and will be eating out it's a good plan to try and find something you know you can replicate (to some degree). Aim for some protein, vegetables, and carbs that you know you do well with. If you have quite a sensitive stomach it's best to stay away from too much fibre, and spicy or rich food. Probably not the best time to try out the new Indian takeaway on the corner!

As for breakfast you should be practising having the same breakfast that you'll have on race day before your long runs by now. Everyone has different tolerance levels as to how long they need to digest a meal properly before running, and it may take some trial and error to feel like you have this sorted. You'll also want to be practising with the fuel you'll be using on race day in your long runs.

We have plenty of options here in the studio if you want to try some different options. Remember the golden rule- never try anything new on race day!!

That's it for now team... Check out our tours below and let us know if you have any questions.



Once again we are making the most of our home patch and getting right into the spirit of the marathon, come join us in Auckland!
