ENG­LAND ATH­LET­ICS has launched a marathon train­ing pro­gramme with a view to rais­ing depth of per­for­mance in the event.

Plans in­clude two win­ter per­for­mance train­ing camps led by Nick An­der­son to be held in early De­cem­ber and early Fe­bru­ary.

“We are look­ing to bring to­gether the coaches and ath­letes who are at a stan­dard of sub-2:55 for the marathon or sub-80 half marathon for women or sub-2:28 and sub-68 for men,” An­der­son says.

The week­end events will fea­ture a mix­ture of train­ing ses­sions, coach net­work­ing and de­vel­op­ment ses­sions. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact An­der­son at: nan­der­son@ eng­lan­dath­let­ics.org
