About This Class

Marathon running expert Dave Bird helps you avoid the biggest training mistakes even experienced runners make!

In this 30-minute class, he uses storytelling which is an entertaining and powerful way to learn. The key points stay with you longer than just absorbing dry facts and statistics.

He uses cartoon characters to protect client anonymity, but they're all case studies based on runners he's coached through his proven Marathon Time Breakthrough programme. 

In your class project you get the chance to tell your own story on the biggest marathon training challenge you’ve faced!
