Expert advice, month-by-month calendar listings, top event information and more

Have you been hatching plans and creating goals for the months to come?

This guide is focused on the challenges presented by the marathon and half-marathon but, whatever your goal, the key is simply to have one in the first place.

“It’s paramount,” says marathon world record-holder Paula Radcliffe when it comes to giving yourself your own personal target to hit.

“Everybody has to have a goal. It’s important to acknowledge that goal, to put it somewhere where you’re reminded every day why you want to do it, why it’s important to you and what you’re working towards.

“It’s a tough journey and there are times when you are tired and you don’t really want to go out and get a training run done. But when you know what the goal is and you know what you’re working towards, it’s that much easier to get out and do it.”
