How do you get started?

It's easy, the first thing you need to do is set your goal to complete the marathon. You register and begin running under the guidance of a parent, adult, coach or teacher six weeks prior to race day.

You have six weeks to complete 41 KM. Keep track of the KM you've completed using the Kilo-Clocker.


You can run/walk a little or a lot, do what you are comfortable completing.

The most important thing is to pace yourself, you want to be able to run the final 1.2 KM on race day.
