National Cross Country Championships 2014

National Cross Country – Wollaton Park   After a couple of years of awful conditions at National Cross Countries – I still have horror filled flashbacks to Sunderland in February 2013, and the frozen mud-ice fest – the National 2014 at Wollaton Park in Nottingham was a welcome change to sunny bright, and definitely less muddy conditions!   Over the…

Runners try lots of things to get faster. New shoes. New routines. New diets. Without a doubt, the training I have received from Mile Marc has had the most significant and positive impact out of anything I have tried in four years of running.

“Marc’s positive enthusiasm should be bottled and distributed to coaches in every sport. He has a unique ability to keep people focused on their performance while making even the toughest sessions fun and rewarding.

“You expect coaches to check in with you from time to time, but Marc goes beyond the call of duty. His personal touch is sincere, and allows him to tap into what’s working and what needs changing, ensuring he can challenge your thinking and maximise the return from training and racing.

“My race times have fallen and my fitness risen ever since I started working with Marc. Most importantly, my passion for running has gotten stronger and stronger. I put a huge part of that down to working with Marc; he is without doubt the best kept secret in running coaching.”

Ben Evans :

I have been an elite marathon runner for five years. I have ten sub-3-hour marathons to my name, a top 150 finish at London and a 2.37 PB at Boston. I tried  different training plans, running techniques, equipment, physiological tests but found no way to improve.  Then I found Mile Marc.

Training with Marc has enabled me to reach levels that I hadn’t thought possible. He provides a comprehensive training plan tailored to my needs as a runner and gives me practical ways to improve. He takes time to understand me as a person rather than a time on a stopwatch and motivates me to take my abilities the next level.

I have always tried to run hard, but training with Marc has shown me how to run fast. I never want to look back.
