WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Great bunch of people, great pace so we could chat. Ronnie was so knowledgeable about the marathon and running in general, so we gained some great tips. This run should be a fixture in any London marathon training programme. It got us really looking forward to the upcoming marathon, regardless of whether we were planning on running, volunteering or spectating. For those people who hadn't run the marathon before,it helped with their nerves, as they gained more of an idea of what to expect."

"Loved this run this morning 11 miles great pace, I'm not a fast runner it was a steady pace with enough stops to make it feel so manageable. Ronnie was fantastic looked after all of us and carried a heavy bag full of goodies loved it, would highly recommend. Made me think maybe I am a runner!"

AWESOME DAY RUNNING!
"Fantastically informative guide Ronnie was wonderful. She was able to give us so much information about the London marathon, plied us with snacks and encouraged us all to individually get we wanted out of the day. The best way to cover distance without feeling you’re doing so! This is my fourth or fifth event and all have been excellent. I strongly recommend them!"
