Melbourne Marathon 2017 Training Programs

Published: July 11, 2017

October 15, Run our City

This year we are offering programs to help our clients achieve their goal at the Melbourne Marathon (or half Marathon) this year. It is less than 100 days away and now is the time to get cracking with your training.

Training for any marathon is tough, long and at times lonely, whether it’s your first marathon or you’re trying to beat your previous best. We believe that achieving your goal is best done with a structured approach and team support. We have the aim of helping you enjoy the journey, perform at your best and not having breakdowns along the way.

These programs are designed by our Principal Physio, Marcus Pain, he is a Physiotherapist with a passion for running and is a keen runner himself, having completed many Marathons and Ultramarathons, he is also the Run Coach at Run Like Crazy Brunswick.

The Run Like Crazy Brunswick group is a great group of runners of all levels, with many training for this event, some for the first time, others have run many marathons before. Running with a group like this is encouraging, motivating and far more enjoyable than spending all those training hours on your own.

We have 3 levels available based on what assistance you want from us.

Level 1- The “I want it all” program

Level 2- The “Just a bit of help” program

Level 3- The “I just wanna run with you” program

Everyone wants or needs something different so we have programs to suit everyones needs, budgets and availabilities.

Best of all, is all services are provided by Physiotherapists, so Private Health Insurance can be claimed for the costs so we can get you to the finish line fitter, stronger and with less injuries*.
