We wouldn’t ask you to run a marathon or participate in an athletic event if we weren’t prepared to help you do it! Experienced athletes who have completed marathons in the past should be able to complete the event without extensive training.
Before you start any sort of training, be sure you are well-hydrated, are wearing good running shoes and that you have adequately stretched.
Always consult a physician before participating in strenuous exercise. If you become short of breath or are fatigued during training, stop and rest.
