Event Ambassador BRENDAN DAVIS, UP Coaching guru, has provided training and nutrition tips and relevant information, in the lead up to the event and will be on hand at the event for last minute tips, sharing his own experiences and vast knowledge as well as being a prominent running coach. Keep your eyes on the website and the facebook page throughout your training to help you to stay on track.


For the 28.7k distance, below are the 3 stages of training, created and recommended by Event Ambassador Brendan Davies.


 1. Hardening the Chassis
 2. Fine-Tuning the Engine
 3. Watching your Gauges

Another UP Coaching guru, Jodie Oborne, has provided below a training program for the 57.4km, which can also be used for 28.7km distance. Below is part 2 of the training program, the last few weeks. For those taking on the Honeyeater Challenge you can use the 28.7km training guide but would not necessarily need to do an exceptionally long run, perhaps keeping the long run up to 90 minutes in duration. For all 3 events, don’t forget your parkrun every 2 weeks instead, with a good warm up and cool down..


 1. 57.4km Training Plan 2018

 1. Training Plans Weeks 5-11 (28.7km)

 1. Training Plans Weeks 5-11 (Ultra)


Both Brendan and Jodie will be on hand all weekend for race day advice.
