Event Ambassador JODIE OBORNE, 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 her 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.


Below a training program for the 57.4km, which can also be used for 28.7km distance. Below is the full training program for both the Ultra and the 28.7km, commencing early June. 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..
