Things to Consider when Choosing Which Marathon to Run

Training for a marathon is a big commitment but it does not need to be stressful if you have a good training plan and the right resources to run it.

In this post I want to give you the basic resources to face a marathon effectively.

Let ‘start.


Even though it seems like a silly point, often people choose a marathon as a challenge with friends or for charity reasons, which is great. We find however that timeframe isn’t often considered in this decision process.

The standard amount of time needed to prepare for a marathon usually falls around sixteen weeks, assuming a good base level of fitness.

Although it is possible to train for a marathon in 6 to 8 weeks, firstly it is not going to be as enjoyable, and secondly you increase your chances to develop injury.


Location is another aspect often underestimated as three important factors are not considered;

  • Climate (temperature, humidity and so forth)
  • Terrain
  • Altitude



Running a marathon is a big life commitment. During your training you will need to take time off some of your most enjoyable activities as well as social life to run your mileage. And not only, you will need to allow yourself time to RECOVERY, EAT WELL AND STRENGTH TRAIN.
