Running is the most tried-and-tested, scientifically proven, and effective approach to enabling people to lose weight, stay healthy, look good, and feel great. Humans are designed to run – yet sadly, the approach that worked for thousands of years has been lost. It’s been lost in competition, “trying harder”, “no pain no gain” approaches. An overwhelming amount of scientific research is proving that the lost art of running easy is the ultimate approach to a healthy, energized, and long life. It’s time to discover this life-changing approach once again.

What will you learn in this course?
Who should take this course?
This course is designed for non-runners and those with some basic running fitness. So, whether you have never run before, or if you have some basic fitness but have always dreamed of running a half marathon, this is the most comprehensive, easy-to-follow course available.
Who are we?
Join Craig and Nicky, as we take you on a journey that will change your life (literally) forever, as we train you to run (with a smile) your first half marathon (21km/13mi).
So, who are we, and why do you want us to guide you on this exciting journey? Well, quite simply because we are ordinary people – like you. We have not won any Olympic medals. We don’t hold any world records. You may be wondering why then we should be your coaches on this exciting journey. Well, it’s because we are just like you – but we have achieved extraordinary things. We’ve run over 100 marathons (42km/26mi), over 20 Comrades ultra-marathons (90km/56mi), and many more other ultra-marathons. And yet, despite all this, we are just ordinary people – ordinary people who have achieved extraordinary things. And that is what we want to help you also achieve.
All too often running programs are designed by top athletes, Olympic medal holders. However, their bodies and their approaches are not suitable for most people. They follow what we refer to as the “try harder”, the “no sweat, no gain” approach. While these approaches may win those skilled enough, a medal, they seldom become lifestyle approaches for the rest of us. Our approach, which is based on years of experience, and training (ordinary) people from all around the world, is called the running easy approach.
The Running Easy approach is a unique, scientifically supported, tried-and-tested approach to running. Rather than try harder, it shows you how to run effectively by trying easier. Rather than pain, it’s about enjoying. Rather than faster times, it’s about fun times. We will show you how to run in a way that not only allows you to achieve your amazing goal but is so enjoyable it will make running part of your life.
While this course takes a "running easy" approach, it nonetheless can be demanding on your body. So, if you are unsure of your current health, please check with your doctor before commencing the training.
You should have a pair of comfortable running shoes.
