Two sessions (worth $100) will be held at Dairy Farm. But participants in the Invitational Marathon will get these FREE of charge.

Training On Trail

Training in trail is best, according to F1 Runners Team trainer Lexus Tan, 41, who is the organiser for the marathon. He says that this is because trail running is pounding on softer ground and helps to develop lower body and ankle strength, plus it reduces the risk of injuries on the knee.

Added Lexus: The majority of runners usually pound on flat tarmac ground. By doing this, you are always pounding on one contact point, but trail running is pounding on undulating terrain and your foot placement changes with the terrain.

The trainer explained: This helps runners to change their foot placement under ‘no choice condition’ and helps to distribute the stress acting on one point on the knee – thus reducing injuries.

Orientation Runs

Orientation runs of 25km, 30km and 15km will also be organised – to enable participants to get used to the race route and terrain.

There will be three sessions taking place at MacRitchie Reservoir and Dairy Farm and will be held in January, February and March.

Further details on the training will be given to participants.

The 100 Marathon Club Austria – Invitational Marathon is organised to welcome to Singapore, Dr Anton Reiter, of the 100 Marathon Club Austria.
