For the 3rd year in a row, participants in the 2013 Cadbury Marathon will receive complimentary use of the Marathon Guru program.
Marathon Guru is an online training program that provides the athlete with an intuitive training schedule for their running events. It is a predictive system that estimates the athletes race time based on their training output. The marathon training program adjusts throughout their training cycle according to the response of the athletes ability to cope with the speed/workload of training prescribed.
If the athlete is unable to keep up with the training times prescribed to achieve their initial Marathon Goal race time it re-adjusts the session times and provides the athlete the slower predicted race result that the athlete will achieve. On the other hand if the athlete is exceeding the training times suggested the program will adjust to a quicker tempo and ultimately predict a quicker Marathon time.
