The Poole-based couple have also contributed to The Purbeck Marathon Web site with training advice that is designed for different levels of runners. Martin and Liz run Yelling Performance, a sports coaching consultancy for individuals and groups. The training plans devised by Martin and Liz will help runners prepare for The Purbeck Marathon and The Purbeck 16 although they will still be tough races, even for the best prepared of runners.

Martin Yelling has represented Great Britain and is now a coach and running journalist. He produces the regular Marathon Talk podcast, founded the New Year Jantastic running challenge and is a co-founder of the Bournemouth Marathon Festival. Martin will be running The Purbeck Marathon.

Liz Yelling has represented Great Britain at the Olympic Games and is a Commonwealth Games medallist. Alongside her coaching she has contributed to running and lifestyle magazines and commentated on the 2012 Olympic Marathon for the BBC. Liz is tackling The Purbeck 16 in its debut year and she will no doubt discover that it is not an easy option.

Entry details are available on the race Web site at www.thepurbeckmarathon.co.uk where it is also possible to order souvenir hoodies and sign up to help out at the event

The race cannot take place without the help of many volunteers on the day. It is not necessary to run to be a part of this great and unique event.

This marathon is a community event, put on by volunteers in order to share the organisers favourite runs with you and to raise much needed funds for local charities and good causes. In 2014, they were able to donate £6,000 to these causes, a 50% increase on 2013.

If you would like to become involved, please contact info@thepurbeckmarathon.co.uk
