What if you could complete a marathon with minimal stress or clock a new personal best with just some simple adjustments to your training?

Run Smart uses cutting-edge research to reveal how preparing for and running marathons can be made easier. Whether you are a nervous novice aiming to complete the distance or a serious competitor looking to shave seconds off your sub-3-hour time, leading sports scientist and marathon veteran, Professor John Brewer is here to support your marathon journey.

Discover exactly what happens to your body during a marathon, learn about the importance of a good stride and how to pace yourself effectively and, perhaps most importantly, how to get yourself in the right mindset to ensure you reach the finish line.

Run Smart challenges many current marathon-running concepts, myths and ideas, and provides science-based alternatives in areas such as training and nutrition that will optimise and ease a runner's preparation for, and completion of, the 26.2-mile distance.
