This week Neil and James discuss a topic which will be relevant to so many runners currently training for a spring marathon – tapering.

In addition to discussing the rationale surrounding different types of taper for differing situations, we also look possible reasons why athletes often fall ill during their taper, a common frustrating problem.

James mentioned Equinox24 at the beginning of this podcast episode, and forgot to elaborate on it before the end…

We’ve heard great reviews from various runners about this event from our friends at Racetime Events. On their website they describe it as:

The Equinox 24 is a 24 hour mixed terrain race against the clock. The event is open to all abilities: whether entering to run solo or in a team of 2-8; whether you aim to win or just to take part, this race will be exhilarating, testing and rewarding with a great atmosphere. The 10k route will take you around the Belvoir Castle Estate, on completing your lap you will hand over to one of your teammates or if solo keep on running!

You’ll find the Equinox 24 physically challenging and mentally tough but an amazing experience not to be missed. The event is based in the stunning grounds of the Belvoir Castle Estate in Leicestershire.

A weekend you will talk about for years, especially with those who share the weekend with you!
