Marathon Training Northampton

Train for your Marathon with Northampton Road Runners

Sharky - Marathon Leader

Are you training for your first marathon? Or you would like a bunch of mates you can regularily run marathons with? If so then join in with us.

Our marathon training is run by Sharky Cotters. Sharky is a member of NRR and the 100-marathon club. What he doesn’t know about running marathons isn’t worth knowing.

If you fancy running a marathon but need help preparing and avoiding common errors, then come and join in with us. We will help you prepare correctly.

We will provide a training guide, people to run with and where possible organised longer training runs (most of the time people will buddy up and do their own routes at times convenient to them).

In 2017 Sharky organised our first mass first timer’s marathon with dozens running their first marathon (see picture above). In 2019 NRR adopted the programme and we are now becoming the club you turn to when you think about Marathons.

If you want to talk to us about joining in please come along to our Wednesday club night and ask for Sharky, or email
