Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, CB1 1PT

This panel event will explore the latest science and knowledge on marathon running and training. The panel will focus on the principles of marathon training and how to maximise your training results. The event will cover the use and application of scientific data, and how this can be monitored remotely. You’ll also gain tips on how to pace your marathon successfully. Finally, we will look at what happens when it all goes wrong and why runners ‘stop’. Additionally, the audience will learn how science is driving marathon knowledge forward from elite to recreational runners.

This event will be a series of short talks using interactive examples, followed by a panel discussion and audience participation through a Q&A session.

Dr Dan Gordon is an Associate Professor in Cardiorespiratory Exercise Physiology, at the Faculty of Science and Engineering, in the Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences at Anglia Ruskin University.
