Our best bit of advice: don't run a marathon without the proper training. We've done it and it's a sure road to injury. That said, in this section we have advice, tips and calculators to help with your training - training the right way. And we're adding more all of the time.
The most comprehensive set of Calculators anywhere!
The Running Calculators are one of our favorite sections of this website. Here you can predict your marathon time from your performance in shorter races (or vice-versa), calculate calories expended in various activities, use the age-equivalent results calculator to fairly compare your running performance to that of someone older/younger and/or of a different gender. -- And, don't forget the famous pace-band creator.
Enjoy these tools!
