    Hi. I have been training a marathon runner (endurance) and that is as much about mentoring as it is about coaching. He has just been selected to run for Engaland in September, yet I cannot seem to get a coaching course to suit my needs as club coaching is not the idel scenario for Marathon road running. Can you help?

    Hi Ron, to become a licensed coach you should consider taking the ‘Coach in Running Fitness’ qualification. Contact England Athletics to sign up.

    However, this is an entry level qualification and your needs in terms of becoming a good coach to Marathon Runners are best met through informal coach development such as attending conferences, workshops and getting involved in the England Athletics National Coach Development Programme.
