Make Me A Marathoner

TRR will be launching our 5th Make Me A Marathoner Program in preparation for the Cadbury Marathon on 12 January 2020

The aim of the program is to support and encourage 4 Tasmanians to achieve their marathon debut at Cadbury.   Our program includes a personalised training program, ongoing support and advice from accredited coaches, and loads more!   Most importantly the program will provide participants with an experience that will change their lives and perceptions of what they are capable of.   They will also have the support and encouragement of the entire TRR community on their marathon journey.

We’ll be calling for expressions of interest in August so keep your eye on our Facebook page for details to follow.   You never know it might be your turn to get the Golden Ticket!
