Running is the most tried-and-tested, scientifically proven, and effective approach to enabling people to lose weight, stay healthy, look good and feel great. Humans are designed to run – yet sadly the approach that worked for thousands of years has been lost. It's been lost in competition, "trying harder", "no pain no gain" approaches. The result is that the secret of the most effective, time-tested approach has been lost. Yet an overwhelming amount of scientific research is proving that the lost art of running easy is the ultimate approach to a healthy, energized and long life. It's time to discover this life-changing approach once again.Who is this course for?This course is designed for non-runners and those with some basic running fitness.

In addition to being one of the most desired bucket list goals, achieving a half marathon will change your life forever.So, who are we, and why do you want us to guide you on this exciting journey? Well, quite simply because we are ordinary people – like you. We have not won any Olympic medals. We don't hold any world records. You may be wondering why then we should be your coaches on this exciting journey. Well, it's because we are just like you – but, we have achieved extraordinary things. We've run over 100 marathons (42km/26mi), over 20 Comrades ultra-marathons (90km/56mi), and many more other ultra-marathons. And yet, despite all this, we are just ordinary people – ordinary people who have achieved extraordinary things. And that is what we want to help you also achieve.All too often running programs are designed by top athletes, Olympic medal holders. However, their bodies and their approaches are not suitable for most people. They follow what we refer to as the "try harder", the "no sweat, no gain" approach. Yet, while these approaches may win those skilled enough, a medal, they seldom become lifestyle approaches for the rest of us. Our approach, which is based on years of experience, and training (ordinary) people from all around the world, is called the Running Easy approach.The Running Easy approach is a unique, scientifically supported, tried-and-tested approach to running. Rather than try harder, it shows you how to run effectively by trying easier. Rather than pain, it's about enjoying. Rather than faster times, it's about fun times. We will show you how to run in a way that not only allows you to achieve your amazing goal but is so enjoyable it will make running part of your life.ImportantWhile this course takes a "running easy" approach, it nonetheless can be demanding on your body. So, if you are unsure of your current health, please check with your doctor before commencing the training.What have others said?"Wooooooooooooooooooooo!!! hellooo!! I am on the biggest high woooo!!! We just got home from Canberra (Marathon) today, and it's all very surreal... I couldn't help smiling the whole way it was funny. I had one official say to me "You're running a marathon, this is serious! why are you so happy?" Ha Ha. 6 months ago walking to my front door was an effort, I would never have believed I could do this! THANK YOU SO MUCH." (Michelle)"Craig and Nicky your support and knowledge and experience has been astonishing and I have loved every minute of the course. Anyone who thinks they can't do this, just drop by this course to get a different view. It's life-changing." (Nathan)"What can I say!!!!!! ;)...Last Sunday I ran the Sydney Marathon!...Woohooo!!!! What a high!! Craig and Nicky, it has been such an awesome journey and I want to thank you for the effort you've put in to make the course so interesting and enjoyable. Who knew that running could be fun!?!? :) Your passion for running easy is infectious - it will stay with me for the rest of my life." (Sally)"Let's face the facts - I'm no lean mean machine. I was born for speed, not distance. Decades on and I can hardly believe it - I ran a marathon! ...So what's the point of my story? Simple. If you have not run a marathon, you still can!... We (my wife and I) followed the Running Easy program and learnt how to. Yes. Yes, I can!" (Matthew)"We did it. I can hardly believe it, but I can now say we ran a marathon and it's a good feeling, an awesome, exhilarating feeling. Now I know why Craig & Nicky are trying to encourage so many people to run a marathon. The journey, the training, the race, the pain, and finally the glory is something I too encourage you to experience - you will never regret it." (Petra)"From couch potato to walking 5 miles on a daily basis in 2010, I wanted to complete a full marathon by the end of 2011. I was very sceptical about my abilities to complete a distance of 26.2 miles injury free... I just followed the running easy approach and the training plan word by word, day by day and completed the 2011 Chicago Marathon successfully... I recommended this book (and course) to a lot of my colleagues and friends since then. Thanks a lot to Craig and Nicky." (Sarma)
