Event details

As the official education partner of the ABP Southampton Marathon we are delighted to offer participants and partners the opportunity to hear from Solent academics on how to prepare, boost and sustain your performance. From how to reduce the risk of injury to looking at what constitutes a good diet, our academics will cover a variety of topics to help you reach your maximum performance.

Our speakers will address the audience from 6pm and include:                                                                            

  • James Steele, Senior Lecturer Applied Sports Science, who will discuss ‘Resistance training for endurance performance: it may not work the way you think it does’.
  • Dr Ali Hill, Course Leader Applied Human Nutrition, who will discuss the subject ‘How to avoid hitting the wall - nutrition for training and race day’.

There will be the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments and networking with other marathon participants at this event.

If you are unable to make the early start you can still meet with our experts by attending the post event drop-in which starts at approximately 7.30pm in the Spark Atrium.

Spaces are limited and offered on a first come first served basis.
