Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course package start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! Each course is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. You can jump in at any point of any of the courses!
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. This also means that you'll automatically get access to course updates when I roll them out!
Who has developed the courses - and what qualifications do they have?
Hi! I'm Thomas Watson, and I've developed (almost) all the course content. As well as being a marathon and ultra-marathon runner myself, I'm a UESCA-qualified running coach. Since 2015, I've helped other runners achieve their distance running goals. The marathon training plans and strategies in this course are a reflection of the years of coaching, studying, and running I've completed. I've read every book and article I could find on running marathons, and have distilled the best of them into this course. I've also refined my approach to marathon training by speaking to and helps hundreds of marathon runners prepare for their run over the years. I'm constantly reviewing the best practices and coaching strategies in the wider running world, and I keep updating my courses to reflect these.
Do you offer refunds for the course?
We're super proud of the content of this course. However, if you feel this course isn't up to scratch, and it didn't help you achieve your running goals, write to us - all we ask for an explanation of why the course didn't meet your expectations, and some evidence that you've been in training (Strava posts, photos, etc.). This is both to ensure you give your race effort the best, and protect our digital content. Thanks!
How long does each course take to go through?
The material in each course is designed to last throughout your training journey - 3 of the courses over 6 hrs of video content and many other documents and reading material. The Motivation course has an introduction video then daily shorter check-ins. When preparing for a specific race, it's recommended that you review all the course material as early as possible on your training journey, then dip in and out to review individual topics as you need to refer back to them.
What kind of support is available?
You have complete access to the Marathon Handbook team, plus our huge, awesome community of fellow marathon runners-in-training! Upon registering, you'll recieve details on how to access the Facebook Group and Strava Running Club which form our community! Join the tribe and jump in with your questions!
What happens if I get injured or ill?
It's not the end of your (running) world!! Our courses guide you through the best way to respond to and recover from illnesses and injuries - we also explain how to adjust your training plan if needed after taking some time off to recuperate.
Can I find this information for free online?
Not really - 90% of the information we find on distance running is incredibly fragmented and incomplete. This is just the nature of distance running and how the internet works. This is especially true when it comes to ultrarunning, which isn't so well explored as half marathons and marathons. Yes, you can start trying to hunt out this information on your own, but you will spend hundreds of hours like I did looking in the wrong spots. This is 100% the course I wish we had when I started out. It would have saved me so much time and effort, it's painful to think about!
What format is the content delivered in?
The course features 6+ hrs of video content, a downloadable Training Plan (Google Sheets / Excel / PDF) and many more PDF resources. I've found that video lessons are the most effective way of sharing practical lessons on running - backed up by resources like checklists, training plans, and guides!
Is my credit card secure?
Credit card security is extremely important to us. That's why we've partnered with Stripe to handle the billing and provide a secure socket layer, 128-bit encryption. Frankly, your credit card data is safer making an online purchase through our secure site than it is using it to pay for gas or buy food at a restaurant. So feel comfortable knowing your transaction is 100% completely protected from fraud. We also offer PayPal as a payment method as well!
