Following the introduction of greener initiatives at the beginning the year, we are excited to be continuing our efforts to reduce, reuse and regenerate. As a result, we have partnered with JogOn. The JogOn campaign is founded on the principle to reuse and recycle perfectly usable running shoes and reduce the number of trainers reaching landfill sites.
Here at Front Runner Events, we have designed running plans for all levels of fitness. The Beginner plan is designed for your first-time runner looking to follow a plan to get them through their first Half Marathon.
Some participants run for more than just a medal and Kimberlee James is one of them!
Despite the colder climate and shorter days, keeping up training throughout the Winter can improve your health and give you the boost of energy you may need. But staying safe and being careful is a must for runners during the darker months!
If this isn’t your first event you will know from experience that preparing for a running event involves months of training, mental preparation, and the need for organisation.
With the Llanelli Half Marathon just around the corner, you’re likely to feel slightly apprehensive, regardless of how many events you’ve taken part in! So, we’ve come up with some tips that we hope will be helpful as you prepare to #runelli…

Having a plan on how you will tackle those miles on race day is always a good idea! That’s why we’ve come up with some tactics to help you #BeYourBest as you take on the Llanelli Half Marathon this September!
Tapering for a half marathon occurs in the final weeks leading up to the race. This is when you should start to reduce the miles and allow your body to have some rest. It is important you allow this rest but try not to lose the training fitness you’ve gained during the weeks leading up to now.
This year, our events are going greener than ever before by reducing our carbon footprint and minimising the environmental impact of our events. Over a number of years, several trials have been undertaken to remove all unnecessary waste and plastic, which has resulted in considerable reductions and improvements.
The goal has been to go a step further and make more improvements that will be clear and evident to all race participants and event stakeholders.
On the lead-up to any race, it becomes more important to prevent injuries whilst in training. After all, you don’t want to hinder your training plans or worse still, all your hard work going to waste! To help you stay in shape and injury-free when running read our tips…
