Well done Marrit and Katy on completing the Manchester Marathon. After months of training the hard work is over and its time to put your feet up. Great effort!!

Most people would be forgiven for skipping boot camp and concentrating on long runs in preparation for the Marathon. But not these two, the girls not only put in the miles and long runs in training , they also kept up training aT boot camp sometimes twice or three times a week.

When people complain in future of tired or stiff legs after a tough leg session, I shall be referring to these two warriors who just get on with it then chuck in a 16 mile run once a week.

The Motiv8 team are proud of the pair of you and look forward to hearing what you made of the big day.
