Welcome to Mile2Marathon.

We are a team of professional athletes – led by Olympians Dylan Wykes & Michael Woods. Our athletic endeavours have provided us with an unparalled wealth of knowledge and experience. We want to translate all that went into that endeavour – goal setting, discipline, motivation, perseverance, and a big dose of modesty, into coaching you – to support you in meeting your potential. Your journey to achieving your athletic dreams starts here with Mile2Marathon Coaching.

The How and Why of what we do.

We have received experienced, personalized, hands-on coaching throughout our athletic careers that has allowed us to excel on the world stage from mile to marathon, from running to cycling. We believe that runners of all levels should have access to a similar coaching experience. Through ensuring that we get to know our athletes, based on personal feedback and regular online consultations, we tailor individual programs by considering your personal strengths, abilities, and goals. Our training plans are not computer generated, nor based on cookie-cutter training templates. We aim to offer you a truly personalized coaching service. We believe this is the only way to help you improve and reach your goals.

    by mile2marathon"Consistency is the key to success in endurance sport. Running does not have to be fancy, there is a lot to be gained from building a really strong aerobic engine. There is no one workout that is going to make you great. Setting up athletes to succeed over the long term, with some goals along the way is the best approach." –  @dylanwykes ⁣ ⠀⠀⁣ Head on over to our stories to learn more about co-founder and 2012 Olympian, Dylan Wykes.
