Looking to get fit? Want to lose weight? Need some motivation? Searching for the perfect gift for the “runner” in your life? Want to take part in the Silvesterlauf – but just need an extra push?

If the answer to any of the above questions is “yes”, then “The Marathon Pack” is for you! Recently launched in Switzerland the pack is a bit like a “first aid / motivation kit” for runners and comes in various permutations. Each pack  is laden with goodies to help you achieve your goals – not just with nutrition, but with motivation and inspiration too. Each one carefully thought out to help prepare you for your next race or simply to get or keep you running.

The Silvesterlauf is taking place on 13th December and you can order your pack until the 29th November on The Marathon Pack website to ensure you can register in time. Race entry only is available online until the 6th December. It’s a festive relaxed run but it could be just the push you need to get yourself ready for bigger things in the future and into a more regular running habit.

If you don’t fancy running yourself you could always buy the pack for a loved one, or indeed you could send a “Good Luck Pack” to a friend who is competing in a 10km, half or full marathon.

Or maybe consider the “No Pain No Gain Pack” which can help prepare you for your first 10K, half marathon or full marathon. Or there is  The Next Level” if you or a friend are going beyond the marathon, or perhaps you fancy the “Let’s Get Running” pack with a training book? Each one has a slightly different emphasis but if you want to choose something really customised then the “Custom Pack” could be the one for you. In each case you can fully personalize the pack with a message on the inside making it a much more meaningful present.

Furthermore the packs are not just “stand alone”. Beyond The Marathon Pack is an organisation passionate about running and all it entails. James Butland (above) started running a few years ago as a means to lose weight and be more active due to sitting behind a desk all day. Successful in his achievement, he now helps other runners achieve their goals through the packs. James is also organizing a Running Camp in 2016, and writes an online blog full of advice and help for all things running. Read here for more details. 

Other planned activities for “The Marathon Pack Community” include bi-monthly 5K runs starting in Zurich and expanding to other cities to motivate and inspire – see here for details.

The Marathon Pack is more than just a helpful resource for runners it can provide helpful inspiration and a way to achieve your fitness goals. So why not give someone you know a present with a difference?
