Free Training Guides

To help you get the most out of your events, we've put some training guides together. They are written by XNRG founder Neil Thubron, who has succeeded in some of the world's toughest footraces, and even won the 300-mile Yukon, where he faced temperatures as low as minus 22. Our guides cover everything from food to mental preparation - if you have any questions, say hello on twitterFacebook or email us at info@xnrg.co.uk.

These guides are free for you to download and share - enjoy.
