Fosters Law Kent Coastal Marathon and Half Marathon joint initiative with the University of Kent

 

 

Fosters Law Kent Coastal Marathon and Half Marathon are pleased to announce they have teamed up with a ‘Psyching Team’ to provide psychological support for our competitors

We believe our race will be one of the first marathons in the UK to bring sport psychology support to our runners before, during and after the race in this format.  Dr Carla Meijen from the School of Sport & Exercise Sciences at the University of Kent said “The Psyching Team is there to provide mental support to runners pre, during and post-race, to ensure they enjoy the race as much as they can. We will be offering practical tips on how runners can achieve mental strength and – as a symbolic gesture – handing out small pieces of finishing line ribbon for runners to reunite with the finish line when they complete the race.”

Race Director Jon Holl said “Every runner spends time preparing physically, fine tuning their nutrition and knows the psychological element of a race is equally important.  Until now, only elite runners have been able to avail themselves of professional assistance in their mental preparation and performance”.  We are very excited to be one of the first marathons this side of the Atlantic to offer this free extra support to our runners.  The Psyching Team will be easily recognisable in their bright orange ‘Psyching Team’ T shirts at the more challenging points on the course, to ensure competitors perform to their best and enjoy this great event.
