Running London Marathon is an amazing experience.

Each year close to fifty thousand runners take to the iconic streets of London to fulfil their lifetime dream.

How many times, since you were a kid, have you watch the masses run the marathon on TV and thought

“I wish I could be there. Heck! If the 101-year-old Sikh, the exoskeleton man or the girl running as a Rhino can run London, why can’t I?”


Year after year those “I'm going to run London” thoughts passed you by, but you’re not getting any younger, so next year HAS TO BE YOUR YEAR!


A marathon is a long, long way, and could be 26.2 miles of pain, if …

✋ You’re not ready to follow a few simple steps to start running now

✋ You’re not willing to find a few hours each week to get outside and to train this winter

✋ You think you’re past it, don’t want to be challenged to see what you could actually achieve!

Then running a marathon and QuickStart to Marathon Training Success is not for you.
In fact nothing much can help you get off the couch to run run and it’s best you give up on your marathon running dream.


But if that’s NOT YOU ... If you’re the exact opposite … If…

👍 You’re NOT willing to settle and let life pass you by.
👍 You want to FINALLY get started running with a plan created for a complete novice like you.

👍 You’re determined you’re going to DO THIS, to get running, train for the marathon to run the race of your dreams.

Then I have some terribly exciting news for you...

I’m Helen, The Cheesecake Runner and I help non-runners get started, stay motivated to get trained and get prepared to run their first marathon.

It wasn’t long ago that I was starting out, nervous and unsure about whether running London was a step too far crazy running dream. I took the plunge, started running and I’ve not looked back.

I’m now a running and nutrition coach, and this year ran my 14th marathon and I’ve got more races booked next year.


I am certain that following the information, support and advice in QuickStart to Marathon Success, will help you to get started this autumn, so you can finally realise your marathon running dream next year.

This is not a flimsy promise. I know because I have seen it. Not just once but over, and over, and over again for the thousands of runners I have worked with over the last few years training for their first marathon.


Helen helped me after I got a place to run London. I was new to running and found everything I Googled confusing. I was really anxious as I hadn’t run much and I’d never ran a marathon before.

I was confused about running plans, pace, what food I should be eating, warming up, cooling down, pretty much everything!

Helen put me at ease, explained my plan and the running jargon for me, and spent time reassuring me and I was going to be ok. What Helen doesn’t know about running and helping new runners isn’t worth knowing!

Instead of feeling stressed and anxious, after I was excited, confident in my plan and my running.

Thank you so much Cheesecake Runner!

Reanne, ran London Marathon, 2019

I just wanted to let you know I ran my very first full marathon last Saturday.

I am not a fast runner by any means, but my goal was to finish and feel good through the race and after, not feel like I could hardly make it to the end.

It was amazing! I had good nutrition and felt great!

I owe it all to you! I followed your Marathon Fast Track Plan and nutrition advice.

Thank you so much!!!!

Tammy, ran Comrades Marathon 2018

When I started training for my first marathon I was a complete novice and clueless about running.

I loved that your marathon group was personal and the weekly live video broadcasts in the Club were an opportunity for me to ask my questions. It was great that I could get my questions answered and use playback if I couldn’t make it live.

Your marathon coaching has given me a much better idea on how to improve my running through doing different types of training for my marathon and not just going out for long runs.

Being in the Facebook community it was nice to know I wasn’t the only one with my questions!

This is the moment of truth with three paths diverging in front of you...

You can decide to do nothing. Follow your friends advice, who all think you’re mad to start running as it’ll be bad for your knees. Wondering if you will ever realise your marathon running dream.

How does that feel? I think we both know. It’s like admitting that you’re giving up on your marathon running dreams.

You can gather your wits. Forget your friends, you’re finally going to do it, you’re FINALLY going to train to run your marathon! You’ll find a plan, not tell anyone what you’re doing and decide to go it all alone. You’re smart, you’ll figure it out. Just how difficult can running a marathon race really be?

Surely better than option one ... But? But better is not what you’re looking for. Amiright?

OR, or you could join QuickStart to Marathon Success, to get you started running from scratch this summer, to give you the confidence that YOU CAN DO IT and that running a marathon isn’t such a far-off crazy dream at all!

The choice is yours to make.

Are you up for running a marathon next year?

I am really busy, how much time will running take?
I’m not going to beat about the bush here … training for a marathon takes lots of hard work, commitment and energy. When you get into peak training you’ll need to find time to train 3-5 times per week, including weekend long runs (or up to 3 hours) and strength and conditioning work. You’ll also need to factor in the time required to plan, prepare and deliver your charity fundraising events, which are an additional time drain. But you won’t start out running that much! The first part of your training, with QuickStart to Marathon Training Success you’ll need to find about 30 minutes 3 times a week to get outside and to run.
