On My Feet Melbourne Marathon Program
With the assistance of Australian former marathon world champion Rob de Castella, On My Feet has developed a marathon program that provides successful applicants the opportunity to receive training from outstanding marathon coaches, undertake educational courses, and participate in the Melbourne Marathon.
The program has been built around developing fitness, strength (both physical and mental), discipline, self worth, a sense of purpose, and confidence as well as a sense of camaraderie.
In October 2016, two of our Perth participants flew to Melbourne with two volunteers who had coached them through a training program. All four completed the Melbourne Marathon.
