Marathon Fitness Certificates

Our clinics are offering Marathon Certificates at a special price which includes your assessment and the doctor's certificate at your convenience.

We can also help if you’d like a head to toe physical before the big day, a resting electrocardiogram, a blood test to check your oxygen carrying capacity and even your oxygen saturation level.

See our Wellman and Wellwoman health screening pages for more information.

If you’d like a referral to a physiotherapist, help with pain relief and inflammation or just general medical advice, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Good luck!


How important is it to stay hydrated during a marathon?

Hydration is absolutely key to running safely. You can overdo it, however. Studies suggest that it is best to drink just enough to cover your thirst, to maximise performance and avoid overhydration.

Should I use special drinks or supplements on the day of the marathon?

If you have been using these items during your training, it is fine to continue. It is not advised that you try anything new on the day of the marathon that your body is not used to.

I am feeling unwell. How do I know whether I am able to take part?

It is important to monitor your healthy closely during training and on the day of the marathon itself. It is not advised that you take part if you are feeling unwell, especially if you have had a recent viral infection or bad cold. Always consult a doctor if you are unsure of your ability to run in a big event.
