Ace Your Next Race: Follow Our Training Guides
Anybody can get started running, but it takes dedication and smart training to see continuous improvements to your Personal Bests. Want to hammer those times and progress through the ranks? Our distance-specific training guides walk you through the necessary preparation for a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon and beyond:

The 10K is a hugely popular race for charity runners and elite athletes alike. Test your ability to combine speed and endurance.
This race brings a sense of accomplishment similar to a marathon, but with much less training needed!
Less than 1% of us will ever run a marathon. Learn how to finish the iconic 26.2 mile race: a true acid test for all distance runners.

The Team Behind Revel Sports
This is Revel Sports. A blog for runners about beating your best created by a group of three amateur club runners (Alex, Michael, Esme).
We used the conoravirus pandemic as an opportunity to get fit, get outdoors and get running. This blog is our passion project, a way to share our adventure as we discuss all things: running, fitness and tech. Want to beat your personal bests and push yourself to the next level? Let’s get to it!
The lead editor here at Revel Sports. It was Alex’s idea to take our post-club-run chats and try to build a website out of them.
He is responsible for dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s when any of us have something to post. (Basically: it’s all his fault)
A ferocious 5K powerhouse on his day, Alex is known for not understanding the meaning of the term ‘negative split‘. That and his shocking training-wear choices.
Michael is a frequent contributor, which is a miracle to us as he quite literally runs for days with the rest of his time.
An ultra marathon specialist, Mike is the kind of guy who posts a 30K Morning Run on Strava before we’ve had our breakfast and prefixes it with the smart-assery:
“Guess I wasn’t feeling it today.”
He runs like he writes: slow with bits flying everywhere.
Esme is a frequent contributor who manages to stay much more neutral on these pages than she ever manages after a glass of wine at club night.
She is a 5K-10K specialist, albeit one with over twenty half-marathons under her belt.
Esme divides her time between a busy career, two kids, yoga, pilates AND a busier race schedule than anybody else can manage on Team Revel Sports.
