SQUADRUN is proudly the affiliated training partner for the Aon Whitianga Marathon, The Possum, Ring of Fire, Tarawera Ultramarathon, Ultra-Trail Australia and a number of other top quality running events across Australasia. They deliver tailored training programs for hundreds of athletes of all abilities.

For just $15 (+gst) per week there is no better value training partner you could choose for your road to the Whitianga Marathon. The SQUADRUN team is committed to helping you achieve your goals. They’ll be there throughout your training journey and on race-day to see you succeed.



SQUADRUN uses a ‘priority based’ training system to deliver a highly bespoke programme written specifically for you, with your fitness in mind. You get around 7 runs per week to choose from, ordered in importance by priority. Most athletes will select 3-4 of the ‘higher priority’ runs and plan their week around their busy lives, their jobs and family commitments. You decide how much training you can do and with the guidance of two of the most qualified and respected coaches in Australasia, you’ll be in great shape come race day. No set-up fee, no hidden costs and you can leave at any time.


Any coach or online plan can assign ‘work’ but there’s so much more to getting your training right than just going for a few runs per week. Nutrition, pacing strategies, running tips for improving your form, efficiency or execution come race day. The training programme is just a piece in a much larger puzzle. SQUADRUN will help you with all things running, and will be there to see you finish.


YES! This is a carefully constructed training system that determines exactly what YOU need to do to achieve a specific target. It matters not whether you are looking to complete your first race, or compete for a top 10 finish, the fundamentals of training remain the same. You aren’t paying for a program, you are paying for a service that comes with a program.


Sign up as part of the registration process when you enter Whitianga Marathon, or at a later date via your active portal for a one off 4 week coaching trial for $29 +GST.

Once you sign up, the SQUADRUN team will be in touch with you to get you started! After your 4-week training period, if you like the program, you can choose to continue directly with SQUADRUN for $15 (+gst) per week.


Run for good
