Don originally wrote his training programme for the runners of the Western Province but it soon became clear that there is a demand for a similar programme for runners based in Gauteng.  To this end, Don decided to adjust his WP programme and  he now provides a Gauteng  'flavoured' programme for those runners.

If you are from elsewhere in the country or from overseas, you can use either of the training programmes as a guide.  You will need to substitute Don's specified race with a local race in your area.
