TACKLING A DOWN RUN

 

Bruce worked with Chantal Carter-Jackson of CDS Nutrition and Exercise, to thoroughly update the exercise programme that helped take him to multiple winning form. Originally created by Tim Noakes, respected Sports Scientist, and Reg Park, former Mr Universe, it's a programme for all year round, not just before the ultra of your choice.
