Rated 5.00 out of 5From: $100.00BEST FOR: Experienced marathoners looking for a PR PREREQS: A relatively healthy, injury-free body is essential; experience running at least one previous half marathon or marathon preferred; an established base of consistent running for at least the past 6 months; be able to complete a 10-mile run; preferred familiarity with more demanding workouts, such as tempo runs or negative-split runs, although we’ll help you through those. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 18
Crush the Distance, a marathon training program, isn't for the faint at heart; some days, you will definitely need to dig deep and shovel in some badass #motherrunner grit to get it done. When you do, you will be rewarded on race day with legs that are super-strong and able to tackle the distance with a vigor that surprises you.
Rated 5.00 out of 5From: $100.00BEST FOR: Runners looking to tackle their first 26.2, or a returning runner PREREQS: Logged at least 12 months of consistent weekly mileage; completed a race or two; having finished a half-marathon isn’t a firm prereq, but definitely helpful. At a minimum, you should be able to currently run eight miles comfortably and have no injuries. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 18 This marathon program is designed for runners looking to tackle their first 26.2—or somebody who is coming back from an injury, a pregnancy, or is more interested in finishing the marathon than racing the marathon. We’ll ease you into the distance but we’re not gonna lie: Training for a marathon is a big deal. This plan makes the path seem manageable. (Sorta like bagged salads make veggies at dinner doable.) Training to cover 26.2 miles requires consistency and commitment, especially on the weekly long runs.
Rated 4.80 out of 5From: $100.00BEST FOR: Well-trained and experienced marathoners PREREQS: Runners should have at least three marathons in the past three or four years; have established a solid base (long runs begin at 10 miles and the first week totals 27 miles); an injury free body. You will hit the ground running (literally!), so be mentally and physically ready for that reality. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 18
Point blank: 26.2: Obliterate the Distance is our toughest traditional running plan, and you should be well-trained and injury free to even consider it. It’s going to take some deep digging and dedication, not to mention a big investment in time.
We want you to have at least three marathons under your belt and a good base in those legs (read: at least five years of running). That said, if you’re after a BQ or a PR, this plan is your best shot. You’re going to come out of this program stronger than ever and ready to take things to the next level. You’ll run hills and mile repeats, hang in during tempo sessions, and spend plenty of time at race pace. You’ll also hammer out eight runs that are 15 miles or longer, but there are two cutback weeks woven into the first 15 weeks before you taper.
Rated 5.00 out of 5From: $100.00BEST FOR: Those looking to complete a marathon with no time goals in mind PREREQS: Some run/walk experience; completed a half marathon or two; the ability to run/walk at least 60 minutes straight; current weekly mileage from 15 - 20 miles per week; injury free and in the habit of strength training twice a week in order to protect against injury NUMBER OF WEEKS: 18
The 26.2: Run/Walk the Distance program is designed for those looking to complete a marathon with no time goals in mind: it could be your first go at the distance, you might be returning from having a baby, or you want a kinder, gentler way to tackle 26.2.
You’ll be training with incrementally longer running to walking intervals; you’ll start at 4:1 run/walk intervals, and build to 15:2 by race day, long enough to slow down at the aid station and fuel up and then hit the ground running again. We’re going to keep the paces easy on this one, but we’re going to make sure you get in the mileage you need for a marathon. Each week will also include one long walk, which is factored into the weekly totals, so keep that in mind when you see the big numbers. You'll definitely get that same high crossing the finish line as your running sisters taking on more aggressive plans.
Rated 4.50 out of 5From: $150.00BEST FOR: Beginner to intermediate runners who have their sights set on a 50 Mile race, likely on trails. PREREQS: Have completed a 50K within 12 months of starting program; no injuries, or are on your way to being injury-free—and willing to do the PT work you need to do to stay that way; have a nearby trail you can train on at least 1x/week (more is better); a nearby physical therapist who knows your body + your goals and who you can see regularly, especially in the thick of training; a foam rolling routine you will complete regularly (at least 3x a week); enough time to train and recovery properly (time to prepare food + eat well, foam roll, get adequate sleep) NUMBER OF WEEKS: 22
This 22-week 50 Mile program is designed for beginner to intermediate runners who have their sights set on a 50 Mile race, likely on trails. There are five to six weekly runs and two weekly strength circuits that build a strong, capable body + mind so you can go the distance, feeling solid and happy, on race day.
If you don’t meet them but are drooling at the thought of a 50 Miler, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll chat.
Rated 5.00 out of 5From: $140.00BEST FOR: Beginner to intermediate runners who have their sights set on a 50K run, likely on trails. PREREQS: Have run at least one marathon (road or trail) in the last year; been running consistently for at least one year; have a current mileage base of 20-25 miles/week for at least 8-10 weeks (plus your weekly long run should be in the 8-10 mile range); no injuries, or are on your way to being injury-free—and willing to do the PT work you need to do to stay that way; a nearby trail you can train on at least 1x/week (more is better); time to commit to the running program AND the strength circuits and weekly yoga. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 20 Each week, there are five runs (one is an optional walk); two strength circuits; one yoga session; and one rest day. Together, the combination builds a strong, capable body + mind so you can go the distance, feeling solid and happy, on race day.
Rated 5.00 out of 5$55.00BEST FOR: Experienced runners looking for a PR PREREQS: For at least the past month, you have run 30-40 minutes (without walking) at least 3-4 times per week; your total weekly mileage should be at 15, if not higher. Race experience, especially in a 5K, is very helpful, so you’ll know how demanding a full-on 3.1 miles can be. An injury-free body is also key; if you’ve got lingering issues that are on their way out the door, be sure to keep up the physical therapy and/or foam rolling to continue to encourage their exit. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 8
The focus of this 8-week program is to polish your speed, strength, and endurance so you can, if conditions allow, PR a 5K. You’ll increase endurance and stamina with long runs; strength with heart-pumping circuits and fun workouts; and speed with intervals and hill workouts.
$55.00BEST FOR: A new or returning runner trying to run the full 5K distance PREREQS: Able to run 20–30 minutes without walking at least 2–3 times per week. Race experience not necessary, but if you’ve pinned on a bib for a 5K or another race distance, cool. An injury-free body is key; if you’ve got lingering issues that are on their way out the door, be sure to keep up the physical therapy and/or foam rolling to continue to encourage their exit. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 8
The 5K: Run Program is designed to train you to run a 5K race (3.1 miles of awesome!). You’ll build endurance and stamina with long runs; build strength with heart-pumping circuits and challenging, fun workouts (no, that’s not an oxymoron); and increase your speed with intervals and hill workouts.
The 5K is the most welcoming and accessible running distance. Don’t let the shorter distance fool you, though: Running (and racing) a 5K can be crazy rewarding and just wee bit taxing. The good news? Training for a 5K can be as fulfilling as training for a longer race, but with less of a time commitment on your part.
$55.00BEST FOR: Those running for the first time or returning after some time off PREREQS: Able to complete a brisk walk or a run/walk combo for a continuous 15-20 minutes. Ideally you've been working out for 20 minutes a couple times a week for at least a month, however if you don’t meet the exact qualifications, no biggie, it will still work. This program is perfect for those who’ve never run before, are coming back to running from an injury, having a baby, or other running hiatus. If you have been injured, please stay on top of any prescribed physical therapy, foam rolling and other rehab techniques so you can stay injury free. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 12
The 5K is the most welcoming and accessible training cycle and race; the training program and race distance is perfect for those running for the first time or returning after some time off. As you train for your 5K, you will improve your cardiovascular fitness and overall strength with cross-training and other workouts that include hills (promise, they’re more fun than they sound!) and speedier sessions.
