Goal Race Distance
100-160 kilometers (60-100 miles)
Trails with significant vertical
In life and in ultrarunning you only get to step into the unknown so many times - one such step is making the jump to the 50-mile, 100-kilometer, or 100-mile race distance. We know better than most just how scary that leap of faith can be. Whether this is your first time stepping up to the 50-mile plus distance or you’re an experienced ultrarunner looking for a little extra direction, my program should help you get to the start line healthy and celebrate at the finish line. This training program is designed to work with your life, not against it, because let’s face it you are not a runner who “humans”, you are a human who happens to really like running. Our goal is to get you to the start line ready to face the unknown - and we’ll do that by building your training progressively from where you are at today working to help build fitness and then dial up the specificity for your race.
This program is ideal for athletes who have at least 12 weeks to go until race day, or at a minimum, 8 weeks to go but are coming in with a good foundation of training. Think of this as me saving you the brain tax of figuring out what to do each day. Finally athletes that have the ability to run at least 4-5 days a week will find the program the most sustainable.
