My First Training Plan
Running your first 50 km, 50 mile, or 100 mile ultra? These single purchase plans are for you.
You’ve signed up for your first ultra. Now what?
Our “My First Training Plan” is designed to take you to the finish of the race. These plans are ideal for an athlete who has been running intermittently and has completed one or two shorter distance trail races or even a road half-marathon.
If you’ve got bigger aspirations than just comfortably finishing a race, or your schedule is too complicated for a non-specific training plan, check out our custom training plan option.
50 km or 50 mile plan
Designed for runners new to the ultra-distances and preparing for their first 50, this is a 19-week training plan that prescribes daily workouts specifically designed to maximize performance.
This service is meant as a guidance plan for those who are a bit lost in their current understanding of what they should be doing to reach their 50k or 50m finish lines.
We also offer a Squamish 50 specific plan with tips and dates lined up especially for the Squamish 50. Also included are otherwise unpublished training tips along with Squamish 50 course specific tips. If the SQ50k, 50m or 50/50 are your goal, send us a note and we’ll connect you with the right plan!
