Marathon Running Plans

Global race data suggests that only 0.17% of people alive today have finished a marathon distance. If this is the kind of exclusive club you want to be part of, then fire up one of our 16-week training schedules. Any attempt to cover this distance requires commitment, dedication and both mental and physical endurance and determination, and we reflect this with the training. These plans aren't designed to be easy. (The sub-4 will see you cover over 1,000km) They are designed to condition your body to be able to go longer and quicker, all while expending as little energy as possible.

Put everything you've learnt in your running journey together here. Build strength in the quicker runs, push yourself mentally on the weekend long runs, and make sure to take your recovery seriously to avoid injury.

Sometimes the first weeks of training can feel the hardest, especially if you've had some time off, but 8 weeks in, you'll be looking forward to your 3 hour weekend runs, we promise.
