If your goals are to get faster, run longer, build more muscle, or even to lose weight, you may want to consider adding stamina runs, tempo runs, speed runs and more to your training routine.
An estimated 506,000 individuals completed a marathon in 2018. Among those finishers, nearly 40% of them were first-timers! While many of them may have followed a running plan for races that were not as long, training for the marathon is a much different task. For starters, the time commitment is significantly longer. Not just the number of weeks (typically 16-20 weeks), but also the amount of time spent training each week. This can be a daunting task if you don’t have the correct marathon training plan to follow and guide you through it. Our free marathon running plans are the perfect training guide for beginners and advanced runners alike. So whether you’re chasing a PR or finishing your first marathon, we have a plan that is right for you!
