    50K PROGRAM

    This 24-week 50K program is designed for beginner to intermediate runners who have their sights set on a 50K run, likely on trails. There are five weekly workouts, two weekly strength circuits, and two rest days. Together, the combination builds a strong, capable body + mind so you can go the distance, feeling solid and happy, on race day. THE PREREQS In order to thrive in the program, we ask that you have these prereqs:
    • Completed a marathon (road or trail) within 12 months of starting program
    • Injury-free (or almost there with regular PT and exercises)
    • 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)
    If you don't meet them but are drooling at the thought of a 50K, please email us at [email protected] and we'll chat.
