Plan Description

A dedicated 52 week plan tailored for the unique demands of ultra-trails up to 100mile distance, written by experienced trail running Coaches from Arduua.

Designed for athletes with 4+ years of experience training for this event. Your goal might be to win your age group and stand on the podium.

The training plan includes all workouts necessarily to prepare for a 100 mile Trail race (running, strength, mobility stretch etc.), and will be added to your Trainingpeaks account.

All running sessions are based on time spent (rather than distance), and how hard it is for you (measured by heart rate).

All the running sessions will be automatically downloaded to your training watch, and your training watch will guide you through the training.

All strength, mobility and stretch sessions, have a description and a link to a video.


Requires a training watch compatible to Trainingpeaks >> app and an external chest band for pulse measurements.
