Plan Description

Our 6 Month Marathon Plan is great for both new runners, and those will a little bit of experience under their belt.

With 6 months to prepare, we focus on very gradually increasing the weekly mileage at a manageable rate, so you don’t end up burning out.

If you have 6 months or more before your marathon, this is an awesome plan.

Ideally you should be able to run 2-3 miles without stopping before you begin this plan, but you can choose to adopt a run/walk strategy too!
