Ultra 100 Mile

Training Load By Week
Training Load By Week

The schedule is designed with the "newbie" in mind and reflects the bare minimum training to complete your first 100-Mile endurance run. The 100-Mile training builds upon the 50-Mile training so ideally you will have completed a recent 50-Mile followed by a 4-6 week recovery period recovery period before starting the 100-Mile training. A few of the smaller ultra distance races will teach you the "mental" things you will need to know to get through your first 100-Miler.
