Plan Description



"If you start to feel good during an ultra, don't worry you will get over it" - Gene Thibeault

A Training Plan for athletes with the goal of completing the MG100 run.

Before starting this plan you will have been consistently averaging at least 30 miles per week, and it is anticipated that you are an advanced ultra-runner with considerable ultra marathon experience. You will be well versed in suffering, have excellent navigation and trail running skills, and be able to adapt a training plan to your local environment whilst considering the challenges your race will present you with.

This plan allows for two races in the build up (50k in week 14, and 50 mile in week 19) but these are not compulsory

This plan has a specific focus on building endurance and resilience, by pushing and testing you mentally as well as physically. It includes a 3 week taper prior to your main event.

The times in this plan are based around the finishing time of the 2017 finisher, average speed 3.25mph. If you are running on flat and easy terrain you may need to adjust the times down somewhat, particulalry if running on hard surfaces, to avoid injury and overtraining. However, it is expected that you will try to find an equivalent terrain as you will encounter at the Marji Gesick for many of your training sessions. 

Heart Rate Training when preparing for a technical ultra such as the Marji Gesick can be tricky at best. You will therefore find a guide in the description as to the intention of the session - this should be your main guide and your effort is best judged by percieved exersion, sometimes you will be trying harder, and sometimes easier.

Designed by Level 2 TrainingPeaks coach, and ex-elite racer Rob Lee, this plan draws on his substantial racing accomplishments (over 130 race victories, and numerous cycling distance records) and over 20 years of successfully coaching hundreds of athletes to their goals in road cycling, ultra cycling, mountain biking, triathlon, marathon and ultra marathon.
