Trail Running Training Plan

100 Mile Ultra Plan | 60-70 Miles a Week | Advanced


"It's not what you get from your training, it's what you become from your training"


Built for athletes that are looking for an all encompassing plan to help you run your best 100 mile race. This plan is higher ‘mileage’ and is a term used loosely in this plan. Once you breach the 50 mile per week mark we start to look more at hours and time on feet – less on getting in specific mileage numbers. Included in this plan is a progressive strength training routine.


Created by USATF Level 2 Endurance Coach and athlete Andrew Simmons. This plan is built on the knowledge gained from years of coaching, and 10+ years as an amateur elite runner (36+ Marathon or longer distance race finishes). Andrew has a passion for coaching that is evident in not only his personal performances but in the success his athletes see on race day.


This plan is designed for success on any terrain This 24 week plan has progressive blocks to help you build up to be the strongest athlete you can be. The strength training included will help you tackle long weekends with back to back days. Testing your skills before race day is key so this plan includes a 50K and 50 mile/100km race in the build up. Don’t plan on racing in your build up? Not a problem – there is an optional secondary workout for those weekends. This plan will best serve an athlete who has previous experience and is looking to step their training up to a new level. This plan is HR and Pace based and utilizes a flat time estimation of 10:00/ mile.


All workouts are HR based and will adjust as your zones are adjusted in each fit test. This plan focuses on time on building your aerobic capacity and also includes specific endurance workouts so you can test not only race strategy but your race day nutrition and hydration plans. The long runs live on the weekends. This plan can be set to start on any Monday and will run for 14 Weeks.


Before you jump in you should be able:
  • A previous 50M or 100KM
  • Be confident with strength training
  • BE knowledgeable on Nutrition and Hydration strategies for long distance races
