We have 2 different 50km Training Plans available based on your running experience, mileage and time goals:

The first plan (listed directly below) is our lower mileage option. The second plan (scroll to the bottom) is for higher mileage runners who likely have more experience (and time to train). All plan options come with both US and Metric measurement versions!

The 50km Beginner/Intermediate Plan (up to 50-60 miles per week): $12.99

This plan is for first time 50k runners or runners who typically run less than 50 miles per week. It’s a great plan for marathoners looking to move up to 50ks, or ultra runners looking to improve their 50k times. This plan tops out at 50-60 miles per week and will include challenging workouts to give you the best possible chance to reach your goals.

To start this plan, we suggest that you’ve been running at least 20-25 miles per week for the last few weeks, but have previously run at least 40-50 miles per week in the past. If you haven’t run a single week over 40 miles per week in your running career yet, we highly recommend that you take several months (or even a year) to build up your mileage base so you are consistently averaging at least 35 to 45 miles per week on a regular basis without any serious injury before starting this training program.

What you get:

  1. A 16-week calendar grid chart with everyday specifically detailed with a training workout. The plan progresses with periodized phases to build your fitness, speed and strength so that you peak for your goal race in 16 weeks time.
  1. All training plans come with a detailed guide to help you understand each type of run and give you advice for your upcoming training. Also included is a training zone intensity chart that visually defines key workout efforts.
  2. The Sage Running Strength Training Plan designed specifically for runners.

This plan is derived from the theories and practices of the most legendary distance running coaches and exercise scientists from around the world: Arthur Lydiard, Jack Daniels, Renato Canova, and Peter Pfitzinger to name a few. Unlike other “cookie-cutter” training plans that just list mileage and a general pace, this Sage Running plan gives you essential specifics on how to do workouts at the right intensity for the most beneficial training stimuli. Furthermore, it does not follow a strict 7-day cycle (like most competitor’s plans), because at Sage Running we believe some workouts take longer to recover from and adapt to. Therefore sometimes recovery running days are extended and shortened appropriately to give you an ideal boost in fitness.  Most other plans do not take this kind of periodization into consideration.

We realize that great coaching is both a science and an art – and we’ve used this philosophy (as well as knowledge gained from our own careers as runners) along with experience from coaching many others, to create a plan that emphasizes consistent, smart progression: A true Sage Running™ experience!

The 50km Advanced Plan (up to 65-80 mpw): $12.99 

This plan is for more experienced 50k runners or experienced marathoners who have run under the Boston Marathon qualifying standard. This plan tops out at 65-80 miles per week and will include challenging workouts to give you the best possible chance to reach your goals.

For this plan we suggest that you have already been running 25-35 miles per week for a couple of weeks and have previously peaked at at least 60-70 miles per week or more while training for past races. If you haven’t run a single week over 55 miles per week in your running career yet, we highly recommend that you take several months (or even a year) to build up your mileage base so you are consistently averaging at least 45 to 50 miles per week on a regular basis without any serious injury before starting this training program.
