Our Holistic

Training Plans

An Ultramarathon is different in many ways (see How an Ultramarathon differs’) and all of our training plans have been designed to take this into account.

Our plans are broken down into a 4 week blocks, with each block focused on a specific aspect of your training. Our team have built plans using their own experience, knowledge (and quite a collection of personal ‘lessons’) to help you fully prepare and avoid some of the pitfalls, mistakes and pain we have suffered on our own Ultramarathon journeys. Each 4-week block includes details on preparing physically and mentally, as well as ensuring your equipment is ready and won’t let you down on the day.

We’re passionate about sustainability at ultratraining.club and as a result we are really pleased to partner with trees not tees – participate in one of our ultramarathon training plans, and we will plant a tree for you. Once the tree is planted, a certificate and a picture of the young tree will be sent to our runners, along with a geolocation in the what3words format. Find out more at https://treesnottees.com/.
