Distance 50 Mile
Level Advanced
Length 8 weeks

Welcome to the 8-week Advanced 50 Mile Training Plan! This plan is built for people starting with a higher level of fitness and who have some experience running ultramarathons. Over the next two months, we’ll build on top of the fitness you’ve already achieved and tailor it specifically to the 50 mile journey. There is a mix between endurance building work and some consistent, strategic interval training that will help to make you feel stronger and more efficient at “race pace.”

While there is also plenty of intentional recovery built in, this training plan is challenging and will push you out of your comfort zone at times. For those with less experience or who want more time to prepare, we also have a 12-week 50 mile plan on the Freetrail platform.

If you have specific questions or need suggestions for modification, join us at Freetrail Office Hours, where a Freetrail Expert will be happy to help. Freetrail Office Hours are available to our Freetrail Pro members.
