Tarawera Ultra Marathon
Training Plan

Thursday Training Plan: Tarawera Ultra Training Plans

The Tarawera Ultra Marathon is an iconic trail run and the 20km & 50km distances are a great introduction into the event and world of trail running.

Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full Marathon distance events and my success coaching hundreds of runners.

Starting 24 weeks before the Tarawera Ultra (on 27-Aug-18), this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week includes 3 runs and a stretching session. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).

Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.
