  • Duration: 9 to 12 months

This is an advanced running training plan. It is not a triathlon plan.


This plan is for experienced runners only. It assumes the athlete has 8+ weeks of consistent run training prior to commencing the plan.  


The plan has a preparation phase (up to 36 weeks) and an advanced phase (12 to 16 weeks). Completion of the preparation phase will be adequate for most athletes to run an excellent marathon. 


The advanced phase is intended for elite runners who want to explore their marathon capability. These runners should move from the preparation to advanced phase approximately 4 months before their marathon. 


Athletes who already have 6+ months of consistent run training of 100km or more per week could commence the training plan at the advanced stage. Hence they may find the plan suitable for a 4 month preparation period for their marathon.


The final race preparation phase incorporates workouts from four Australian greats of the marathon running world. Lisa Martin, Derek Clayton, Steve Moneghetti and Robert de Castella.



It is assumed that the athlete has a minimum of 8+ weeks consistent run training prior to commencing this marathon preparation, and the participant is injury free and can complete a 90 minute run comfortably.
