How to Prepare for Your First Trail 50k

For those who want to break into the ultra marathon world a 50k is a good distance to start with. If you’ve run a marathon and are currently injury free then a 50k is very do-able. In fact, we have a beginner 50k plan over on our website that’s 20 weeks in length and based on 4 running days per week (and cross training of course).

If you’ve recently completed a marathon and are looking to do a 50k you likely won’t need to start from scratch with your training and can simply jump into a training plan the appropriate number of weeks out from your race.

In some ways, training for a 50k is very similar to training for a marathon. The aim is to build on your endurance base and support structures through easy runs, hills, long runs, and core/strength training. It can also be beneficial to sign up for a marathon three weeks out from your 50k to use as a final long training run before you go into the tapering period. Continue Reading →
