Training Programs

Throw away your generic training plans—get the dynamic and personalized Official NYRR Training Program! In NYC, you can supplement your online training program with NYRR Group Training, which offers coached workouts for all ability levels.

Unlike Other Programs

Other marathon training programs are neither dynamic nor flexible, and they don’t cater to your schedule. Our program uses proprietary insights from the NYRR marathon-finisher database and unique knowledge of marathon courses to get you on track. Let our experts take you all the way to the finish line!

Tailored to You

You can choose from two different program tiers—each one customized to your fitness, experience, and lifestyle. Purchase the tier that’s best for you, then input your age, gender, training history, race results, and schedule to start training like a pro for any race. You’ll be able to set realistic goals, and your online program will adjust as your fitness changes.

  • “I can't believe I was able to accomplish my goal of finishing the race under 3:55. Due to the training program, I was able to shave off 22+ minutes from my past marathon time of 4:15:30. I am so glad that I signed up for this training program. Thank you NYRR and all the coaches—it was a great experience.”

  • "I used your program for the recent NYC Marathon and thought the plan was fantastic. Best training program I have used to date. I loved how it was tailored to my ability. My program predicted a goal range of 3:09 to 3:15, and I ran 3:08!"
