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!

"I used your program for the recent ING 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!"Joe K
"I finished in 5:33:47. I was right on target. And it was just like the coaches said: Around mile 20, I started passing a lot of people. The second half of my race was only about a minute slower than the first half. I tell you, the marathon training plan is magic. Well, not really magic, because I know a lot of knowledge and experience went into developing it. But it resulted in a day of magic for me!"Carolyn T
“It was an amazing experience that I couldn’t have had without the plan. It brought me to the start line healthy and confident. I had a strategy for the race that brought me to the finish. Coach John is the best.”Tom M
“Thank you for everything. Yesterday was truly a GREAT experience. I more than accomplished my goal of finishing under 4:00:00. When we started in June, my total running experience had been less than two months, and I had no idea what to expect. After following your program I felt very confident throughout the race and knew how to handle what my body and the conditions were telling me. You guys did a great job.”Rob P
“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.”Aimee R
