Running the TCS New York City Marathon? Visit the TCS New York City Marathon Training Program page to learn about our custom training program for this race.
Get race ready—for any marathon—with us! We’re here to help you start training like a pro with a virtual training program that’s customized just for you.
The NYRR Marathon Training Program is powered by the dynamic, data-driven platform RunTrix. You simply supply some information about yourself, and receive a tailor-made training regimen customized to your fitness, experience, and lifestyle. 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 help get you and keep you on track.
Sign up for one of two virtual training program tiers, with one including access to a personal NYRR ecoaching option with an expert NYRR coach who will be available to answer all your training questions and concerns.
Let us take you all the way to the finish line!
|Program||Virtual Trainer||Virtual Trainer Plus|
NYRR’s Virtual Trainer is a fully customizable day-by-day training program that adapts to your changing lifestyle and training plans. Simply supply some information about yourself (age, gender, current training schedule, recent racing stats, etc.), and receive a tailor-made, flexible regimen to guide you. The best part? If you need to move your long run and/or rest days during any week, or if your race paces change at any time, Virtual Trainer will automatically adjust your training plan.
Keep on top of your workouts with training plan reminders delivered in daily or weekly emails, expertly prepare with race-strategy tips, and stay motivated by becoming part of the NYRR Virtual Trainer Facebook group—where you can engage with other runners experiencing triumphs and challenges en route to the same ultimate goal: crossing any marathon finish line.
Virtual Trainer Plus
With this tier, you’ll have access to all the components of Virtual Trainer, plus you’ll receive direct access to the NYRR coaching staff. The NYRR coaches will review your training plan with you, be available via email throughout the program to answer all your training questions, and provide one-on-one motivation to help guide you. You can email your coaches for advice on pacing, nutrition, gear, race tactics—or whenever you need some encouragement.
