Sign up for one of two program tiers, with one including access to a personal NYRR ecoaching option.
Virtual Trainer ($29.99)
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 the Popular Brooklyn Half finish line.
Virtual Trainer Plus ($99.99)
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.
