TRAIL PURSUIT TRAINING

Training Plans & advice to make you a strong, confident & happy trail runner

Trail Pursuit 2022

WELCOME!

We are a community of runners exploring beautiful trails in the pursuit of adventure! Achieve your first 5K, your first trail marathon, the chance to improve on a time or distance or something in between.


These training plans are for YOU. We want you to adapt them, have fun with them, be flexible, learn, be challenged and grow as you count down the weeks to Trail Pursuit. 


We want you to be confident in your choices, know when to switch things around to get the best from your running and how to fit these plans into your life. They are designed to fit alongside your current routine so don't feel tied to specific days of the week, and never ever run if you're ill or injured just because it looks like you should on a plan!


A few notes on descriptions:


EASY: This is your easiest running. You should be able to hold a conversation for this effort, and you should always feel like you are able to do more when it's time to stop.  

STEADY: A little faster than easy pace, with a little left at the end!  

TEMPO: This should feel like you are pushing into harder pace. It should feel similar to 10k race effort without leaving you broken by the end!

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
