Training Programs

Every runner is unique. And all runners deserve a training program that’s unique to them—one that can help them achieve their running goals no matter where they are starting from.
Throw away your generic training plans and get a dynamic, customizable NYRR Training Program that no matter where you are, will help you toe the starting line of your next half or marathon! 
Choose the NYRR Half-Marathon or Marathon Training Program to help you get race-ready for any half or marathon in the world. Or sign up for our TCS New York City Marathon, Airbnb Brooklyn Half, or United Airlines NYC Half Training Programs to gain access to customized programs offering course-specific and race-strategy tips for these races.
Located In New York City? Take your training to the next level by supplementing your online training program with NYRR Group Training, which offers coached workouts for all ability levels.

Unlike Other Programs

Other training programs are neither dynamic nor flexible, and they don’t cater to your schedule. Our program uses proprietary insights from the New York Road Runners marathon-finisher database and unique knowledge of marathon courses to help get you and keep you on track. 

Customizable to You

All of our programs are rooted in an online component called Virtual Trainer that allows you to train wherever you live. Different program tiers give our runners more interactivity and perks based on the level of support and experience they need.
Our training programs are powered by the dynamic, data-driven platform RunTrix. Simply supply some information about yourself (age, gender, current training schedule, recent racing stats, etc.), and you'll receive a tailor-made training regimen customized to your fitness, experience, and lifestyle. 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.
