For runners to build and manage personalised 5k to marathon training plans
RunPlan helps you to organise your racing and training calendar. Used as a personal running coach you can choose a personalised marathon training plan or a 5k training plan. If you’re getting started try the Couch to 5k plan. Keep your race calendar up to date!
How many weeks until your next race? Add races, time trials or your planned parkrun events to your plan to have an easy place to go and see your list of races and get a countdown to the date. Fill in a target time and we’ll show you the pace required to hit that time. Add extra information such as race start time or location as needed. You’ll see your next race on the homepage. Select 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon or alternatively enter your own custom race distance.
Your list of running sessions is the main feature of the application. Here we have key details of your runs such as warm-up, the main set, cool-down and of course the date along with the training type and total estimated distance. Estimated distance is used to calculate your total weekly running mileage, including race distances, which is displayed on top of the screen. This should help plan out a sensible weekly load. Save templates to avoid regularly entering the same information.
Build out your own running plan or get stuck into one of ours. Personalised running training plans are available for all levels of runners. Select from Couch to 5k, Improver’s Plan, 5k Training Plan and Marathon Training Plan. Couch to 5k will get you started with a standard running plan that takes you from a mix of jogging and walking, up to 30 minutes of steady running and ready to take on your local parkrun. The improver’s training plan builds from 2 runs per week up to 4 runs per week and is tailored to you based on your current 5k pace. There is also a 4 week repeatable training block suitable for all levels for runners who are used to running regularly and want to add some structure to their training. This plan is also good for 10k training, half marathon training or marathon training. For a longer term plan try the marathon training plan which builds up to a target race pace over 16 weeks.
