Training Plan

Below you will find a downloadable file for our Triple Crown Challenge Training Plan. This is a miles only plan developed by our RRCA Certified Coach, Christina Simon. It is intended for those who need some guidance in how to appropriately build up mileage for this series.

This is a 3 day a week running plan. It can easily be made a 4 day a week plan by adding a short/easy recovery run or walk on the Sunday or Monday following the long run.
