WHAT IS THE RUNBOSTON DIFFERENCE?

  • RunBoston is an out of the box turnkey system that allows Boston marathon runners to self organize, self execute and prepare for the Boston Marathon on their own time, proving a more efficient and cost effective solution for organizers.
  • Runners won’t need to waste time seeking in person lectures. RunBoston Provides on-demand learning through an online portal that is completely self-paced. It’s time efficient for them and it is the next best thing to hiring a personal coach.
  • Some marathon runners are still using internet files, Google documents, spreadsheets, and PDF files to view their programs and workouts. Yikes! NO MORE!
  • The RunBoston training program is powered by TrainingPeaks a robust training and coaching software that allows the runner to manage the program and keep track of completed activity for analysis, and stay up to date with a mobile app and daily email.
  • The RunBoston program was developed by experienced and certified coaches including Tony Rich, founder and managing director of EventHorizon endurance sport and 16x consecutive Boston Marathon Finisher. They received input from several subject matter experts on the program design and nutrition guidance.

HOW DOES THE COURSE HELP BOSTON MARATHON RUNNERS?

  • The 4 Newton hills of the Boston Marathon course after mile 16 pose a unique challenge for Boston Marathon runners. The program prepares runners for those hills.
  • Running downhill in the Boston Marathon can result in fatigue later in the race. This is called eccentric loading. The program is tailored to prepare Boston Marathoners for eccentric loading.
  • The training incorporates targeted volume and periodization scientifically determined to maximize running economy over a specific goal time.
  • Determine how to derive accurate Boston Marathon prediction times based on your fitness throughout training and into race execution strategy.
  • Receive a Boston Marathon workbook of calculators, dashboard and tools including a Boston Marathon course adjusted pacing calculator.
  • Receive instruction and tools on how to formulate a Boston Marathon race execution strategy (tapering plan, pacing plan, pre-race nutrition plan, race nutrition plan).
