Catoctin 50K Training

Starts April 18th in Frederick!

Are you gearing up for the Catoctin 50K? Join our ultra marathon training group to ensure you're ready to race your best on July 14th.

We'll meet twice a week for 13 weeks for runs and learn about hydration, trail running, easy runs, recovery runs, hydration, nutrition, injury prevention and much more along the way. Weekday runs will consist of hills and track workouts. Saturday morning runs will be trail runs on the course, unless weather forces us to stay on the roads.

To safely meet your goal we do ask that you have completed at least one marathon distance and have a strong base level of running under your belt. We ask that you are able to run at least 10 miles before the start for the program. The Catoctin 50K race is geared towards the experienced ultra runner. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions regarding whether this training program or the race is a good fit for you.

This session will start April 18th and end July 14th.
