Fall Ultra Marathon Training
Starts June 17th in Bel Air, Frederick and Timonium!
At Charm City Run our goal is to safely train runners towards reaching their goals of finishing your first ultra, achieving PR and everything in between. The power of the group atmosphere makes the journey fun and enjoyable while encouragement from your coaches makes the long runs much easier.
Each group will meet twice a week for 16 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 at local parks, 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 10 miles at least once before the start for the program. Are you not sure if you meet these requirements? Don’t worry, ask the coach at your location on the information night.
NEW! One of our goals when we started this training group was to bring new ultra runners to the trail. That remains true today. We will tour the trails of the local and regional area and introduce techniques for tackling those trails, as well tips for running nutrition, equipment, and a flexible training plan that allows runners to progress at their own pace. We've also heard the call for more advanced training and a more aggressive schedule. To answer that call, we're adding an ADVANCED training plan for those looking to take their trail running to the next level. This training season, beginner, intermediate and advanced trail runners will be provided with specific training plans.
This session will start June 10th and end October 28th.
Target Race: Patapsco Valley 50K on Saturday, October 28th as well as any other race during this time frame.
