Ready to run your first 50k in 2018?

The team 50 is a coached running program for beginner and intermediate runners in the Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton and Lower Mainland area starting January 2018. Professional coaching in run mechanics, nutrition, recovery and training methodology.

 

In 2016 we launched the first 50km training program. Noticing that there was a lack of opportunities for runners who were looking to bridge the gap from the 1/2 marathon/marathon distance into the ultra world, Jen created this hands on program to do exactly that the prepare athletes over a series of many months to achieve longer distance running goals.

Now being offered in it’s 3rd year, Team50 is unique. It requires commitment and investment from each runner to embrace the full journey of  adopting and learning correct, safe and affective training methods. Beginning in January, participants have the opportunity to select the race of their choice and train towards that very goal.  Each athlete follows their own day by day, week by week training program complete with full communication with Jen. No two athletes will follow the exact program! Instead, each runner’s training program will be designed for them based on their time availability, strengths, weaknesses and interests. We’ve added a weekly speed and technique session this year as well (see details below.) Team50 will also gather 1x a month (on Sundays) to run long and learn as a group. As the months go on, the run time increases. All weekend group trainings will happen in the Squamish/Whistler area. We suggest runners select a race that falls between July and October, 2018.
