This training plan is meant for any runner going for their first 100 mile ultra endurance running race. The plan will prepare your body for the distance and focuses on gradual progression of running miles and total body strength. Developed by Bob Seebohar, a two-time Leadville 100 finisher (and 2009 Leadman finisher), this plan emphasizes the right amount of running combined with smart cross training and recovery to get you to the start line fresh.
This plan is meant for a new ultra runner who is training for their first 100. This can be a beginner or intermediate skill level runner. The athlete should be able to run a minimum of 8 miles as a long run.
