“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.  - T.S. Elliot

If you've ever completed a marathon and thought, "Well, that just wasn't long enough," we have good news!  The Distance Project is a 16-week group trail-based training program designed for runners who are motivated to move beyond the classic 26 mile, 385 yard marathon distance and to the 50k (31.1M) ultramarathon.  Members will learn how to adapt to the increased mileage, develop the ability to run while fatigued, and experiment with the different nutrition and hydration needs of the ultrarunner.

Whether your goal is to simply complete the distance or to achieve a personal record, The Distance Project will help you to achieve your goal!  Our coaches recognize there is no one-size-fits-all approach to ultrarunning and will design a training program based on your specific goals and focused on keeping you safe, healthy, and ready for race day.

Members of The Distance Project should have a solid marathon performance (or more) under their belts and experience with the critical base-building that is required for marathon training.
