Ultramarathon Coaching FAQs

What is an ultramarathon?

An ultramarathon is any race longer than the standard 26.2 mile marathon. This encapsulates 50K, 50-mile, 100K, 100-mile, and 200-mile races. Additionally, an ultramarathon can also include timed 24-hour races or stage races that take place over several days.

Do ultramarathons take place on trails or roads?

Ultramarathons usually take place on trails, in the mountains, or on packed gravel surfaces. However, several ultra races are held on tracks or roads.

Is running an ultramarathon good for me?

We think so! A better question to ask could be: Why do I want to run an ultramarathon? If you know your why, running an ultra distance can be very good for you. Of course, we address the health of every athlete, and we do our best to prevent injuries before they happen. Our goal is to set you up for success—however you define it. as an ongoing thing, not just a one time event.

Do I need to run a marathon first?

Not necessarily, but it depends on your running experience, fitness level, and additional health factors. When you work with a Trail Transformation coach, we customize a training plan for you, which might involve running a marathon distance.

Where do I find an ultramarathon?

Ultramarathons have grown in popularity in the last few years. There are hundreds of ultramarathon events held around the country; chances are there is one near your hometown. If you have questions about a particular race, ask your Trail Transformation coach. We’ve run many of the current races and have coached athletes through just about every distance.
