Ultramarathon Training


The basic requirement for a 50 km-, 71 km- or 100 km-race is a Sub 5 hour marathon with at least three month of ultramarathon-specific training, or any ultra-distance equivalent to 100 km in 15 hours.


You can find detailed information about ultramarathon training, along with 14 different training plan for 50 km-, 70 km-, 100 km and 100 miles, in my book "Das große Buch vom Ultramarathon" Volume 3.
