Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marathon Virtual race challenge I bought this a month ago as way to help motivate myself to run my first mini, and ultimately first marathon. It has been so awesome to see my progression, strength, and endurance continue to grow while I continue to gain more confidence. The plans are easy to follow, and I can’t wait to finish my next mile stone! Just 4 miles away from being half way through the challenge!

For this progressive challenge, do you run each distance separately beginning with the 10k and ending with a marathon? Or run a total of 26.2 miles?

Asked by: Tray
Hi! Thanks for your question! For all our challenges you will run each distance on the medal as its own separate "race", as you reach each milestone you can add the distance magnet to your medal. What is great about our challenges you also will receive a training packet to help and guide you through the marathon process.

Asked by: gigi
Hi Gigi, Thank you fro your question! We offer the training process for this product (tr-41199) for those who want to challenge themselves to run a full marathon, but might not be ready to do so immediately. If you want to run the full 26.2 in one short after you have received the medal you are more than welcome to do so! After your run, please feel free to post your time after you run the full marathon to our race recap page. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Can I set a date when I want to run the marathon or does this program have a certain start date? Do I let you know when I want to run it and then the training starts appropriate to that? Thanks,

Asked by: Annie
Thank you for your question! The distance challenges differ from our Virtual Races in that they are ongoing, without a specific start or end date. You can start whenever you choose, and once you're registered, you have unlimited access to the downloadable training programs and exclusive Facebook group until you finish! We're rooting for you!
