After illness or injuries, running.COACH automatically suggests a rehab plan, in order for you to slowly get back to your previous level.

it´s customised
and individual

Our training plans are customised and they adapt to your planned main competitions and competitions for preparation.

Your running experience and your current capacity are considered for the generation of your individual schedule.

After you having entered your basic information, you will get your trainings presented in a nicely structured way. The plan includes necessary information such as training form, duration, pace, as well as explanations on the goal and the purpose of a given session. Whether from the couch to 5k or on the way to your first marathon, running.COACH will support you on your way to your goal.

What runners think about running.COACH

Silvia Pérez

When I started training with running.COACH I found it hard to lower the intensity of each workout. But I continued because I believe that "less is more". With running.COACH I not only continue to improve my times and meet my goals but I feel strong and in very good shape. This is what allows me to finish a competition happy and keep on doing what i like the most: RUNNING!!

Geneviève Racine

running.COACH motivates me a lot. It helps me getting variation into my training, as well as adhering to my recovery phases after physical efforts. I know that, this way, I am capable of achieving my goal: to run the Berlin Marathon. Hence, for me, the decision to use running.COACH is a small investment for a big goal.

Paul Hügli

After struggling with several muscular problems for more than two years I am now back on track. Thanks to the structured and dynamic training plan from running.COACH I could steadily increase the work load and never lost motivation. After the first competitions this summer the hunt for new personal bests and other goals is to be continued.
