About This Training Plan

Welcome to the Runners Without Limits Marathon plan for First-timers and Fun-time Finishers. This plan is for anyone who either is running their first marathon, or who HAS run a marathon before and is looking to have fun this time around. Time goals are not required, just a desire to get the miles in so you can cross the finish line with a smile.

At the start of this plan, you should be able to run or run/walk for at least 60 minutes, and have averaged 15 miles per week for the last 3 months.
Prior to beginning this plan, it is recommended that you have completed at least one half marathon.

Equipment needed:
Tracking Device: ie Garmin, Polar, Suunto, etc. that can track miles, time, and heart rate.
Foam Roller or other recovery device.
Resistance Bands for post-run strength.

What is included:
20 weeks of training leading up to your Marathon.
2 weeks post-Marathon for recovery in a separate plan, which you will have access to later.
Email Access to Coach Heather for questions at
Exclusive Videos for participants to include training tips, workout breakdowns, Runner’s Strength Sessions, and FAQs.

Happy Running!
