Austin Marathon & Half Marathon Training Plans

The Austin Marathon course runs a route full of hills, beginning with a climb of nearly 200 feet over the first two and a half miles. Many of this course’s river crossings provide relief, with flat, fast, and even sections that run along the riverbanks and through the city’s Town Lake Metropolitan Park. A CTP Austin Marathon training plan can help you get ready for the hills with workouts that include hill repeats and interval work that builds power and endurance. Our Austin Marathon training schedule prepares you for every hill on the course to help you reach the finish line on 2nd Street.

Getting ready for the marathon, half marathon, or 5K with Custom Training Plans in a great choice. When you use one of our Austin Marathon training plans, you can enjoy the running tour of Austin’s many attractions, like the Texas State Capitol building and the campus of the University of Texas. When you’re ready to get started with a training program that’s customized to both your needs and the course-specific features you’ll need to be ready to tackle, get your CTP Austin Marathon training plan, Austin Half Marathon training plan, or Austin 5K training plan today.

Our method

  1. Certified Coaches

    With the expertise of USATF certified coaches and physical therapists, we built an advanced model to weigh the effects of runner-specific variables on training outcomes.

  2. Custom Race Profile

    We analyzed unique characteristics of hundreds of races across the country to build a “race profile” into our model that accounts for elevation gain, altitude, time of year, and more.

  3. Training Plan Model

    Our model generates a unique training plan for you and your race, and all plans are reviewed by a coach and hand-tweaked before they make their way to you.
