The Rocky Run has been gaining popularity in downtown Philadelphia since 2014. Today, it's one of the biggest races in Philadelphia. The race offers three options for distances: the 5K race (3.1 miles), the 10-mile race, and the 13.1 Italian Stallion Challenge (5K plus the 10-mile race). Whether you're participating in your first Rocky Run or you run it every year, Custom Training Plans can help you get ready for your race. We've teamed up with professional athletic trainers to design customized Rocky Run training plans that factor in race-specific course features, distance, and your current fitness level.

Rocky Run Training Plans

The Rocky Run races start in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, home of the steps Sylvester Stallone made famous, and weave through the city along the Schuylkill River. Other than Mount Drago at the 4-mile mark, the course is flat, fast, and scenic. CTP’s training plans are developed with the assistance of professional trainers. This means that every one of your workouts is designed to help you build the power you need to reach for your goals, whether you want to beat your half marathon time in the Italian Stallion Challenge or finish the 5K without walking.

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.
