Silicon Valley Turkey Trot Training Plans

If you’re an avid runner in the Silicon Valley area, you might be familiar with the course. Both the 5K and 10K courses are centered around the downtown area and wind through the streets of downtown San Jose and Japantown. Once the route passes the SAP Center (home of the San Jose Sharks), the 10K route heads up and down Alameda through the Rose Garden neighborhoods before returning to the finish line. The course itself is flat and fast, and a Silicon Valley Turkey Trot training program that’s made just for you can help you get to the finish injury-free.

Preparing for the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot with CTP allows you to train at an intensity and pace that’s right for you. With Custom Training Plans, you’ll get a 12-week Silicon Valley Turkey Trot training plan that can help you get ready to race. Every cross-training, stability and mobility, and running workout is designed to fit you. Whether you’re running your first 5K, moving up to the 10K, or you’re reaching for a new personal record, trust Custom Training Plans to help you build strength and endurance with customized Silicon Valley Turkey Trot training.

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.
