Running training schedules

BHF Heart Runners running up a hill

It's important to listen to your body and find a good balance between training, rest, work and play. Rest and recovery is just as important as training.

Beginners training schedules

These schedules will suit new starters with no previous running experience, or no previous experience in running that distance. So if you've run a 5K before but want to train for a marathon, there's a schedule for you.

Intermediate training schedule

These training schedules are designed for people who have had previous running experience. If you've run a 10k before and now want to train for a marathon, or you've completed your first running event as a beginner and are looking to improve your time, these plans will suit you.

Advanced training schedules

These training schedules will suit runners who have completed a number of running events in the same distance or very close. So if you've completed a 10 mile race but want to train for a half marathon, there's a schedule for you.
