Frequently Asked Questions


  • How are The Run Experience Programs different to other training programs?

    The Run Experience programs are complete training plans. That means you are walked through everything you need to do and you will learn the how and the why of all the widely varied drills and workouts.

    We train our runners as athletes. Every runner is unique and our goals, abilities and needs vary. Spreadsheets are great. But they don’t account for the many variables that most of us encounter within any given training phase.

    This is all about you.

    You won’t just be physically prepared for your race, but you will also learn to optimize your recovery and mobility, assess potential injuries and address them, among a host of other skills you’ll refine as you learn to tune into your body.

    If you are still unsure, we will be happy to recommend a program for you.  Let us know what your goals are, if you have a target date to achieve them and anything else you feel may be relevant. Just send an email to

  • There are so many choices! How do I choose?

    Yes, there is a lot!  We aim to provide training and supplemental programs to meet the needs of all our runners in various situations and stages of experience.  We also have supplemental programs to complement some of the full training plans or to use as a stand-alone and add as needed into your existing routine. These are great for in between races or during an off season so you don’t lose all the hard work you have invested in your training.

    Assess your goals. What do you want to achieve? By what date do you want to accomplish your goal(s)?

    We are here to support you. When you purchase a program or sign up for a Training Club membership, you are a Run Experience runner and your goals are important to us. Helping you choose the path to get there and supporting you along the way is the reason we are here.

    Our support is part of your training package.

  • What is the 30 Day Challenge?

    Our training plans are designed to be flexible to help our runners of varying abilities and levels of experience achieve their goals.  The focus is on the principles behind the training and putting the recipe together for a healthy, strong and successful runner. If you usually run more days a week or higher mileage than your program prescribes, you can add in additional running days or just add the extra miles to bring you to where you are comfortable.

    We have members ranging from beginners to very advanced and talented athletes who enjoy great success following the same program.  If you need help getting started with adaptations like this, please contact us by emailing and one of us will be more than happy to get you set up.  You can also post on the Facebook Group.

    We would strongly encourage you to keep the main focus of the workouts for any given day incorporated into your run though.  If you have drills within the day’s run you really want to keep them in there. The training plans have been carefully crafted by our coaches and each workout is strategically planned and placed where it is for a purpose to produce optimal results.

    For strength training you will see that many of our workouts offer alternatives to accommodate you if you are returning from injury, find the moves too difficult or if you are just a super hero and want to go for the advanced option.
