Arizona Trail Race 300 Training Plan released

I’m excited to announce our Arizona Trail Race 300 Training Plan has been published and is now available. This plan is designed to prepare an athlete to race the Arizona Trail Race 300.

This plan will physically prepare you to race for 300 miles and strategically prepare you to successfully cover the AZTR300 course. The plan covers physical training to build speed and endurance. It details preparation factors; bikepacking bike fit, equipment considerations and fueling. It also covers strategic factors; race strategy, managing the environment and AZTR specific course info.

This 12 week training plan is to prepare you physically and strategically to race The Arizona Trail Race 300.

This plan is available in PDF format only.
Once downloaded plans are non-refundable.

This training plan is a culmination of my experiences both coaching athletes, and racing AZTR300 myself. In 2010 I had a personal obsession with the race sleuthing out every detail I could find. In 2011 I completed the race with a winning time. My hope is this plan will prepare you to have the race of YOUR life at AZTR as I did myself. My race report is here.

I have special affection for the piece of this planet earth that the Arizona Trail traverses. The scenery is stunning and trail itself challenging. The Arizona Trail Association’s mission is to build, maintain, promote, protect and sustain the Arizona Trail as a unique encounter with the land. Become an ATA member to show your support.

I love the Arizona Trail!  The trail would not exist and AZTR would not happen without the efforts of the Arizona Trail Association (ATA).  LW Coaching will donate 10% of all AZTR plan proceeds to the ATA.

    I would love to do the Arizona Trail. I am not really much of a biker. I am more of a runner/slash hiker. I was wondering if you had any info or knew of any races or groups that hike maybe race the entire trail on foot? Also if I were to bike is there a group etc that I can go with.

    I recommend joining the ATA to keep up on groups and happenings with the trail. They have a lot going on.

    Have a look through the completed trail log here for a variety of ways to complete the AZT

    AZTR is the only race I am aware of. Last year there was one foot entry to the race. He DNF’d.

    21d14h16m is the fastest known time for running/hiking the Arizona trail
