Personalized Race Training Plans (iPhone)

*Currently available on iOS v8.0 with a Runkeeper Go subscription. For Android, see this article.

Tired of the doing the same half marathon plan year after year? Looking for more variety? We hear you! Our old training plans are a thing of the past and what we have in store for you is bigger and better.

**Important note: If you're currently enrolled in one of our old training plans, once you complete it, it will no longer be available in the app or on the website - sorry! Please keep that in mind if you're considering leaving your plan to check out the new feature. That said, these new plans are a big improvement and we don't think you'll miss the old ones!

PSA: Check out the new Video Tutorial section of the Help Center where you can watch a video demonstrating how the flow below works in real time!

Get Started!


- Head over to your My Plan tab.
- Toggle over from Goals to Training.
- Choose 'Train for a Race'
- Select your distance.

Marathon Plans


- Select the date of your marathon.
- Choose your time goal

Important note: You won't be able to adjust the end date of your plan once you've set it up. If you need to change the date, you'll have to end your current plan and create a new one - sorry about that!

Running History


- To accurately create a plan according to your ability, share with us your longest recent run (better to under-estimate than to over-estimate!)
- If you ran a marathon, tell us how long it took; again, better to under-estimate if you don't have that data on hand!

When Do You Want to Train?


- Choose the days on which you want to train, then we'll build your plan using all the info you've given us!

Get On Your Level!


- Choose the level you want to train at - easy, normal, or hard.
- When you've chosen your level preference, tap the yellow "Finalize My Custom Plan" button on the bottom of the screen!
- And there you have it - your personalized running plan!
