Seasons 1 thru 4 of this podcast training group were a smashing success, so we will continue into Season 5 for those interested in training virtually for April and May 5ks, 10ks, marathons and half marathons. The program will be based on the principles discussed in the podcast and incorporate both the physical and mental training elements needed to help you run a personal best.



  1. Training options. We will have 3 "tracks" for the podcast program in season 5. Track #1 will prepare you for any goal half marathon. Track #2 is a speed development phase, focusing on 5K/10K speed, and then #3 is designed to prepare you for a fall marathon. We encourage you to choose peak races in September to December to take full advantage of these tracks.

  2. Training macrocycle. We will have a range of options within each track for first-timers and then intermediate and advanced runners, which will provide the day-to-day training schedule for you to follow on this training journey including easy runs, workouts, and long runs.

  3. Weekly training podcast. This podcast will be for members of this training program only. It will be in addition to our weekly Running Rogue podcast and include an overview of each training week + weekly workouts, training insights and tips for the week, and answers to questions from the group as they come.
    You can listen to a sample episode by clicking here.

  4. Tips on race strategy and tactics. As you finalize preparations for your goal race, we will help you hone in on a goal and pacing strategy to give you your best chance to achieve it.

  5. Running Rogue coaching platform powered by Final Surge. Members of the program will receive access to a private athlete club where they can access their training calendar, training resources, interact with Chris and Cate Barrett (his assistant), ask questions, meet fellow members of the group, and share success stories or challenges along the journey.


"This group has been awesome through the whole training cycle and made this a lot more than I thought it would ever be. I really enjoyed the time training with the group and look forward to continuing in the next cycle. It was one hell of a training cycle. I have never had workouts like that in any of my workouts and this plan made a huge difference. I can't thank you all enough. A 15 minute pr would not have been possible without all of this."

Note: To take full advantage of the group, we suggest that you already be running at least 25-30 miles per week.
