Centurion Running


At Centurion Running we don't believe in off the shelf training plans, however we recognise that not everyone wants or needs full one to one service either. Training Plan + was created with this in mind, a personalised training plan and the coaching assistance to help you make the best decisions for your running.

It is available to runners of all abilities and focuses on working towards the 50km and 50 mile distances, with Centurion Running events as the primary focus. Whether this is your first ultra or you are an experienced elite runner pushing for the top spots, Training Plan + will provide an individualised path for your goals. 

You can start training anytime towards your goal race, the training plan will be shared with you almost immediately and will take you all the way up to your goal event.

Your coaches, Robbie Britton and James Elson, have almost 20 years of experience between them, in helping ultrarunners of all abilities reach their best. Training Plan Plus is a system we feel can make remote Centurion ultra-marathon coaching accessible to runners aiming for 50km and 50 mile distances whilst maintaining unrivalled quality of service.

For £55 a month we will provide you a training plan via the Final Surge platform (snap shot below) delivering daily sessions built around your work/life commitments. Alongside this, you will be granted access to the Centurion Community Coaching Facebook Group. This will be the area for all questions, tips and advice via your coaches, as well as regular Q&A sessions and video resources. There is no one to one coaching or email exchange between the coaches and the runner on the Training Plan Plus service, all of the advice and communication is via the facebook group.

A sample training plan week, each session is built around your schedule and goals. There are detailed notes for every session.

Robbie and James are both UK Athletics qualified running coaches. In addition, Robbie has an MSc in Performance Coaching from the University of Stirling. Between them they have nearly two decades of experience working with a vast range of athletes covering all disciplines under the broader heading of ultramarathons. Both have represented Team GB numerous times in the 24hr discipline and between them have run almost every type of ultra event you can think of.
