RunKeeper and The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon Partner to Help You Train
Leading fitness-tracking app, RunKeeper, is now offering its Elite members official full marathon and half marathon training plans from The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon’s RUN365 training program. Available on iPhone and Android, these custom-built 18-, 12- and 8-week training plans deliver a daily training schedule to help novice or intermediate runners train for either distance, or help advanced runners tune up for either race, focusing on pace, distance and strength.
U.S. marathon participation is swiftly growing year over year, according to Running USA, with a record 540,000 finishers logged in 2013, up 25 percent since 2005. With more and more runners training for marathon distances each year, RunKeeper is continually expanding on its core GPS tracking features, which empower runners to access statistics on their run—such as pace, distance, time, and calories-burned. Beyond being able to track activity, set goals, get motivation to workout, and track runner partner’s workouts, RunKeeper’s more than 40 million worldwide users can now access race training plans, including the official training plan of The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon, which support runners during marathon training.
The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon’s RUN365 official training plans outline daily activity goals, offering runners details on pace, distance, intensity and time. Plans also include guidance on rest, recovery and cross training, and offer customized workout plans for intermediate verses advanced runners.
The RUN365 training program from The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon has been active in the Bay Area for more than ten years, pairing trainees with USATF certified coaches in-person three days a week on a mix of long runs, paced runs, track workouts and more. Runners are supported with one-on-one coaching, nutrition and hydration guidance, and the camaraderie of their fellow trainees. RUN365 is thrilled to be partnering with RunKeeper to offer an extension of its in-person Bay Area training to Elite RunKeeper members, RUN365 trainees and 2015 San Francisco Marathon registered runners.
With RUN365 training plans at runners’ fingertips on RunKeeper, it’s now easier than ever to train for The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon full or half marathons—even if you have a busy schedule.
