Hansons Marathon Method, 2nd edition

Run your fastest marathon


In Hansons Marathon Method, the coaches of the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project reveal their innovative marathon training programme that has helped thousands of runners become true marathoners and smash their personal bests.

Hansons Marathon Method tosses out mega-long runs and high-mileage weekends - two old-fashioned running traditions that often injure and discourage runners. Runners using the Hansons' method will gradually build up to the moderate-high mileage required for marathon success, spreading those miles more sensibly throughout the week. Running easy days mixed with precisely paced speed, strength, and tempo workouts, runners will steel their bodies and minds to run the hardest final miles of the marathon - and finish strong.

In this new second edition, the Hansons' programme welcomes newer runners with a new Just Finish programme featuring a simple schedule of easier running and lower mileage. The book answers frequently asked questions, shows how to integrate flexibility and strength work into your training week, and shares the most effective recovery methods. Using the Hansons' innovative approach, you will mold real marathon muscles, train your body to avoid the wall, and finish strong.

Luke Humphrey is head coach of Hansons Coaching Services and a member of the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project. Humphrey holds a B.A. in Exercise Science, an M.S. in Exercise Science, and is a Certified Clinical Exercise Specialist with the American College of Sports Medicine. Humphrey is also a professional distance runner with top 10 and podium finishes in major U.S. running races, as well as two-time qualifier for the Olympic Trials.

Kevin and Keith Hanson are elite running coaches and co-founders of the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project. Kevin has earned multiple Coach of the Year distinctions in recognition of the performance of athletes racing in his programmes.
