Training Plan

Get ready to have your best race ever!

Training for a race like the Jabulani Challenge is completely different to the type of plan you would follow for a road race. With rocky terrain, technical single track, fire trails, creek crossings, bushland and steep hill inclines, you need to incorporate a whole range of different running techniques and specific training exercises to ensure you have a great race.

Whether you are a seasoned athlete or new to trail running, this 12 week plan will incorporate everything you need to get stronger, improve your mobility and increase your mileage at a safe rate so you can have a great race, without injuring yourself along the way.

The 12-week Jabulani Challenge Training plan includes a lot more than just miles! You will get;

  • A comprehensive week by week training guide specific to all distances – 12km, 22km, 45km

  • A mobility program to improve your natural range of motion
  • Techniques and drills to improve your running on all types of terrains

Plus, you get full access to all the great running content and advice available on The Body Mechanic Locker Room during the training program.

New training content is sent to you every week, to keep you on track. The content will include, daily workouts, weekly kilometres, advice on running technique and easy to follow videos to ensure you learn the right techniques, avoid injury and turn up to the start line, race ready.
