Your Coastal Classic Weekly Program Will Guide You On How To Build A Strong Race Body, Stay Motivated... And Remain Injury Free

The Coastal Classic is challenging!

There is technical terrain, single track, boardwalks, gnarly climbs out of each bay and a 3km sand run to the finish!

To help you train smart all the way to race day, we have developed two specific training programs,  a base plan and a race plan, for the Coastal Classic.

To avoid over doing it ... or under doing it, the best way to approach your training is to start with a Base and Strength Training Plan which will help you to develop endurance and strength, followed by a Coastal Classic Race Specific Training Block where you gradually increase elevation and intensity.

Our Base Program is 8 weeks long and our Race-Specific Program is 12 weeks long.  Both are specifically designed to help you achieve your personal best.

Join Base + Race Training Plan and Train Smart All The Way Till Race Day.

Another happy finisher! Thanks Mark for your fantastic program - I enjoyed everything about it and it really kept me motivated! Coastal Classic was amazing - such spectacular scenery and a tough course - those steps coming down onto Garie Beach - far out they were hard!! The organization and aid stations were the best.

I was in seventh heaven and hooked! I began immediately planning my next trail run with my friends…CC and TBM Locker Room had created a monster !!!
In seriousness I finished this race in good shape and with a very big smile because of the TBM Locker Room training plan and support. Had I continued my own spreadsheet the results would’ve been very ugly indeed and more than likely I would’ve sustained injury due to poor stability and run strength!

Thanks Mark for all your fabulous information and training advice for Coastal Classic. I did come down with the flu during taper which was really unfortunate, however got to the start line today with the goal to finish & enjoy the run. I did this and managed a PB by about 20mins. I already feel better than after last years finish. My running buddies enjoyed your tips on stretching, which I passed on. They agree it has made a huge difference.
