HANNY'S FREE Training Plan

Hanny Allston has prepared a FREE training plan for all athletes participating in the Run Larapinta Stage Races. The incredibly comprehensive plan covers both the Malbunka and Namatjira events and is a superb guide to help get you to the start line (and finish line) in the best possible shape.

The focus of this 19-week training planner is to help you to find your feet, using your Run Larapinta goal as a foundation for personal growth and wilder adventures by following the wave training theory. We cannot emphasise strongly enough that this training plan is a guide and best complimented by the knowledge outlined in The Trail Running Guidebook (see below).

You will receive a link to download the free training planner once you enter the Run Larapinta Stage Race. (Alternatively you can buy the training plan here for $24)


Trail Running Guidebook

The training plan above is best followed and understood when read in conjunction with Hanny’s new Trail Running Guidebook.

The Trail Running Guidebook provides athletes of any ability a safe pathway to help you find your feet in trail running. Hanny Allston’s personal coaching methodologies focus on long-term health, training and performance successes.

It contains key lessons Hanny learnt on her journey to becoming a world champion and elite trail running record holder. Sharing her theories on training & racing strategies, nutrition & hydration, running technique, psychology and more. Hanny has experienced the elation of success but also the pitfalls of striving too far for performance. It is from this honest place that she wrote this book for you.

We strongly recommend all runners purchase a copy of the Guidebook not just to aid your preparation for Run Larapinta but to build your knowledge and understanding of trail running and how to best enjoy it sustainably for many years to come.

Purchase the Trail Running Guidebook for $17.99 here (Kindle e-copy $7.30).
