Dear Runner,

Thank you for registering for Pune Half Marathon, to be held on Dec 9, 2018. We have curated a training program specifically for you. This training program is brought to you in partnership with The Run Smart Project. The Run Smart Project was founded by Dr Jack Daniels, two-time Olympic medallist and world-renowned exercise scientist. Named “The World’s Best Running Coach” by Runner’s World, he is world-famous for writing Daniels’ Running Formula, a 1998 book outlining his unique training philosophies.

We have decided to provide you a free training program that comes with every registration of a Half Marathon or of a 10KM race. The training programs are designed on the basis of your VO2* max and delivered through VDOT02 app.

*VO2 max is the measurement of maximum amount of oxygen a person can utilize during intense exercise. It is a common measurement used to establish the aerobic endurance of an athlete prior to or during the course of training.

These are designed by legendary coach Dr Jack Daniels and other Run SMART coaches. These plans are tailored specifically for you, designed to help you reach your goals and stay healthy. You work one-on-one with a Run SMART coach and receive custom workouts uploaded to your online training calendar. All workouts are customised based on your training history and current fitness.
