How Long Should You Train for a 50K?
4 months is plenty of time to prepare properly for the 50K distance. That being said, it isn't about just the volume you are doing as much as it the quality of the work you are putting in. The athlete who is going for a sub 3 hour, 40 minute 50K time is an incredibly strong and anaerobically fit expert. You will need to devote 8 to 10 hours or more each week preparing for a race of this length.

Also, to work longer training at the anaerobic threshold. You, as the athlete, will be racing your 50K right around or slightly above this intensity. So, it is critical that we prepare you to get as efficient at running at this pace as possible.
