To be the best, you have to train with the best. The Marathon Runner app is a unique running trainer based on the program of renowned Dr. Nicholas Romanov, two-time Olympic coach and the creator of the revolutionary Pose Method of running. Its primary purpose is to help athletes prepare for long-distance running competitions such as marathons, half-marathons, 5Ks and 10Ks.
Just set a race goal (M, HM, 10K, 5K), select the number of training days, and the date of the race. The app asks you to run time trials or enter your most recent 5K result. Based on that, Marathon Runner will provide you with an optimal training plan and pace for your running workouts according to your current ability level.
During training, the app tracks your results and adjusts each upcoming workout based on your preceding results. (See Premium Account for details.)
- Customized training plan to prepare for the race (M, HM, 10K, 5K) based on training methods Olympic runners use
- Real-time GPS tracking of your running route on a map
- Automatic pauses when you walk or stop moving.
- Interval training with auto-stop functionality and detailed interval results.
- History of your accomplished goals

You can unlock additional features like pace guidance and voice coaching via the premium subscription option that will optimize your training. A 30-day free trial is available so you can explore all of its advantages. After the trial, the premium subscription costs $9.99 per month.

Good training program
The only thing I’d love to see that isn’t present in the app is an Apple Watch component, because I don’t run with my phone.
Real training program! Bye-bye static pdf files
I tried it this afternoon!!! Thank you thank you thank you for fixing the bugs! I do occasional 5k with friends and I always wanted to have a real training program where I don’t have to figure anything out myself. I was super excited when this app came out but it had bugs and it got a bit frustrating. So just got this update and I’m freaking out excited! The bugs seem to be gone and the interface is sooooo much better! I’m super excited about the idea of an app that can give me a real training program. Normally that would mean buying it from a coach and then figuring out how to adjust it so it works for me and so I don’t get over or undertrained. I don’t have to think about any of this anymore. It’s super easy to just type in my data and get my training schedule for next training session ready to go. Definitely recommend!!
LA marathon here I come!
Wow, wow, wow! I’ve been waiting for this update. Day and night! Love the sound prompts and voice guidance. I’ve tried a few other apps and I’m just tired of the same old same, I don’t care about tracking my run, I want a REAL TRAINING PROGRAM! I want to input my info and results and I want to get a real training program every time I train. This app IS IT. I signed up for the LA marathon at the end of March so I’m so excited to see the results! I’ve been working on my running technique and now I can actually put it to work. Yaaayyy!!
