■ The Official Marathon Trainer App ■ Featured on The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, Men's Fitness, Forbes, Mashable, Glamour Magazine, Popsugar Fitness, CBS News, NBC News, Macworld, Cosmopolitan, Lifehacker and many more! From the same makers of the #1 C25K® Trainer app, Marathon Trainer follows the same successful recipe to create an easy simple 26.2 (42k) program. Ideal for first-time marathoners and those who are new to running. The program uses a blend of running and power walking in training and racing. You’ll soon be able to run-walk the entire marathon. See thousands of real success stories and race photos of your fellow runners using these running program at Facebook.com/c25kfree ≈ IMPORTANT ≈ This app will train you to complete a full 26.2 (42k) distance using a RUN/WALK ratio This proven 20 week plan is designed for beginner/novice runners. The run/walk breaks help make the full marathon less grueling, as well as reduces the overall impact and risk of injury. But don’t think that just because walking is involved that your time will be slower, or that you're accomplishing less. Many veteran runners have posted personal best times after switching to this run walk method! By using a ratio of running and walking, you can manage your fatigue which gives you the muscle resource and mental confidence to handle the later parts of the race. Slowly build strength and stamina and the blend of walking and running together reduces the overall impact and risk of injury. By the end of the program, you will be READY for your 26.2 (42k) race! Listen to your favorite music while you train and follow the 26.2 program’s convenient audio alerts. Along with voice/audio alerts and music controls on your headset, just press “start”, put your device in your pocket, and you are ready to go. Alerts will tell you when to warm-up, walk, run, cooldown, and when minute is left to give it your all. ≈ Features ≈ ◉ BRAND NEW MUSIC curated from top DJ's, built right into the app (subscription)!

  • Not at all what I expected

    By JennParr
    ...should come with a date goal
  • Not very good

    By E_B_V
    I deleted the app after not being able to adjust dates to project a race to train. Not very good if you can’t do that select a date like most other free apps.
  • New update

    By naha58
    I have enjoyed the past year plus using the 13.6 and recently 26.2 trainer. However today, I was all set to go using the new update and unfortunately twice when I locked my phone the program shut down. I was not getting my cues and when I got home, I looked at my run and it had not been tracking. I count on being able to set my program, music lock my phone using the settings and put it in my armband. Taking my phone out of the armband is not convenient when running. Feeling hot and disappointed.

    Keeps me on track with my running a good coach and I keep building up on this
  • Pretty good

    By RLT60
    I paid to not have interruptions but still get bothered by ads for mor bundles of exercising. Not good when in the beginning of my run it has a pause and buy this app.
  • Really good app.

    By Cold Stone Poopy
    Really good app. Almost perfect. Just needs to stop it from dropping notifications when you switch between apps. Could be a glitch specific to my phone but when I go to another app while running, it will stop telling me when to run or walk.
  • Can’t turn off gps after run

    By penguindances
    First day using the app. Run went great but the app is still using my gps and I can’t find a way to turn it off. Tried the FAQ and a quick google search. If I can’t figure it out soon this app is going to have to go.
  • Not worth the money

    By Ojusn
    Not worth 10 bucks, I’m sorry. There are a lot of free running apps like Nike Running, Strava that provide the same or better experience and functionality, including planning for Marathons. I wish I could get my money back. The UI is too heavy as well. And it’s confusing. I can’t believe you guys are selling this for $10. I’m sorry I didn’t like it at all.
  • Exactly what I was looking for

    By MBARKOW23
    I'm training for my first marathon and didn't really know how to train. Really glad I found this app! Tells me what to do and I can still listen to my music. Does the job.
  • Pretty good, with lots of room for improvement

    By plummm
    The training schedule is just what I need, and the audio cues are great so I don't have to keep checking my phone. However, the audio cues (and haptics on Apple watch) only continue to work if the phone is awake with the screen on the whole time. With the recent software updates causing older iPhones to drain battery like a sinkhole, I've found my phone hitting 20% battery halfway through a training session, and that little notification window interferes with the app until you acknowledge it. Same thing happens with the 10% battery warning. So it would be nice if the app could continue to work with the screen off. Most people fun with the phone tucked away in a pocket or am armband anyway, so it doesn't make sense to require the antenna to be on there whole time. Also, now with the third generation Apple watches having standalone cellular capability, it would be really really nice to have the option of the watch app functioning independently of the phone. I hate lugging the phone around on runs, and constantly having to check the watch to make sure the phone isn't about to die and turning off the cues would allow better focus on the training.
