TrainingPeaks to Power the Official ING New York City Marathon
Online Training Program
New York Road Runners' training program powered by TrainingPeaks with
training plans designed by Andrew Kastor to help runners achieve their race
LAFAYETTE, Colo. - TrainingPeaks has been selected by New York Road Runners
as the official training software of the ING New York City Marathon,
providing all marathon participants with an exercise diary and interactive
marathon training plans designed by Andrew Kastor. Runners can now follow a
training plan that will provide them with the expert training advice
necessary to arrive on race day well-prepared and to finish their event
eager to return next year.
The training plans will be loaded into an interactive training log that
will allow participants to map their runs, create routes, keep a food
diary, record workout data such as heart rate, pace, elevation gain and
much more either manually, or by uploading data from one of more than 80
popular training devices including Garmin, Polar, Timex, iPhone and others.
"The ING New York City Marathon is the most prestigious marathon in the
world, and TrainingPeaks is proud to have been selected by the New York
Road Runners as the official online training software for this event," said
Donavon Guyot, CEO of Peaksware, the development company of TrainingPeaks.
"We're excited to provide the tools that runners will be able to utilize
together with their training plan to better achieve their goals."
A choice of three 18-week online programs designed by coach Andrew Kastor
are available for either the Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced runner on
the ING New York City Marathon website. Participants will receive daily
email workout reminders or be able to access the programs from any computer
or mobile device at any time to view their day's planned workout, log their
training or map their routes.
"New York Road Runners is honored to announce a partnership with Andrew
Kastor, USATF certified coach and husband of Olympic medalist Deena Kastor,
and TrainingPeaks" said Mary Wittenberg, President and CEO of New York Road
Runners. "This partnership with Kastor and TrainingPeaks enables us to

City Marathon race this year."
