The COVID-19 crisis has created significant challenges for individuals and families. While participation in endurance sports is insignificant compared to the life-or-death decisions presented by this pandemic, at 80/20 Endurance we want to help athletes safely maintain their training and future race participation. Here are some ways we can help you navigate this challenge:
Free Maintenance Plans
Due to event cancellations and uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 virus, 80/20 Endurance Maintenance Plans are being offered free of charge indefinitely. It is our hope that the Maintenance plan will help athletes transition more easily from one training plan to another as their races are postponed or cancelled. You must use code 2020Aid to receive a 100% discount off the plan.
Indoor Run Plans
Our new Indoor Form Focus plans are specially designed to help runners develop a more efficient stride. Though originally intended as a way for runners make the best of the current health crisis, you can use it whenever you're taking a break from race-focused training and wish to prioritize form over fitness.

Virtual Race Directory
It's heartbreaking to spend months and months training for an event, only to have it cancelled. Our Virtual Race Directory can help you find an solo race to complete your goal, compete against others, and stay motivated. Your contributions to this directory are welcome.
