By SpeedRunner

The speed you need to outsprint the competition, juke your opponent on the field or court, set personal records, and achieve peak performance. In SpeedRunner, celebrated running coach Pete Magill reveals his 4-week training plan to make any athlete into a faster runner, no matter the sport, age, gender, experience, or goals.

In every sport that includes running, the difference between the best and the rest is tenths of a second. From team sports like football, soccer, basketball, and baseball to individual sports like distance running, track, and triathlon, faster leg speed makes champions. By targeting the neuromuscular system and strengthening muscle and connective tissue, Magill’s SpeedRunner program builds speed, strength, endurance, agility, coordination, balance, proprioception, and explosive power so athletes can excel.

Developed over decades of experience coaching athletes of all ages from short sprints to the marathon, Magill’s SpeedRunner program is your key to speed. Magill has led his club to two dozen US National Masters Championships in road running and cross country. As a 5-time USA Masters Cross Country Runner of the Year and multiple American and world age-group record holder himself, Magill is proof that his training methods are effective.

Along with its core 4-week program, SpeedRunner offers speed only training, once-a-week speed work for distance runners, and single-day sessions focused on injury prevention and whole-body strength.

SpeedRunner will make you faster, stronger, quicker—no matter your sport!
