Our Her Trails bespoke training program for the Kosci 50 ultra marathon is not just designed to get you to the finish line, but do so with a spirit that's stronger and resilience that is unshakeable.
The journey begins with an important 4-week foundational phase. We gradually build your endurance and strength over the following 16-week progressive phase, all customised to meet the unique challenges of the Kosci 50.
At Her Trails we understand that training for an ultra marathon is not just about running. We've created a comprehensive program that emphasises balance, focusing on strength, mobility, and even incorporating yoga. We also truly believe that mental resilience is just as important as physical endurance, so we've integrated mindset coaching into our program to help you develop mental toughness.
We've also taken nutrition and physical therapy into account to ensure you're performing at your best while preventing potential injuries. Our experienced coaching team, with their wealth of experience and expertise, will be there to guide and support you throughout your journey.
A highlight of our program truly is the sense of community it fosters. A Her Trails program connects you to a network of like-minded women who share the same ambitious goal, providing each other with support, motivation, and camaraderie.
By the time you reach the starting line at the ski hub of Thredbo, you'll feel physically and mentally prepared to conquer every kilometre, from the flowing single track to the Thredbo River. The Kosci 50 isn't just a race, it's an experience, and we are ready to help you make it a truly unforgettable one. Commit to your ultra marathon dream today with our Kosci 50 training program!

"Hello awesome Coaches 🙌🏼 I can't believe it's Week 18 and UTA50 is around the corner!!!! I don't recognise this runner I've become! I've gained so many skills through the program and pushed through the fears of hills and anything to do with speed training lol... When I started running last September I never imagined I'd be running these volumes - I'm completely hooked on trail running! THANK YOU for all the guidance, support, and community!"
'Over the past year or so I’ve discovered the joy of trail running through Her Trails, and at this point I think I’ve completed all the programs you have created! Thanks again for all the great advice, support and encouragement - I wouldn’t be running wild without you!'
""What an epic 20 weeks I've just been on. I didn't know if it would be possible. I am a busy mom of three, and finding balance in life has always been a challenge. The Her Trails 50km program has been a game-changer for me. It has taught me how to manage my time and energy effectively while pursuing my passion for running. The support from the coaching team and the uplifting community at Her Trails has been invaluable. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking for guidance and a supportive community in their running journey."
"I just want to express my gratitude to the amazing Her trails team. I am so so happy to have discovered Her trails and have loved every aspect of the last 20weeks.
The race yesterday exceeded all my expectations and was the perfect race for me. Throughout the whole race I had this unwavering belief that I could cope with anything and finish and it was because of the training program and all the mindset, breathing and nutrition advice I soaked up along the way.
Thanks to you guys I had strategies to combat the nerves at the start, discipline to keep my pace early and strong intention to remain calm throughout.
Your expertise, your infectious positivity and down to earth nature is just so engaging and welcoming."
Words from Kristen
'The 50km ultra trail marathon was a goal that I set at a tumultuous time in my life…it was a chance for me to prove to myself that I can do, and succeed at, hard things.
Of course a run of that length takes preparation. The Her Trails training guide took the mental load away when preparing for the event, which was what I needed while combining full time work, study and being a mum. All I had to do was commit to myself that time, and show up for each session. The mix of strength, speed work and base miles allowed me to stay consistent and injury free, and kept it interesting.
Achieving big goals takes focus and consistency, and I went into the event feeling like I had done the work. Despite the obvious physical challenge of running 50km, I enjoyed myself so much and even managed to come in around my goal time. Looking forward to the next event, and would 100% use the program again.'
