The basic requirement for a 50 km-, 71 km- or 100 km-Race is a Sub 4 hours finishing time in a Marathon, with at least three month of Ultra-Training, or any Ultra Distance equivalent to 100 km in 13 hours.


A Sub 4 hour Marathon-Runner is quite able to prepare within a three month training, to finish an Ultra Marathon up to 100 km successfully.


Detailed information about Ultra-Training with 14 different Trainings-Plans for 50 km-, 70 km-, 100 km and 100 miles, you can find in my book "Das große Buch vom Ultramarathon" Issue 3.
