The 9-Mile Marathon
THE MARATHON TRAINING PARADOX
the down and dirty truths about how to finish your marathons STRONG
why so many 'classic' training schedules are failing miserably
and the deep-rooted marathon training mistakes you MUST avoid...
This program is not for the running elite but for people living a busy life, who want to run solid marathons in 3 1/2 - 5 hours, over and over again. As a busy mom of two, with my personal marathon best of 2h47, I have helped thousands of passionate 9-Mile students make the change to running and living The 9-Miler Way.

My name is Marlies Kort - Marathon Training Expert, Founder and Creator of The 9-Mile Marathon Training System. In 2013 I won the New York City marathon non-pro overall female in 2h52. In 2015 I became Ironman 70.3 World Champion in the F40-44 class.

Highly Controversial New Book From Marlies Kort:
Why most of us experience difficulties with finishing strong when you're following the classic high mileage  training schedules. It is the marathon training paradox.
Marlies Kort- 9-Mile Marathon Founder
IMPORTANT:
Running and training The 9-Miler Way is not for everybody. If you're not willing to accept a new, brutal honest truth, my new marathon training system is not for you. 

In The 9-Mile Marathon training concept I will challenge your beliefs about what's needed to generate results from your marathon training efforts.
I ALWAYS FELT THERE HAD TO BE A DIFFERENT WAY.. A BETTER WAY.
That's why I developed The 9-Mile Marathon Training System..
"In My New Book I'm Revealing The Shocking Truths About Why So Many 'Classic' Training Schedules Are Failing Miserably… The deep-rooted marathon training mistakes you must avoid.
You'll find a provocative NEW reality on marathon training principles, a refreshing new vision and insights, background information and schedules on finishing your marathons STRONG.
Because your marathon running success is based on how well your marathon training converts. Period.
In ALL marathon training sessions I did in the past I noticed the SAME issues over and over again with my running students. 
You can choose to ignore this fact and bury your head in the sand. You can choose to keep running those long and slow  18+ mile training runs. Or, you can read this book cover to cover and make sure this approach not only make sense but is right for you..
In The 9-Mile Marathon I’ve boiled it down to 3 radical new training concepts. 
Understanding The Basics
If you've been struggling with your marathon training, when the training load with those weekly 18+ mile training runs is simply too much for you, or when you push harder and harder and progress is staying away, you need to switch from training the traditional way to this NEW visionary training system, The 9-Mile Marathon. 
"Precisely because The 9-Mile Marathon runs counter to what traditional coaches told us the past four decades, it is crucial you gather information and understand the basics. When you separate yourself from the masses you need to be armed with solid background information because people will want to take you down, even concerned training peers. You need answers to not only quell their doubts but mostly to flush out and kill off any lingering ones tucked deep away in your own psyche."
If you feel like you've failed in the past, it's NOT your fault. There's a LOT of information out there, and it can be confusing. Many times the information overload from the established, 'high-mileage based' traditional coaches keeps you away from success.
It's okay.
If you've been concerned in the past that you can't succeed with your marathon running goals and dreams, I want you to put those fears to rest. You can do this. You just need the right system that shows you how to make it happen, without the traditional 'you-first-need-to-wear-yourself-out' training dogma.
the 9-mile marathon Training System will help you to:
(this is just a fraction of what you'll get)
  •  Understand Why Those Endless Long and Slow 18+mile Training Runs Are The No.1 Reason For Failure (page 68);
  •  Run SOLID Marathons Over and Over Again (page 197);
  •  Feel Like You Can Keep Going Forever (page 49);
  •  Learn To Realistically Predict Your Marathon Finish Time +/- 5 mins (page 171);
  •  Discover A New Metabolic State through ESS Energy Supply Switch (page 89);
  •  Learn How To Apply the AFA concept -Accumulated Fatigue Avoidance; No More Feeling Worn Out Halfway Your Training Program (page 93);
  •  Highly Reduced Risk On Repetitive Stress Related Injury (page 17);
  •  Better Synch Your Training Schedule With Your Social/Family Life (page 233)
Bottom line is, You Do NOT Need to run those endless long and slow 18+mile training runs in order to FINISH your marathon STRONG!
The 9-Mile Marathon is the ONLY comprehensive training system on the market today, to consistently run solid marathons, based on max 9-mile training runs, MHR*, AFA** and ESS***.
*MHR - Your personal Marathon Heart Rate Sweetspot **Your Physiology: AFA - Accumulated Fatigue Avoidance ***Your Metabolism: ESS - Energy Supply Switch
And yes, it's different from what most 'classic' coaches told us the past 40 years... 
I'll explain to you in detail WHY most of us experience difficulties with finishing strong when you're following the classic high mileage below-race-pace training schedules. It is the marathon training paradox. How the traditional marathon training methods, based on those endless long and slow training runs, are the #1 REASON for so many runners to quit and fail. 
The Marathon Training Paradox.
I'm addressing the controversial topic why you should NOT run those long and slow training runs below your marathon race-pace. Why they are the main REASON for failure. For not making it to the starting line due to all sorts of repetitive stress injury. For not being able to finish strong and enjoy the final miles. I will give you DETAILED in depth explanation of AFA** and ESS***, including finish time prediction tables and training schedules.
When you order the book you will ALSO get a FREE 7-DAY Trial Offer to Access my pocket online TRAINING & COACHING Portal..
..with dozens of training video's, tips&tricks, background information about training The 9-Miler Way and running instructions.

There are hundreds of schedules out there that miss the mark about what matters when it comes to sustainable marathon and half-marathon running performance. Following a list of “hacks” won’t help you make the profound change you are seeking either.

In ALL training sessions I did in the past I noticed the SAME issues over and over again with my running students. It was like a pattern. And to be honest, I've had my share in 2014 as well. 

In The 9-Mile Marathon you'll read about how my world fell apart, the unimaginable Ironman World Championship win in 2015 and the striking breakthrough when I found the secrets of training "The 9-Miler Way" that very same year..

Today, I want to share those with you.

The 9-Mile Marathon is designed for people like you and me, living a busy life with work, family and friends, running marathons in like 3-6 hours at those 'big' events. When you are able to run 10k in less than 75 minutes, in good health (ask your doc!) and when you LOVE the challenge and not afraid to stand out, then you're good to go and start training The 9-Miler Way!

DAN
"It’s easy to get wrapped up in following those ‘standard’ training schedules. Marlies teaches us how we can do without the old ’no pain no gain’ mantra. It is new, and yes, disruptive. Breaking with what most coaches tell you today. Her program opened my eyes too. There isn’t any other marathon training program like it. Marlies a rebel? Well yes, maybe. But for sure a VERY clever one!"
-Dan Blankenship, Head Coach RVA Team Richmond
ROBERT
"I normally would not take time to write so much about a product, but I am so amazed and thankful for the results from this program, I simply had to let you know how this has changed my training (and life) in such a positive way. This will likely allow me to keep training and swimming, biking and running and hopefully for years if not decades to go!"
-Robert Bechtel, Cincinnati OHIO
SANDY
"Marlies, you had my race figured out almost spot on. I finished at 4:08. Not my fastest, but it was the BEST I ever felt in the final 10K. I was passing everyone and I felt amazing through the whole race, especially the end I was feeling strong. I could have kept on running after I was done. Doesn't feel like a ran a marathon since it was, shall I dare say, easy?!
-Sandy Lawson Member of RVA Marathon Team Richmond

JOHN
"So yes, I was probably in a perpetual state of permanent overtraining. Then I saw your face on youtube and book, and the aha moment came and I figured I would give your system a run for the money. Just by reading your book it seems that the speed work will get the HR at a lower level for the 9 mile runs, therefore increasing those runs speed to meet the MHR (your system' hr 'sweet spot'). Pretty sneaky concept all while staying fresher. Win win! Thanks again! Attached is a recent photo at my last Masters of All Terrain Race.

IMPORTANT
The 9-MileMarathon Training System is NOT a “start to run” program.

In order to be able to follow my training program you have to run for at least one year, be able to run 6 miles in less than 75 minutes and you have to be in good physical shape according to your doctor, ready to start with the 90-Day marathon training program. When you are in doubt, tell your doctor about the 9-mile marathon training concept and ask his advise. Please always follow the advise of your doctor. 

I’m using the numbers and the references from myself, my students and the experiences from others for example purposes only. The numbers and indications stated in any of my publications (books, ebooks, audiobooks, blogs, video's, emails, Facebook, Instagram, interviews etc. etc.) are my personal references and based on my personal references. Please understand my advises and results are not typical, I’m not implying you’ll duplicate them (or do anything for that matter). I have the benefit of practicing running and triathlon for more than 20 years, and have an established following as a result. I have the benefit of having a specific running talent, experience, running background and physical condition that allows me to successfully run fast sub-3 hour marathons and win triathlons The 9-Miler way. Your results will vary and depend on many factors…. including but not limited to your running background, experience, physical condition, talent and training ethic.

All running and running training programs entail risk as well as consistent effort and action from your side: running and training 'the classic' way, based on endless long and frequent training runs entails risk, as well as new, 'modern' training methods based on less training miles, combinations of running and walking, constant heart rate based training programs, and f.i. programs based on running less hours/week, relatively more recovery time and rest. There is ALWAYS risk involved in practicing endurance sports and endurance running in particular, that may cause serious injury or even death. If you’re not willing to accept that, please DO NOT FOLLOW THIS PROGRAM.
