How Much Can You Improve With A Schedule From The Worlds Greatest Coach?
Our training plans include 5k, 10k, half marathon and marathon customized training schedules for runners of all levels. Schedules are designed by legendary coach Jack Daniels, named the “World’s Greatest Coach” by Runner’s World, and formulated so every pace of every workout is personalized to match your running profile.
Jack’s world-famous training methods have helped dozens of athletes make the Olympics and thousands of everyday runners achieve new personal bests. It’s your turn! Find out how fast you can run with a schedule from the World’s Greatest Coach.
Safer Than Generic Plans
These affordable training plans are unlike anything available on the market today. Most online generic schedules account only for a person’s perceived ability (beginner, intermediate, advanced) without factoring their time goals, running history or lifestyle.
The common result of this oversight? Increased risk for overtraining or injury. And unlike other programs, a coach is always available via e-mail if you need help or have questions along the way.

When Jack Daniels Is Coaching You Anything Is Possible.
“I really appreciated your plan: I ran more miles on back to back days then I have ever run but stayed healthier than I ever have during a marathon training cycle.” – Jason Klaitman
“It is the best I’ve ever felt during a marathon. The sufferfest didn’t start until mile 23 but until then I felt great. It was awesome!” – Kim Bogin
“Don’t know if this has ever happened in your coaching career, but I nailed your prescribed target time for Chicago to the second. Pretty crazy. Gotta say, I didn’t think it was possible. I’m now a true believer in Run SMART Project methodology. I’ll be back for my next race!” – Josh Weinrobe
“Just want to tell you one more time how happy I am with this training plan. In addition to running faster than I ever have, I think this is also the longest period of injury-free running I’ve ever had.” – Sumner Smith
“Thank you for a great “Kick in Butt” track workout today! Nothing like intervals to remind you that it is possible to run like you did in High School at age 43!” – Hayley Long

"My passion is creating training programs for people of all walks of life, and I'm happy I can continue to do that through The Run SMART Project.
People have been copying my training schedules for years-oftentimes making minor adjustments and claiming them as their own invention. Now I'm glad the schedules will finally be associated with the original source."
— Jack Daniels, running coach for more than 45 years.
