Training Program


MyMarathon is the training program invented by RCS Sport/RCS Active Team and Julia Jones – writer, coach, life explorer – and coordinated by her, thought for and dedicated to all the runners (male and female) who want to run the Generali Milano Marathon. This program is unique and is based on original training techniques. Last year, all the participants of MyMarathon who have accomplished the training plan have crossed the finish line of the Generali Milano Marathon.

How does it work?

  • Reserved for the first 100 runners who join

  • Duration of 14 weeks (beginning January 1st)
  • 4/5 weekly workouts
  • Training schedules and remote assistance, interacting via Facebook Group and the Training Peaks app
  • Exclusive benefits: special gadgets in addition to the standard ones of Generali Milano Marathon, preferential lane for bib number pick-up, private changing room, etc.

If you have already registered for the Generali Milano Marathon, but you are also interested in MyMarathon write an e-mail to and we will explain how you can join the program!


Trainings will officially start on 1st January 2020. Registrations are open till 10th January 2020.


MyMarathon trainings are handled through an APP that allows to be indipendent anywhere you are as far as the trainings are concerned, despite having a trainer available remotely. At your disposal there is also a Facebook page through which Julia Jones can answer to questions, the participants can interact and on which they will find a new tutorial about the exercises every week.


Meetings with “Special Speakers” on running and marathon issues will be organised in Milan.
These meetings will be formative but above all motivational in order to help the participants to run and complete the Generali Milano Marathon.
