Squadrun are the trusted training partner to Shotover Moonlight to provide a scalable and event-specific coaching solution. Squadrun is a ‘coach-led’ running community formed by passionate athletes and coaching professionals, sharing their knowledge and experiences while supporting one another on their training journey. It is an advanced system which delivers detailed training plans at the lowest possible cost - because quality information and support shouldn’t cost the earth!

Your Coaches work with you to establish a unique training plan based on YOUR fitness and deliver a programme with intensities specific to you and the Shotover Moonlight event.
You are given 7 runs per week weighted by ‘Priority’.

You then plan your week and execute your prescribed training in the same way you would were you being coached privately, with the difference being it’s up to you to structure your week with the provided plan in order to fit it around your busy life.

The 7 runs supplied are tailored to your specific fitness so the right intensities are provided to ensure you achieve the correct ‘training state’ for each and every run regardless of your fitness or ability.
You do not need to do all 7 runs. You set the training load (runs per week). Some weeks you might do as few as 3 or 4 runs.

Not only will your coaches be there to help through the training journey but we’ll share your success on the finish line. We’re in this together and we’ll likely be at the race to see you start and see you finish.
There is no set-up fee, no hidden costs, start when you want, and you can leave at any time!
