This week's #RunChat, which kicks off at 10 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6, features a chance to win a training plan for "America's Toughest Road Marathon" - the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon in Roanoke, Virginia.

Here’s the awesome thing about this plan - while it’s designed for the Blue Ridge Marathon, you can use it to help you train for a marathon anywhere.

The plan for the marathon training program starts on Dec. 24; the half plan starts on Jan. 7.

“People can use it to run America’s Toughest Road Marathon, but it would be great motivation and training for any spring race in April or after,” race organizers say.

To enter to win, simply retweet the tweet below by 9:55 p.m. ET Dec. 16 AND answer at least one question during the chat.

Two winners will be selected at random and announced in the final few minutes of the chat. (Note: this is NOT a giveaway for a race entry; it is for a training plan for either a marathon or half marathon designed for BRM. Click on the hyperlinks above for full details.)

Also this week we’ll have an exclusive 30% #RunChat discount for the marathon, half, double, 10K and training plans that will start on Sunday and be good for only 48 hours!

The race on Saturday, April 13, 2019, features 7,430 feet of elevation change -- more than any other road marathon in the U.S. -- and includes a portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway and numerous other climbs in the southwest Virginia city.

Next year's event also features a chance for runners to get DOUBLE that elevation change with the Blue Ridge Double Marathon. This is the second time this race is an "official" event -- for several years a group of dedicated runners completed the course before the marathon started, all for some bragging rights. 

(Please note: the #RunChat code is not valid for the double.)
