Sub 2:30 Marathon Mastermind by RunDreamAchieve .

Sub 2:30 Marathon Mastermind

A self-paced e-course for elite-level athletes willing to do whatever it takes to break the 2:30 marathon barrier. 

Have You Always Wanted To Break The 2.30 Marathon Barrier?

The sub 2.30 marathon is an elusive goal runners around the world are chasing. The purpose of this course is to maximize leverage and bypass the mistakes other athletes are making.

Have you been on sub 2.30 marathon pace for the majority of your marathon only to miss the barrier by a few minutes or even seconds?

Are you seeking a new strategy or different tactics to use in 2020? It is time to start working smarter rather than harder. As s a 2.19 marathoner I know what it takes to run below the sub 2.30 marathon barrier. I will be covering the exact strategies I was taught while being coached by a Boston Marathon champion for three years. In addition, you'll be learning strategies used by the world's top marathon runners.

The way to run under 5.43 mile pace over the classic 26.2 mile distance is to leverage your work output. You need more than just the mindset that higher mileage is the answer. It takes more than just working hard to break this time. A new strategy and the willingness to do whatever it takes is mandatory. Athletes that break the sub 2 hour and 30 minute marathon barrier have a focus on running as efficiently as possible. They have trained in such a way that they are able to clear lactic acid faster than it is building up in their blood stream.

The reason why sub 2.30 marathoners are getting to the finish line in 2.29.59 or faster is from specific training methods. Their are specific strategies most marathoners miss when it comes to running under this highly coveted and elite time. They have improved their lactate tolerance to such a degree that running under 5.43 per mile or 3.33 per kilometer becomes automatic and sustainable.

It will not be an easy task. That being said, this course was built by a marathoner who has run under not only the sub 2.30 marathon barrier but also under 2 hours and 20 minutes. You will be following the same strategies your instructor used to destroy the 2.30 marathon barrier and ultimately run 2 hours, 19 minutes and 35 seconds over the 26.2 mile distance.

Is this course self-paced?

Yes, the course consists of 31 tutorial videos covering specific training methods, mindset, nutrition and other tactics needed to break the sub 2.30 marathon.

What makes this course different?

There are very few online courses that cover this specific goal. This is not a cookie-cutter training program anyone on the internet can purchase. It is an interactive, one-on-one coaching course designed by a 2.19 marathoner who has done exactly what you desire to do.

Why is this course so expensive?

This course was not designed for the average athlete. The sub 2.30 marathon can only be achieved by professionals who are willing to do whatever it takes and that value personal development. The price comes from over 28 years of knowledge and expertise being taught within it. Few athletes around the world run under the sub 2.30 marathon barrier each year. If you truly desire to make this goal a reality the tactics you'll learn within this course are worth the price and then some. The old saying "you get what you pay for" is very true. Would you go to someone who has never went to dental school to work on your teeth? Of course not. The price of the visit comes from the knowledge and years of expertise that stems from the practitioner. The one-time investment you will forget about, what you won't forget is crossing the finish line under 2 hours and 30 minutes.

Is there a money back guarantee?

Absolutely. I have zero interest in taking your hard earned money. If you do not get at least some value then I am not interested in your money and will gladly return it. My focus is on the needs of my clients, not the money. There are no guarantees when it comes to running a time as fast as a sub-2.30 marathon. You will have to put in extensive training. This is not an average time or goal so this also requires you putting in the mandatory work. That being said, the advice you will be following in this course will ensure you receive the greatest return on your investment as possible. If you are not getting any value from this course you can contact me at in the first 30-days for a no questions asked, money back guarantee. This isn't about money, it is about delivering results to my clients, period.

How long do I have to complete the course?

How does lifetime access sound? You can take your time. The course is comprised mainly of videos covering topics such as nutrition, exact methods needed to run under 2 hours and 30 minutes for the marathon and much, much more.

How is the course set up?

The course is comprised of 5 modules. There are 31 videos and concludes with a 16-week, sub 2.30 marathon training schedule. You will know exactly what needs to be done each day during your 4-month training cycle leading into your sub 2.30 marathon attempt.

Is this course worth the investment?

Yes. You will be coached and mentored by a sub 2.20 marathon specialist. More importantly, you will be getting advice that will drastically speed up your chances of breaking the sub 2.30 marathon barrier. In addition, you will be getting one-on-one consultation at a fraction of the cost other professional athletes and coaches charge. It is not uncommon for professional coaches and/or former elite athletes to charge thousands of dollars for their time. 

Are there any requirements I need to have in order to sign up?

No. That being said, it is strongly recommended that you are at least a sub 3 hour marathoner or very close to it. The sub 2.30 marathon barrier requires quite a bit of effort, talent and a mindset outside the norm. It is an elite time and it will take a special athlete who has run in the 2.50s,2.40s or 2.30s for the marathon distance. 

Do I get access to the course immediately?

Yes. As soon as you sign up you are officially a member of the mastermind course. 

My question isn't listed. What should I do?

E-mail me at and I would be glad to answer any questions you may have.
