Louisville, Colo., July 2, 2024 — TrainingPeaks, the industry-leading training app for endurance coaches and athletes, announced today a new partnership with the Elite Trail Team (ETT) — a team of trail and ultra runners who compete in off-road events around the world.

Under this agreement, TrainingPeaks is recognized as the official training and coaching software for the group of elite runners, supported by a multidisciplinary team of experts who will access detailed performance metrics, trends, and training plans via TrainingPeaks.

“TrainingPeaks is the leading online training software for endurance sports and we have been using it successfully with the Elite Trail Team athletes,” says Doug Stewart, Founder and Performance Coach of the ETT. “This new partnership has allowed for easy access for the support team to access the athlete’s training calendars as well, allowing for a more joined up approach. Additionally, the new Strength programming feature in TrainingPeaks is a great addition, that is helping our strength and conditioning coach program sessions directly in TrainingPeaks, making it easier for the athletes and support team to work in a more joined up way.”

The Elite Trail Team is currently made up of 14 elite athletes from the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Romania and Switzerland. Some have represented their countries on European and World competition stages, while many have podiumed at, or won, some of the marquee events in trail and ultra running. The team offers these athletes world-class support with a multidisciplinary team of coaches, nutrition, psychology, sleep, and physiology experts.

The team has a mission to share this high-performance knowledge with the wider trail running community to inspire and inform runners across the world and help progress this fast-growing sport.
