We are so excited to run alongside you as you embark on the adventure of the Land Ho 50K!
If this is your first attempt into the ultra marathon distance, have no worries, we have you covered. Our program will not only allow you to physically cross that finish line, but help you enjoy the process along the way. You will receive ongoing encouragement through education, advice from experienced ultra runners, cool SWAG, and more!
Our training plan has been designed to benefit runners at all levels, whether you have an established aerobic base or want to go from couch to 50K. Our 18 week program starts on April 22 and is broken into two sections. The first ten weeks will focus on enhancing fitness, consistency and short interval speed work.
The final eight weeks will be geared toward technical elements of the race where we will start to hone in on the specific work needed to optimize race performance and readiness.
About Our Coaches
Scott Ramey is from Omaha and lives here with his wife and two daughters. He was enlisted in the active duty Army from 2004 - 2001. Running was more of a requirement at first, versus actually wanting to run. After seeing his brother run the Boston Marathon in 2006, he set out to start training and found a deep love for the sport of running. He completed his first marathon in 2008. In 2019, he ran his first ultra marathon, a 50k in Kansas City. Since then, he has completed multiple ultras, ranging from 50k to 250 miles.
Scott has recently become a running coach and is gaining his certification from United Endurance Sports Coaching Academy (UESCA), focusing on ultra marathons. He is motivated by people running all distances. Scott likes to encourage excitement and celebration with people’s day-to-day running, while still helping them achieve goals they have set.
More about Scott:
Miguel Ordorica has lived in Omaha since 2002 and started running in 2010. He ran his first marathon three months after his first run, which he wouldn’t recommend. A year later he saw a flyer marketing a 50k, which is something he hadn’t realized existed, but also decided he had to try. His first 50k took just over twice as long as his most recent marathon, but he was hooked.
On a recent trip to Colorado, Miguel and his traveling partner were discussing all of the trail options in Omaha, and realized that not many people knew about all the different places we have to run here. Upon returning to Omaha and talking with Fleet Feet, “Off Grid” was born. Miguel has been excited to help Fleet Feet grow running in the Omaha area, showing people new trails, routes, and adventures.
