How do you run a 50 mile?
You can handily finish a 50-miler on just 30 miles per week, provided you do lots of long runs.
Or, you can do quite well in a 50-miler by running 70 or 90 miles a week.
If you can run those 70-90 miles at 7:00 pace or faster, you may even win races.
Set your goals and train accordingly..
How do I recover from a 50 mile run?
Take at least 2 weeks of easy recovery after an ultra. This should include more rest days from activity than normal and any runs should be short and at a very relaxed effort. I also recommend focusing on getting as much sleep as your body needs during this time and eating a healthy diet.
What is a good time for a mile and half run?

Can you run 50 miles in a day?
Yes, you could run 50 miles without training… but it’s not recommended. Unless you’re already an elite athlete with a solid endurance base, it’s unlikely that you’ll make it to the end of a 50 miler without training. If you do, you probably won’t have had a very enjoyable time on your long run.
Can I run a 50 mile race?
50 Miles is Really Far… I always tell runners that a 50K, while still technically an ultra, is “not that much further” than a marathon. Because it’s not, a 50K is totally doable. 50 miles, however, is a very long day for most of us non elite runners.
