Who is 26.2 Finish for?

Anyone who is already able to run at least 10 miles and wants to get ready for 26.2 miles. The 12-week 26.2 Training program starts at 10 miles (so you must be able to already run 10 miles comfortably) and builds up to 20 miles. We have multiple pace groups for the 26.2 Training program, including 10-11, 11-12, 12-13, run/walk intervals (run 2 minutes, walk 1 minute). Thursday night workouts have a speed/hill/core option for those runners looking to increase their speed and strength. Saturday mornings are long runs. We do require that all 26.2 Training participants be 18 or older.

When and where do workouts take place?

Thursday evening workouts start at 6PM and Saturday morning workouts start at 7:00AM at Reserve Avenue Fields North, across the street from Carilion Clinic 3 Riverside.

Anyone is welcome to TEST DRIVE a 26.2 Training workout for FREE the first week of the session before signing up. Please check-in at the Fleet Feet tent when you arrive.
