Who is Half Marathon Training for?

Anyone who is already able to run at least 4-5 miles and wants to get ready for 13.1 miles!  The 14-week Half Marathon Training starts at 4 miles (so you must be able to already run 4 miles comfortably) and builds up to 13.1 miles.  We have multiple paces groups for the Half Marathon Program including 9-10, 10-11, 11-12, 12-13 and run/walk intervals (run 2 minutes, walk 1 minute). 

Thursday night workouts have a speed/core option for those runners looking to increase their speed and strength.  Saturday mornings are long runs.

Workouts take place on Thursdays at 6pm and Saturdays at 7am.
