TEST-DRIVE THE FIRST WEEK FOR FREE!
Thursday, Jan. 24 at 6pm
Saturday, Jan. 26 at 7am
Workouts take place at 210 Reserve Ave. Roanoke, VA 24016, in the big gravel lot next to the field and the tennis courts. Look for the Fleet Feet tent! Arrive a few minutes early to check-in with Coach Leslie at the Fleet Feet tent, sign a waiver, and she will help you find your group to walk or run with! We have a walking group, run/walk group, and a running group to train with.
Cost of 13.1 Training is $110 and that includes 12 weeks of workouts (two times a week). Registration for the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Half Marathon is not included in the cost for this program.
NEW THIS YEAR! We are donating half of your registration fee to Roanoke Outside! Roanoke Outside Foundation was officially formed as a 501(c)3 charitable organization in 2013. It is Roanoke Outside’s mission to make outdoor activity and environmental stewardship a core component of our community’s lifestyle by promoting a “conservation through recreation” philosophy.
13.1 Training is for walkers, runners, and run/walkers! For anyone who is already able to run or walk at least 4 miles and wants to get ready for 13.1 miles (a Half Marathon). The 12-week 13.1 Training program 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 pace groups for the 13.1 Training program, including walk, run/walk and run. We do require that all 13.1 Training participants be 18 or older.
13.1 Training meets twice a week on Thursday and Saturday:
Anyone is welcome to TEST DRIVE a 13.1 Training workout for FREE the first week of the session before signing up. Please check-in at the Fleet Feet tent when you arrive to fill out a waiver and find your pace group.
Orientation will take place on Sunday, January 13th at 5:15pm at Fleet Feet Roanoke, located at 4347 Franklin Rd, Roanoke VA. Come out to learn more about the program, meet the mentors and the coach, hear testimonials from past participants, and get all of your questions answered!
There are multiple running pace groups for 13.1 Training:
The cut off time for the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Half Marathon is 6 hours which requires a 27:30 pace.
Here's the great thing: if you start with one group and decide you want more of a challenge, or less, you can change groups! Make sure to talk with Coach Leslie and your mentors for advice! Walkers can move to intervals, runners can move to intervals, intervals can move to walking, etc.
Your safety is our number one priority. With your safety in mind, we have created the below rules and requirements by which all Fleet Feet Running Club participants and mentors must abide.
The goal race for the spring session is the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Half Marathon. The registration fee for the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Half Marathon race fee is NOT included in the 13.1 Training registration cost.
50% of the cost will go to Roanoke Outside, a local non-profit with a mission to make outdoor activity and environmental stewardship a core component of our community’s lifestyle by promoting a “conservation through recreation” philosophy. The remainder of the registration fees goes towards coaching staff, equipment, insurance and part of the registration goes back to the City of Roanoke to help maintain the Greenways and facilities that we use.
