Training Overview:

  • Two “tracks” offered:
    • the first option features an average amount of training volume (max of 13 miles for the half and 20 miles for the full) and is good for first timers, those with a history of overuse injuries, and/or those just looking to finish.
    • the second option has a higher amount of training volume (max of 16 miles for the half and 22 miles for the full) and is good for uninjured runners looking to improve upon previous race times.
    • we can help you decide which track is right for you!
  • Participants should be able to comfortably run or run/walk a 10k distance before starting this program (completion of previous half marathon recommended for the full program, but not required).
  • Half marathon program long runs start at 3 or 6 miles (depending on track).
  • Full marathon program long runs start at 6 or 9 miles (depending on track).
