Join hundreds of other individuals like you beginning Monday, July 26th, 2021, for a 16-week training program in the Toledo area — geared to whip you into shape for regional marathon events like Columbus, Detroit, Indianapolis, and culminating at the annual Churchill's Half Marathon on Saturday, November 13th.
Dave's Running Shop also offers a remote training program for those who may have a hectic schedule and need to run at different times or live too far away to make it to in-person training. No matter the reason, Dave's Remote Training offers the same full program (online) with everything that the in-person program offers except for the official group workouts.
If you're looking to complete your first half-marathon, Dave's Running Shop will get you to the finish line with a detailed, 16-week training plan geared toward the November Churchill's Half Marathon. This training plan will gradually build your mileage and assist you in getting used to the longer training runs incrementally, so you are ready to tackle the half marathon distance by race day.
You’ve got some experience with running the half marathon or shorter distances. Maybe you've completed the half before and are just looking to get to the next level. Let us build up your mileage safely and get you to the full 26.2 miles feeling fit.
You have conquered both the full and half marathon distances but want more than just finishing. You want to whittle away that time to a new PR, or even better....a Boston Qualifying time! With our coach-led training group system, combined with a detailed marathon program, Dave's Running Shop will have you smiling at the end of your next fall marathon.
For the runner who prefers to train on their own, or their schedule does not permit the time to meet on official training days. Dave's Running Shop offers a full, online training platform that is monitored by Dave's Training Director and provides you with the same quality coaching that the in-person program receives. You also receive all the perks of the traditional training program, too.
Prior to the start of the training program, you will receive a welcome email regarding the logistics. Best of luck and thanks for allowing Dave's Running Shop the opportunity to coach you.
