TRAIN WITH TEAM RUN HUB! Run Hub Northwest is excited to host its spring marathon and half marathon training program for runners for our sixth year. As in past years our training program will have the Eugene Marathon and Half Marathon as its goal race (virtual or not). This year it will be a 14 week training program. We pack a lot of value into our training programs for the price. However, participants typically value two aspects of the training program above all others, having a coach write a weekly plan for you to follow and having teammates to workout with and cheer you on. Please note that we do not offer refunds for any reason and the cost of this registration does not include the race registration for the Eugene Marathon or Half marathon race.
HOW WILL COVID IMPACT THE PROGRAM? Due to health concerns related to the COVID-19 Coronavirus, our training program will be organized differently this year. You should only sign up for this training program if you are okay with virtual training and a virtual goal race, meaning the potential for no in-person practices or race. We are tentatively planning for small group, in-person practices by week 4 of the training program, but it is at the discretion of the coaching staff and guidance of local health authorities. We will require masks to be worn when you are not able to keep a 6 foot distance from others.
SHOULD I REGISTER and WHAT SHOULD I TRAIN FOR? Team Run Hub training programs are designed to help you achieve your fitness goals by providing you with top-notch coaching and teammates who share similar goals, turning the hard work of training into a fun and supportive experience. We welcome all ability levels to join our team with the following considerations. If you are currently injured or experiencing pain during running we suggest you do not sign up for this training program and join us in the future when you are all healed up. The half-marathon training program can be attempted by those with very little experience in running. However, if you have never run, we suggest starting with one of our beginner 5K programs that we offer at other times during the year, and then attempt a half marathon following successful completion of a 5K program. We recommend the marathon training program be attempted by those who have been running regularly for months leading up to the start of this program and have completed a run of at least 8-10 miles several times during that period.
TRAINING PROGRAM FORMAT: Each participant can expect to have a customized weekly training program written for them starting within a week of returning their athlete history questionnaire. We use a Google spreadsheet with a tab for each participant's training plan. Coaches will continue to write a weekly plan for each athlete as long as the athlete has updated their training spreadsheet weekly. Team practices will be scheduled for Tuesday evening and Saturday morning, with a weekly or bi-weekly team meeting video conference call (day of week TBD). Tuesday evenings will be a higher intensity workout that will focus on running at faster paces and Saturday mornings will be the longest run of the week. The other days of the week will be laid out in each participant's training plan based on each participants history and goals and will mostly include easy/recovery runs, days off, or cross training. There will be no official meeting time or location except for Tuesday and Saturday.
If you engage in many different forms of exercise please be aware that coaches may suggest that you rearrange or eliminate certain activities to successfully prepare you to run the half or full marathon.
