Anthem Shamrock Half Marathon (13.1 miles) race - STARTS Dec 19, 2020 through March 21, 2021:  This is a 13 week program that starts on December 19 (or 20th) and continues through Sunday March 21, 2021, race day.  The Anthem Shamrock Half Marathon is a popular race for Richmonders, a course that is flat and fast, making it the perfect place for a PR (personal record). Participants will enjoy spectators and entertainment along the course as well as a festive finish line celebration.  More information on this race can be found at:  https://www.shamrockmarathon.com/race-info/anthem-half-marathon/    Program Costs: $45 does not include race entry

10K (6.2 miles) - STARTS January 9, 2021 through March 27, 2021:  This is a 11 week program that starts on January 9 (or Jan 10) and continues through Sat, March 27, 2021, race day.  The program is geared towards novice and experience runners who want to train in the Short Pump (west end) or Woodlake areas of Richmond.   You have the option of running either Saturday or Sunday or both days (for those more experienced runners).  If you have not run before, this is a great program to get started.  If you are an experienced runner, this is a great program too.  Either way, you will enjoy working with our Race Team RVA Certified Coaches as they lead you through this training program.  Program Costs: $40

Just Run Maintenance Training Option (typically runs up to 5 miles on weekend group runs)STARTS Dec 19, 2020 for 14 weeks ending on March 27, 2021:  In addition, we will continue to offer our just run maintenance option for those that just want to run with the team over the course of the training but don't plan to run or train to run a race in the spring. You will receive all the benefits of the 2 programs above, including a team shirt, but will not receive special routes or a training plan.  You run as far as you want with the team, either following the team's route for that weekend or making your own.  Program Costs: $40
