2017 Winter Half Marathon Training

2017 Winter Half Marathon Training

Join the tens of thousands of people who challenge themselves every year to the fastest growing distance race in the country – the half marathon. This terrific 13.1 mile distance is challenging and yet achievable. Our programs target runners, run/walkers and walkers. We have an exceptional coaching staff to lead you in your training. Pace groups, speedwork, and specific training plans will enable anyone who can currently run 5 miles to finish their first half marathon or improve over previous performances.  

Kick Off Meeting:  Tuesday, January 3rd at 6:00pm at Fleet Feet Sports

Coached Workouts:  Tuesdays at 6pm and Saturdays at 7am starting January 7th

Race Date:  Quintiles Half Marathon at Wrightsville Beach on Saturday, March 25th

Cost: $120 (does not include race registration)

Program Details: 
Tuesday nights you will be challenged with a combination of hill work, form drills and speed workouts. Designed to help you run faster and more efficiently, you will be amazed with your improved overall fitness from these challenging and fun sessions.

Saturday mornings we will go the distance.  We will run long runs at an easy effort to build up your strength and stamina in preparation for race day.

Pace groups will help you to challenge yourself while giving you a consistent group for training.  Your registration information sheet and our first group practice will allow us to appropriately place you in your group.  Your schedule will be tailored for your group and you will work together throughout the program to help one another reach the next level in distance and speed.  Each pace group will have an assigned volunteer coach with them on the run.
