2017 Fall 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.
Whether you are a seasoned half marathoner or a first timer with the goal to finish, we have a place for you! Our half marathon program is designed to challenge you, encourage you, and to help you have a healthy training experience as you build up mileage and speed in preparation for the 13.1 Mile Race.
Fleet Feet Sports Half Marathoners are broken into various pace groups based on running background as well as goals. These pace groups are designed to help you train in a safe and effective manner as you build up your base mileage. Speed workouts during the half marathon program are an opportunity to work with your pace group to push yourself and to train at your target race pace. These workouts are combined with core and upper body strengthening to ensure a complete fitness experience.
*Note: Our Half Marathoners will be training with our Marathoners throughout the program.
