Summer Full Marathon Training 2019

Whether you are a seasoned distance runner or a first timer with the goal to finish, our full marathon program is designed to challenge, encourage, and to help you have a healthy training experience as you build up mileage and speed in preparation for the 26.2 Mile Race. Fleet Feet Sports full marathoners will be 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. The program is designed for runners and run/walkers who can currently run 5 miles. We have an exceptional coaching staff to lead you in your training and create specific training plans to enable you to get the most out of your experience.
