2022 RCM Half and Full Training

Registration Deadline passed.

Run your way to your first half marathon or marathon finish or improve your current time by joining the Fleet Feet Huntsville 14 week training program. The program is designed for intermediate runners that are looking to accomplish the half or full marathon distance or want to improve their half or full marathon performance. These sessions enhance the training by offering peer support and mentor coaching through endurance and speed workouts.

This training program will help you to prepare for your marathon by providing motivation and coaching, speed work, endurance long runs, and more.

NEW:  We will be using the Vdot app for our athletes.  Vdot is a measure of your current running ability.  It assigns a score to all running performances, determines your current training paces, and equates a race time from one distance to another.  The Vdot app makes your training more productive and effective, as you will get more out of your workouts.  The app will help the coaches and mentors better know the type of runner you are and how to maximize your efforts.  Your personal schedule, along with training paces for each workout will be provided in the app.  By syncing your GPS watch or your Strava to the app, your coaches will be able to follow your workout performances, provide feedback, and keep you on the right path. 

Both coaches and some of the mentors are RRCA certified running coaches.
