Distance Training TAC- Half Marathon Spring 2024

Join our Spring Half Marathon training program to help you reach your race day goals!

This season, we're excited to introduce a 'new to us' race to the lineup—the Capital City Half and Full Marathon on Sunday, May 19th in Olympia, WA. This well-established, hilly race offers excellent on-course support, and planning for the Capital City race gives us a few extra weeks of training to build a solid base of miles. As always, our training program has a goal race to structure our schedule around, but there are also many other spring races in the Northwest. If you prefer to run a different race, just let us know, and we can adjust the plan to fit your choice. The Tacoma City Marathon (and half) takes place on Sunday, April 28th, and we’ll be working that mileage into the plan if you choose that race.

Training plans include: 14 weeks of training. This includes five run days a week, two as a group and suggested cross-training days.

Group Runs: Wednesdays at 6:00 pm with a focus on alternating track workouts or hill repeat workouts. Saturdays at 8:00 am for group long runs starting from Fleet Feet Tacoma or Point Defiance.

Pre-run warm-ups and cool-downs at each session.

Coaching: Weekly emails with training plan details and coaching topics that are helpful to both new and returning runners.

An active Facebook page for community engagement and sharing photos. Informational clinics with Physical Therapists and other fitness professionals throughout the season.

We're proud to have an excellent group of mentors—experienced and friendly peer runners who are ready to answer questions, chat on the run, and encourage everyone along the way. All paces are welcome, with a typical range between 7:00-14:00 minutes per mile. To comfortably participate in our program, you should be able to run about four miles for the half marathon training or eight miles for the full marathon training.

If you have questions, please reach out to Coach Bekah Olson at bekah@fleetfeettacoma.com
