Welcome Half and Full Marathoners!
This is a free class so people are free to join at any point in the training. Please spread the word, we want this to be a fun group where we help each other reach our running goals.
We have a considerable range in fitness and ability. The training schedule has ranges built in to it so remember to pick the time/distance that is appropriate for where you are at TODAY. We don't want you to overachieve and wind up injured in two weeks. Start slow and build over the program. The last 8 weeks are way more important to your race than the first 10 weeks.
A few items: Long runs are listed by distance, all other workouts will be by time...it is not how far you run on those week day sessions but rather how long....a 45 min workout for someone running 10 min miles is just as relevant as a 45 min workout by someone running 6 min miles. This is especially true through these hot summer months! Fun and social interaction are two of the prime goals for this program. We want you to gain fitness and run well in a fun and inclusive environment.
Athletes are responsible for their own registration to their respective event.
All training participants must register at hillcountryrunning.com for the run program.
All participants receive 10% off purchases at HCRC for the duration of the program.
