Marathon Training Program
Half Marathon Training Program
*** This is not a "couch to finish line" program. It's expected trainees will be running when the programs begin. ***
Marathon trainees should be running at least 20 miles per week before the program begins. Half marathon trainees should be running at least 12 miles per week before the program begins. Both programs begin with long runs of over 6 miles.
