Marathon Training Program
Half Marathon Training Program
*** Note: This is not a "couch to finish line" program. To get the most out of the program, we highly recommend trainees already be running mileage as follows when the program begins:
Marathon trainees: at least 20 miles per week
Half marathon trainees: at least 12 miles per week
Both marathon and half marathon programs begin with long runs of 6+ miles.
