With our 10K/10-miler runners reaching their goal races this month, we’re already looking forward and planning for our next program, our 3rd annual Fall Half Marathon program. This 11-week program is for runners who are running at least three days a week with a long run of about 6 miles and a total weekly mileage of around 15 miles/week by the time the program starts. Whether you've already run a half marathon (or more!) and want to continue to work on your speed in a group setting, or you've just finished your first 10K and want to take your running to the next level, we will work with you to reach your goals. If you aren’t quite at this level yet but would like to train for a fall half marathon, talk to us about providing you with a build-up program to get you ready to start the group program by the end of June.
Our 2012 Fall Half Marathon program begins Sunday, June 24 with the goal of preparing runners to complete any of a number of fall half marathons, including the Parks Half Marathon in Rockville on September 9. The program includes a comprehensive training calendar, weekly group runs on Sundays at 7:30 a.m. from various locations in the Rockville/Bethesda area, discussions and expert presentations on topics such as strength training, stretching, injury prevention, nutrition and race preparation, a technical t-shirt, and group discount on entry to Parks Half Marathon as well as from RunningWarehouse.com. As with all of our programs, runners get individualized attention and follow-up throughout the program. In an effort to maintain this personalized attention, registration is limited so register early!
The cost for the 11-week program is $100, but until May 24 runners can take advantage of a discounted rate of $90. Recruit a friend who has NOT done one of our previous programs and pay just $85 each for a total of $170 (select “buddy option” from sidebar drop-down menu). Payment can be made online via PayPal by clicking the button below or on the right sidebar of our blog.
For runners who plan to sign up for the Parks Half Marathon, a well-organized and popular local half marathon, registration opened earlier this month and spots may fill up fast so we encourage you to register as soon as possible on the race website at http://www.parkshalfmarathon.com/
