Fleet Feet Sports Half Marathoners are broken into various pace groups based on running background as well as goals. These pace groups are designed to help you train in a safe and effective manner as you build up your base mileage. Speed workouts during the half marathon program are an opportunity to work with your pace group to push yourself and to train at your target race pace. These workouts are combined with core and upper body strengthening to ensure a complete fitness experience.

Our half marathon program is designed to challenge you, encourage you, and to help you have a healthy training experience as you build up mileage and speed in preparation for the 13.1 mile race. Get ready to cross the half marathon off your bucket list... and be prepared to have so much fun doing it that you decide to come out for the program again!

The Workouts:
Wednesday nights you will be challenged with a combination of hill work, form drills and "speed" workouts. Designed to help you run faster and more efficiently, you will be amazed with your improved overall fitness from these challenging and fun sessions.

Saturday mornings, we will go the distance. Saturday runs will be done at a slower pace to increase the amount of time on your spent on your feet and to encourage a quick recovery. Long runs will be combined by the marathoners and will be done with targeted pace groups. Saturday long runs will be crucial to your success in the marathon as they help you to build up cardiovascular, muscular, and skeletal strength for the endurance to finish the entire event.

Pace groups will help you to challenge yourself while giving you a consistent group for training. Your registration information sheet and our first group practice will allow us to appropriately place you in your group. Your schedule will be tailored for your group and you will work together throughout the program to help one another reach the next level in distance and speed. Each pace group will have an assigned volunteer coach with them on the run.
