Half Marathon Training Program

This program has been successful in helping runners of all levels reach their half marathon race goals.  Join the fun if you are looking to run your first half marathon or set a new PR this season.


Participants must have a base of at least 1 year of regular running (at any speed) with a current comfortable long run of 6 miles and at least 10 miles/week.

Pace varies by individual.  We have a wide range of paces represented at most of our training programs.  The more people in the program, the more paces we’ll have represented so spread the word.


TBD (info coming soon!)


Winter/Spring, starting in February 2018 for The Frederick Half Marathon.
Summer/Fall, starting July for Fall target race.  Starting in July for an October Goal Race.
