Marathon/Half Marathon Program

Fleet Feet Distance Project (FFDP) is proud to offer training programs designed to help you maximize your commitment at the popular marathon and half-marathon distances. To ensure your success and safety, we strongly suggest the following guidelines:

Half-marathon runners should be running at least 4-5 days per week, for a minimum of 20 miles per week, prior to starting the program. A weekly long run of at least 6 miles should be run under 11:30 pace. This is not a run/walk program; if this pace is challenging, please consider our 5K/10K Advanced program to work on endurance and speed before attempting a half-marathon program.

Marathon runners should be running at least 5 days per week, for a minimum of 25 miles per week, prior to starting the program. A weekly long run of at least 8 miles should be done under 11:30 pace. This is not a run/walk program; if you do not meet these criteria, please consider another FFDP program to improve endurance and speed before attempting a marathon program.

Training program includes: 
  • Coached group workouts 
  • Weekly training schedule
  • Education clinics
  • 1-year Fleet Feet Running Club membership provides additional group runs and club perks
