Marathon/Half Marathon Program

Fleet Feet Running Club (formerly Fleet Feet Distance Project) 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

 

The next half- and full-marathon training groups will start up again in January 2019 -- stay tuned for additional details.
