The 2021 LMJS marathon and half marathon virtual training program was a success! Join us next year to stay motivated with us! The 16-week training program typically runs from late November through March, and will get you ready for the Oakland Running Festival or another spring race -- virtual or live. Whether training for your first half marathon or your tenth marathon, we’ll help you go the distance and support your goals. The program includes a supportive community, online training platform, weekly training run schedule, suggested running routes, pace groups, and training shirt. Next program starts November 2021; tbd if in-person or virtual. Please check back for registration information. Happy running!

Marathon Training Program
Half Marathon Training Program
*** This is not a "couch to finish line" program. It's expected trainees will be running when the programs begin. ***
Marathon trainees should be running at least 20 miles per week before the program begins. Half marathon trainees should be running at least 12 miles per week before the program begins. Both programs begin with long runs of over 6 miles.
