Marathon Training Program
Half Marathon Training Program
Note: This is not a "couch to finish line" program. Both marathon and half marathon programs begin with long runs of 6+ miles. To get the most out of the program, we highly recommend marathon trainees already be running 20 miles per week when the program begins and half marathon trainees at least 12 miles per week.
