The 2022 LMJS marathon and half marathon training program wrapped up in March, and we can't wait to train together again starting in November. The 18-week training program starts up in late November 2022 and will get you ready for the March 19, 2023 Oakland Running Festival, or any spring race of your choosing. 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 and social community, Saturday group long runs, online training platform, weekly training run schedule, and more. You do not need to be an LMJS member to join the program...yet we'd love to have you benefit from our membership perks, including discounted program fee. Registration will go live in September.

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