Half Marathon Training Program

     Amica Iron Horse Half Marathon

About Our Spring  Half Marathon Training Programs 
Are you contemplating the next level in your running journey? Our Half Marathon training program is perfect for runners who have completed a few 10ks and are ready to up the ante and conquer 13.1!

This training program is targeted for those who want to run the Amica Iron Half Marathon, though your coaches can help tailor your training plan if you have another spring half in mind.  Training will begin Saturday, March 21st at 8am and continue through your goal race, on Sunday, June 7th. Practices are Saturday mornings at 8am to start – though as runs get longer, practice may be moved earlier.

Runners are encouraged to join our Wednesday evening Fun Runs and Thursday Track Workouts to improve your endurance, speed...and to meet new running partners so you don't have to run alone if you don't want to.

To participate in this program, you should be able to run 6 miles at a 11:30 mile pace or better by the first practice.  Run/walk intervals are fine.   

Coaches are available to answer any questions via e-mail, and send a weekly e-mail newsletter with the training plan and additional tips to stay healthy. Special mini-clinics will ensure that in addition to training properly, you're given the right knowledge about footwear, socks, insoles, sports bras, nutrition, hydration and other important topics that can improve your running experience.

If anything is more exciting that completing your first Half Marathon, it's completing it with a great team of friends with a fabulous group of coaches cheering for you all the way!
