Half Marathon Training Program


About Hartford Half Marathon Training 
Are you contemplating the next level in your running journey? Our Half Marathon training program is perfect for runners who have completed a few 5ks or 10ks and want to challenge themselves to complete 13.1 miles.

This training program will target the 2014 Northeast Utilities Hartford Half Marathon on Saturday, October 11th. Training will begin Saturday, July 26 at 8am and continue for 12 weeks. Practices are Saturday mornings at 8am to start – though as runs get longer, practice will move to 7am.

In addition to this Saturday group practice, you are invited to attend optional runs on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm (from Fleet Feet Sports) and Thursday evenings at 6:30pm for a speed workout at Riverfront Park in Hartford.

To participate in this program, you should be able to run 6 miles at a 11:00 mile pace or better by the first practice.

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!
