GOAL RACE: Iron Horse Half Marathon on Sunday, June 2, 2019

If you can’t run this race or just wish to run a different race, we’ll be glad to help you rework your training calendar to meet your goal race.  

WHEN: Our program starts Saturday, March 16th at 8 am

We’ll kick things off with a runner-centric workout and get-to-know you session at Fleet Feet.

Our group runs will be Saturday mornings at 8 am. Start time may be moved earlier as the weather heats up (ahhh, warmth!) and the miles increase.

**To participate in this program, you must be able to run 5 miles at a 13 minutes per mile pace by our first practice**

Runners are encouraged (and very welcome!) to join the free Wednesday Fun Runs at Fleet Feet, and we recommend participating in the Fitness Fundamentals cross-training program at CrossFit Hartford to get the most out of your cross-training days. 

And because running isn’t just about running (gasp!), there will be training in

  • Proper Running Form
  • Hydration
  • Nutrition
  • Strength Training
  • Cross Training
  • Speed Training

"Its so hard to put into words what the Fleet Feet Half Marathon training programs have done for me ... they've provided me with the basic fundamentals of what is needed for long distance running, given me the courage to believe I can do it, the coaches and mentors always made it fun and helped ease the nerves.  I feel a part of this running community that makes me want to get up and run!  And mostly, its given me some great friendships."

Lisa Zajac:

Lisa ZI love the Fleet Feet Half Marathon training programs!  I wanted to run a half marathon, but didn’t think I had the physical fitness or the mental toughness I needed to run 13.1 miles.  It turns out that all I needed were the right coaches and the right training program!  I originally signed up because I wanted the coaching and support for my long runs.  Now, I keep coming back because now I get to run with some of the best friends I have ever known!

LORI MCCANTS:

LoriI love the Half Marathon training program at Fleet Feet because everyone has something to contribute to the group. We encourage each other, motivate each other, laugh with each other and give each other the words and laughs to get each to the next mile.  The coaches are supportive and is able to give you some of the best advice. No one is left behind!

We become an Ohana (family)!  

We are all running and training to reach that same goal regardless of the pace or the time. And our main goal is to run the race, enjoy the race, have fun and cross that finish line for the Half Marathon. That is why I love the Half Marathon training program!
