About Our Summer Half Marathon Training Program
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 Eversource Hartford Half Marathon, though your coaches can help tailor your training plan if you have another fall half in mind. Training for the half marathon officially begins on Saturday, July 23rd at 7:00am in Glastonbury and on Sunday, July 24th at 7:00 am in West Hartford - but we're offering a special "Double Distance" program that enrolls you in our 10k training program until the half marathon program starts.
Runners are encouraged to join our Wednesday evening Fun Runs and Thursday Speed + Strength Sessions 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 12:00 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!
