Half Marathon Training Program


About Our Winter 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.

We're excited to offer training for a destination half (Hyannis! wahoo!) and a local half that will be held the following weekend. It's up to you! This training program is targeted for those who want to run the Hyannis Half Marathon on Sunday, February 22nd or the Colchester Half Marathon on Saturday, February 28th. If you plan to run Hyannis we'll be in touch about accommodations that weekend.

Training will begin Saturday, December 6th at 8am and continue through your goal race. Practices are Saturday mornings at 8am to start – though as runs get longer, practice may be moved earlier. In addition to this Saturday group practice, you are invited to attend optional runs on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm (from Fleet Feet Sports).

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!
