The Half Marathon (13.1 miles) training program is designed to further runners towards their fitness and running goals beyond the 5K and 10K distances but runners should be able to run 3-5 miles prior to the start of the training program. It will include an education and practical impact of different training techniques and tools to further enjoy running and improve your performance. There will be occasional clinics covering a wide range of topical issues on running, health, wellness and nutrition from the area’s leading experts.
This year we have decided to enhance our training program to coincide with the races associated with the Austin Distance Challenge series of races. You will not be required to complete any additional races and the training program will conclude with the 3M Half Marathon.
The training group will meet on Tuesday nights at 6:30 pm and Saturday mornings at 7 am, each session will start from Fleet Feet unless advised in advance. Due to the nature of the training and the distances involved there will be more than one occasion where the training program may take place at alternate locations around Round Rock and Austin.
Tuesday night runs will focus on speed or hill work and Saturday runs will focus on building distance with support for all distances over 6 miles. You will also receive a complete weekly schedule with 5 days of workouts listed to help prepare you for the challenge of running 13.1 miles.
All race entries are the responsibility of the participant.
