Red Coyote’s 2023 Senior Marathon Training Program is designed to help you train for the Oklahoma City Memorial Senior Marathon on April 27th, 2024. All abilities 65 and older are welcome! Whether you're a walker just getting started or a seasoned runner, there's a place for you! In our Red Coyote program, we think sharing the training journey with friends working to achieve a common goal is the best part and makes every run more fun! We'll help you achieve your goal safely by a gradual and strategic increase in your training mileage. We start with very gentle 1 mile workout and give your body plenty of time to adapt over the 6 weeks of the program as we log 25 miles together in preparation for the 1.2 miles on race day. We'll give instruction on proper hydration, nutrition, injury prevention, training principles, as well as other areas to help you have a successful race! All participants will receive schedules through email but ALL other communication will go through Red Coyote's private Facebook group that is exclusive to this program. To help stay accountable virtual participants or those who miss a run/walk can post their workouts to the Facebook group page.

Registration and Cost
Our 6 week program is FREE to join this season! We'll take care of all the training portion but you'll be responsible for signing up for the 2024 OKC Senior Marathon. You can sign up at anytime and look for the welcome email, training handbook and link to the Facebook page which will be sent out in late February a couple weeks prior to the start of training.
We will have two informational meetings at a future time TBD, each meeting will last approximately 30-45 minutes, or until all questions have been answered. Both meetings will also have a Zoom option for those unable to meet in person.
The kickoff workout will be Monday, March 18th at 7:00am at Red Coyote Classen Curve. We'll meet at Red Coyote Classen Curve at 7:00am every Monday and Saturday morning. We'll have a 6:00pm evening option every Wednesday where we'll go to some of OKC's favorite exercise spots.
