The sixteen (16) week Half Marathon Training Program is geared towards walkers and runners who would like to challenge themselves and safely build mileage and endurance to complete a half marathon (13.1 miles). The program will offer the benefits of improved cardiovascular fitness, reduced adverse health factors, and safe training methods. The target graduation race is Annapolis Running Classic on November 9, 2019.
Program Structure: The program consists of four (4) workouts per week, during which all participants will train as a group with the head coaches or join the club members for a standing club run. We recommend that participants join standing club workouts on either Tuesday at Ludwig Field (University of Maryland, College Park) or Thursday’s at Herbert Wells Ice Rink for the third workout. Coaches and/or Pace Leaders will attend the Tuesday workout with participants.
- Participants must be at least 18 years old
- Ability to walk/run 3 miles
