Marathon training doesn’t have to be a daunting proposition. Our Full Marathon training program gives you the accountability you seek to reach your goal with the camaraderie of group training – whether this is your first marathon or you’re a veteran marathoner.

We offer a 20-week training program including coached weekend long runs and the option to participate in weeknight runs with our Running Club.

We recommend that you have either completed our Half Marathon training or have completed a half marathon in the last six months; or that you have been running at least 3-4 days per week for 4-6 months. You must be able to complete a six mile run on the first day of the course.

NOTE: Race registration and other race fees are not included in Running Academy enrollment.

All classes also provide you with informative training workshops on:

Good Form Running, including a video gait analysis
Footwear, apparel, and accessory
Sport-specific strength training
Nutrition, and more…
