The Half Marathon Training Program is a 12-week program specifically designed to help prepare runners for their first endurance event and/or to help seasoned runners meet a new performance goal. Get ready to be trained, educated, and moved to successfully and comfortably cross the finish line at a 13.1 mile event. Training will start with a distance of 3 to 4 miles and build up over the course of the program. We are thrilled to share that Mizuno is our program sponsor!
