Our spring marathon and half marathon combined training takes place in the winter/spring and prepares participants for the Publix Georgia Marathon and Half Marathon on March 19, 2017. The program is great for novice and intermediate runners.  

  • Marathon Participants: Upon registering, marathon participants will be provided with an 18-week training schedule/log to guide you through the holiday season and prepare you for the regular group runs starting in January.  To ensure participants are prepared for their marathon, all registrants must be able to complete 8-10 miles (16:00 min/mile) comfortably by the start of the January group runs. The pre-training plan provided at the kick-off event will support you in reaching this distance and pace requirement by the start of the group runs.
  • Half Marathon Participants: The half marathon program is a 16-week program.  To ensure participants are prepared for their Half Marathon, all registrants must be able to complete at the start of the program 5-6 miles (16:00 min/mile) comfortably.
