The full marathon program is an 18-week program which takes place in the summer/fall that prepares participants for their fall marathon. The program will meet at  Atlanta Track Club, 201 Armour Drive, Atlanta 30324 as the homebase with rotating fieldtrips to favorite running trails.

To ensure participants are prepared for their marathon, all registrants must be able to complete at the start of the program 8-10 miles (16:00 min/mile) comfortably for a full marathon.  A pre-training plan will be provided at the kick-off event to support you in reaching this distance requirement by the start of the group runs.
