Our spring marathon training program is an 18-week program that prepares participants for the Publix Atlanta Marathon on March 1, 2019. The program is great for all levels of runners/walkers with a goal of completing a marathon within 3 to 6.5 hours. The program will meet at Atlanta Track Club and run parts of the course throughout the training season.

Upon registering, marathon participants will be provided with an 18-week customized online training plan that pushes out daily workouts and is designed by a coach specifically for your fitness level. You will have access to your coach with direct emails and at the weekly Saturday group runs and Wednesday workouts. Training will start in the fall and guide you through the holiday season.

What level am I?

Level Two: This is for people who have participated in races in the past, but are trying to get
ready to cover the event distance. Currently running or walking 3-4 days per week

Level Three: This is for avid runners looking to set a new personal best. Currently running 5-7 days per week.

Pre-Training
