Our spring half marathon training program is a 16-week program that prepares participants for the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon on March 17, 2019. The program is great for all levels of runners/walkers with a goal of completing a half marathon within 3.5 hours.  The program will meet at Atlanta Track Club, 201 Armour Drive, Atlanta 30324.

What level am I?  
Level One: This is for people who are just starting to run or walk or returning from injury.        
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

  • To ensure participants are prepared for their half marathon, all registrants must be able to complete 5-6 miles at a maximum 16:00 min/mile by the time of the first group run on January 5.  
  • Register by December 1 to receive your four-week, self-directed, pre-training plan to support you through the holidays and help you reach this distance/pace requirement by the start of the group runs. 

Training programs are geared toward adult participants 18 and older. However, participants as young as 16 may participate as long as they are accompanied by a parent and the parent has signed a release acknowledging the risks involved. Both the parent and child would need to be registered for the program.
