 Program Description:

The FSRC Half Marathon Training Program is ideal for the first-time or intermediate half-marathoner, and is a great way to improve your running and meet other runners in our community. Each participant is given a training plan including recommendations for mileage, cross-training, and days off. While some runs will need to be done on your own, volunteer coaches lead group runs twice a week. Group runs are encouraged, but not mandatory.  A private Facebook page provides a place to coordinate additional runs with other participants, and get support and advice from more experienced participants and your volunteer coaches. We try our best to answer your questions, or at least connect you with someone who can. Participants must be at least 16 years of age on program start date.

You must be a paid member of FSRC to register for this training, but you can join the club at the same time you register here. If you think you are a paid member of the club and you can't register, please check the spelling of the name you used to join the club, using https://steeplechasers.org/membership/registered-members/
