  • Two “tracks” offered in both half and full programs – Track 1 option features an average amount of training volume (good for first time half or full marathoners or those with a history of overuse injuries), while Track 2 features a higher amount of training volume (good for uninjured runners looking to improve upon previous half or full marathon times).  We can help you decide which track is right for you!
