Half Marathon Training
Let's train as a group to achieve 13.1 together!
Get serious about your running and fitness and train to complete or compete in a half-marathon or 10 Miler! Our half marathon programs are open to everyone from the runner attempting their first endurance event to the repeat competitive runner. Training can be individualized to your experience and goals.
At Charm City Run our goal is to safely train people new or advanced to their goals of everything from finishing their first marathon to reaching a PR and everything in between. The journey is just as important as the race and we want to make it a fun and enjoyable experience which is why we think the group atmosphere is the way to train for a long run. Each group will meet twice a week for 11 weeks to learn about long runs, tempo runs, track workouts, easy runs, recovery runs, hydration, injury prevention, and much more.
We strive to help you achieve your goal safely by a gradual increase in your training. We give talks on hydration, nutrition, injury prevention, and have physical therapists available during your training to help with your goals. Training plans will be created for beginner and intermediate runners so no worries we have room for everyone. Our groups range from 16 minute milers to about 7 minute milers and everyone in between.
Our next half marathon group will start in late February and train on for spring half marathons in May. Click below for more details!
