Winter Marathon Training

Let's train for 26.2 in March! Starts December 2nd!

Hi there! Is your goal to run a full marathon next March? If so, you're in the right place! Our groups and expert coaches will prepare you to take on 26.2, healthy and happy!

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 having 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. Encouragement from coaches and friends can keep you going with a smile on your face during the hot summer long runs.

Each group will meet twice a week for 18 weeks from December to March learning about long runs, tempo runs, track workouts, easy runs, recovery runs, hydration, injury prevention, and much more.

To safely meet your goal we do ask that you have a base level of running under your belt before joining this group. What does that mean? We ask that you are able to run/walk 8 miles at one time at the start of the program and are currently running at least 15 miles per week. This does not mean you need to be able to run the entire way but just that you are comfortable covering that distance. Are you not sure if you meet these requirements? Don’t worry ask the coach for you location. You will be surprised that most people meet these requirements and are able to join the group.

This session will start December 2nd and end March 10th.

Target Race: Rock 'n' Roll Washington DC Marathon on Saturday, March 10th, Shamrock Marathon on Sunday, March 18th or any other marathon in the same time frame.
