Run Far

Amanda and Michelle 2015


RUN FAR is a 14-week (winter/spring) or 24-week (summer/fall) program to prepare you for longer distances and races like half marathons and full marathons. RUN FAR is open to all levels of runners!
From the start of the RUN FAR program, runners and walkers are grouped with others of similar abilities and goals. The RUN FAR weekly training schedule includes
3 different workouts, each designed to help the runner with pacing and endurance. Interval training, (speed workouts), tempo (pace running), hill running (strength), and progressively long runs (endurance) are combined with rest days and cross training to meet the goal results of the distance runner!

Beginner Half or Full Marathon Option

Designed for new members or current half marathoners interested in moving up to the marathon distance. Includes a training plan for those first time half marathoners and first time marathoners.

Intermediate/Maintenance Half and Full Marathon training program option

Designed for current Run For You™ members or other runners who have run a half or full marathon and are training for a half or full marathon. Intermediate training program for those who have already covered the marathon distance.
