Our Fleet Feet Sports Bloomington Full Marathon Training Program is designed to prepare intermediate runners for their first full marathon or to help seasoned runners meet a new performance goal. Our fall training program will have a 12-week program structured for those completing the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 7, 2018 and a 16-week option for those completing the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon on Saturday, November 3, 2018. However, you can use this program to train for any race you choose or just to run long for fun with great people.
There will be an informational session on Tuesday, July 10 at 7:15 p.m. at the store. We highly recommend attendance at this meeting so you can learn how this program differs from our half marathon training program. Please note: this program will not have mentors on group runs. Our program kick-off and first workout will be Saturday, July 14 at 7:30 a.m. at the store.
When: Weekly group training runs are at 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays and 7:00 a.m. on Sundays. Participants in our Full program will also have the opportunity to meet up with our half marathon training program participants on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
