Come join our 17++ week Moore’s MarinesTM
Marine Corps Marathon Training Program targeting the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon (and training for the Baltimore Marathon and other marathons, too)!
JONAS GREEN PARK, Rte 450 @ the Naval Academy Bridge.
1st session for FIRST TIMER MARATHONERS:
7:00 a.m. Saturday, June 22, 2013
1st session for VETERAN MARATHONERS:
7:00 a.m. Saturday, June 29, 2013
This low-key program will guide the participants from a base of 10 miles up to a three long runs of 20 + miles in 17 weeks. We will start at Jonas Green Park, run to the B & A trail, run the prescribed distance on the trail and return to Jonas Green Park. Occasional "Scenic" route diversions will be planned. Hydration on the trail will be provided, but all participants are encouraged to carry water/hydration. The goal will be for all who complete the program to be able to complete the Marine Corps Marathon and/or Baltimore Marathon. A formal training plan will be sent out in May/early June.
Annapolis Strider membership and ability to run 10 miles comfortably. What does comfortable mean? It means being able to run 10 miles without being winded or flat out, plum exhausted at the end, such that you could run another 2 or 3 miles without difficulty.
Weekly: each Saturday at 7:00 a.m. sharp (time will be move back to 6:30 a.m. a few weeks into the program due to increased heat/humidity). Those who can't attend the weekly session should strive to do it on their own. The training program will also provide "on your own" training during the week.
How to build up for the marathon, various pace charts, injury prevention and treatment, running safety, and keeping running fun. Information on appropriate summer running attire and hydration will also be provided. The B&A Trail has generously allowed us to hold this program on the trail. A handout on trail running safety will be provided.
Guaranteed Entry to Marine Corps Marathon:
The MCM has graciously agreed to reserve a limited number guaranteed entries to Annapolis Striders first time marathoners (meaning I’ve never, ever run a marathon) We will set aside the guaranteed spots for first timers on a first come/first served basis and issue them at a future date (TBD), so don’t delay in getting in Strider application. You must train with us to receive one of the guaranteed spots, and you must pay for registration. Don’t want to run the Marine Corps Marathon? We will also offer training schedules for the Baltimore Marathon, too, or other marathons if so desired.
No charge for Annapolis Strider members. Race Fee payment to MCM or Baltimore Marathon required. We DO NOT register you for MCM or Baltimore, so get your race registration application in early for Baltimore.

Directions to Jonas Green Park parking lot:
From Annapolis – go over Naval Academy Bridge on Rte 450, turn right just over the bridge and make the first right as if you were going to the Severn Inn. Continue straight into the parking lot for the park. We will check with the Severn Inn to see if we can use their lot as well. Additional parking should be available at the WWII monument. Do not park on the grass or in any unmarked spaces.
