This program targets our more experienced long distance runners who wish to improve their race performance for spring distance events such as the RRCA 10 Mile Club Challenge and the B&A Marathon and Half-Marathon.
This is a “fat-ass” style training program: participants are expected to provide their own hydration and nutrition on group runs (e.g. Gatorade, Tailwind, NUUN, GU, bananas, bagels, bacon, etc… whatever secret sauce you swear by.) . Many of the workouts can be completed with existing training groups such as the Tuesday Night group and the Naptown Running Buddies, or individually.
For the 10 mile or 1/2 only programs, able to run 7 miles comfortably. For the marathon program, able to run 10 miles comfortably and currently averaging at least 25 miles a week.
