Half Marathon

A 12-week build-up program for half marathon runners.

This low-key program will guide the participants from a base of 6 miles up to a long run of 14 miles in 12 weeks. The goal will be for all who complete the program to be able to complete the B&A Trail Half Marathon or an alternative half marathon around the same timeframe. You must sign up for the race on your own. They CLOSE OUT so sign up early!

B&A Half Marathon Training 2019

January 12, 2019 - March 31, 2019

Welcome to the Annapolis Striders 2019 Winter Half Marathon Training Program. With commitment and focus over the 12 week training period you will gradually extend your weekly training distance from 6 miles to the Half Marathon…13.1 Miles.

The target race for the 2019 training program is the B&A Marathon and Half Marathon that will be held on Sunday March, 31, 2019.  While there is no charge for the program that will guide your training for the 12 weeks leading up to the race, like most bibbed events the B&A Marathon and Half Marathon itself has a registration fee. Sign up early, as most events have a cap on the number of participants and this popular Striders race is no exception. The B&A Marathon and Half is a popular and relatively flat Boston Marathon Qualifying Race that normally draws interest from runners outside the area. Sign up now. We will prepare you.

Please review the 2019 Winter Marathon Half Marathon Training Announcement and the Training plan at the links provided below.  The generic Half Marathon Training Plan is intended to address the needs of a group of runners of varying ability and experience; runners must assess themselves continuously as they implement the plan.
