GWTC Tallahassee Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Training Group

The GWTC Tallahassee Marathon Training Group will offer 14 weeks worth of supported group training runs from Sunday, 1 November 2015, through Sunday, 31 January 2016. These training runs are aimed at preparing runners of varying skill levels for Tallahassee Marathon race day on Sunday, February 7th, 2016. Locations for the training group runs will vary by week and will include course preview runs along the actual race course every third week. Course support including water, electrolyte beverages, and energy gels will be provided at regular intervals along the long run route.  These Sunday runs (“Long Runs”) will begin at 7:00 a.m. from a rotating panel of long run venues.

Registration is free and sign-up can be found by clicking on this link (Eventbrite.com) for ‘GWTC Tallahassee Marathon Training Group.’ It is requested that each training group participant already have a reasonable mileage base under their feet prior to beginning our training schedule. For a full marathoner we request at least 18-20 miles of running per week prior to joining our group. For someone looking to run the half marathon in February we request a base of at least 12-15 miles of regular running prior to joining.
