This Special Training Package Includes the Race Registration Fee Too!


Training plans range in length from 10-16 weeks. The 10K race plan is 10 weeks and the half-marathon training plan is 12 weeks. Prior to the race training start date, a runner should have a solid running base leading into training. Each training plan comes with a consultation with Thad. After registering, Thad will follow-up via email to set up your consultation to discuss your current running, running fitness level, and your desired goals for the race.
