If you have ever wanted to finish a half or full marathon or run a personal best but didn't know how to begin or train, this is the class for you! This class will cover setting a marathon goal, designing a marathon schedule, selecting a half or full marathon, nutrition, hydration, weather, pre-race routines, and post-race recovery. The course structure will consist of classroom lectures, discussions, and some running. All participants are encouraged to meet outside of class time for organized runs. In addition, there will be opportunities to meet with the instructor at different locations outside of regularly scheduled classes for organized runs.
This course is recommended for individuals that have been running at least 30 minutes per day, 4-7 days per week for 6 weeks. You must be able to run at least 6 miles the first week of class. The overall objective of this course is to provide a running environment where you are encouraged and inspired, and where you learn how to train for, complete, and survive a half or full marathon. Class will meet Tuesdays from 5:45-6:45 PM at UFM, 1221 Thurston St., and workouts will be Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 PM at Memorial Stadium outdoor track (meet at south end).
