Training for the Half and Full Marathon

Beginning October 5, join us at 6 a.m. every Saturday morning until race weekend at the Trak Shak in Homewood for free group training supported by the Trak Shak and the Birmingham Track Club (BTC). Runners and walkers of all skill levels are welcome. The group is led by the BTC Long Run Coordinator, Monica Henley assisted by running veterans, Alex Morrow and Jeff Martinez. 

A beginner-level 18 week training schedule is provided with room to build in cross training, speed work, tempo or hills to fit your skill level. We recommend that you be able to complete a 5k or can run 10 miles per week to begin the half marathon training and that you can complete a 10K, or run 15 miles per week to begin the marathon training.

Water and Powerade are provided every 2 - 3 miles by volunteers. Follow the group and receive weekly invitations here. E-mail or with any questions.

Mark your 2020 calendars for our two Course Preview Runs on Sundays, January 19 and January February 2.  We'll run one loop of our course with three fluid stations and two GU stops available.  The runs will begin at 6:30 a.m.   Complimentary coffee, hot chocolate and doughnuts will be served at the end of the run. 

Don't forget to register for the Regions SuperHero 5k to shake your legs out the day before the big race. We're offering a mulit race discount if you register for the Regions Superhero 5k and the half/full marathon. Save $10 off your total online registration cost at checkout.
