The 2017 Philadelphia Marathon Training Program, sponsored by NEW BALANCE, is a 19 week program designed for runners who have previously run at least one 10k road race (completion of a half marathon suggested, but not required). The graduation race for this program is the 2017 Philadelphia Marathon on 11/19/17, but the program can also be used to train for any fall full marathon including (but not limited to): Newport Marathon (10/8/17), Hartford Marathon (10/14/17), Mount Desert Island Marathon (10/15/17), Baystate Marathon (10/22/17), Cape Cod Marathon (10/29/17), and New York City Marathon (11/5/17).
Each week will feature two organized and coached training workouts, including form lessons to help participants avoid injury and run more efficiently as well as strength training lessons specifically aimed for runners. All participants will receive a punch coupon (with TONS of savings!), weekly motivational and educational eNewsletters, a detailed daily training schedule (can be modified for your particular race timeline), a technical shirt, graduation party and more!
Whether it will be your 1st marathon or your 50th, this program is for you! All paces are welcome.
