We are excited to bring a small sense of normalcy to our running routine with this socially responsible training program for a fall marathon.
The program will be limited to 45 registrants which may be split into two smaller groups who will meet at the store 15 minutes apart if the regulations on social gatherings remains at a maximum of 25 people. Efforts will be made to group people by pace so you have people to run "with" (6' apart!) each week.
All runners will be required to wear a mask before and after the run, as well as during the run when passing other people (masks may be removed while running as long as you remain 6' apart from other runners). Runners will also need to carry their own water).
While we are training for the Eversource Hartford Marathon on Saturday, October 10, there is a real possibility that this race may not occur due to restrictions on large social gatherings. If the race is canceled, Fleet Feet will host our own more intimate race on October 10.
If this doesn't deter you from training with us, read on!
START DATE: Sunday, June 28 at 6:30 am (meet at Fleet Feet - 1003 Farmington Ave, West Hartford 06107).
TRAINING: This 16-week program is open to first-time and repeat marathoners, but it is not appropriate for the new runner who doesn't have a solid base of training as we will run 10 miles during our first practice.
PROGRAM COST: The cost of the program is $165 (does not include race fee.) Price increases to $180 on July 6th.
PROGRAM BENEFITS: Program includes a proven training plan led by certified coaches who will inspire, motivate and share their knowledge and distance running secrets, a technical t-shirt, discounts on shoes, apparel, accessories and nutrition at Fleet Feet, weekly emails, a private Facebook group and a posse of new friends to train with!
