All the amazing perks of the Louisville Distance Project training program without the group meetups.
The Louisville Distance Project is the most comprehensive training program that Louisville has to offer. By partnering with local health and fitness professionals, product vendors, skillful coaches, LDP Mentors, and local race organizers, our program provides an unparalleled training experience. Whether you're a seasoned marathoner or looking to do the Louisville Triple Crown of Running and/or the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon for the first time ever, these groups are designed to help meet your needs as you crush your goals! Spring training starts on Monday, January 4th. While the schedule is designed to have participants run on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, you can change the schedule to better suit your personal needs, just make sure that you have two built in rest days. This group is open to runners and walkers of all paces. Our 16 week training program is specifically designed to fully prepare you to run 5k Fitness Classic, City Run 10k, and the Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k as well as the Kentucky Derby Festival Mini & Full Marathon, but we can make training schedule adjustments to accommodate different goal races.
NEW THIS SEASON, we've added Saturday TRAIL long runs for those interested in training for a spring trail half marathon, such as the Backside Trail Marathon, just please let our training program director know of your interest in this for planning purposes.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THIS GROUP IS RIGHT FOR YOU? You should be comfortable running at least a 3 mile distance to begin the half marathon program, and a 6 mile distance for the full marathon program. If you can run, run/walk, or walk one of those distances to start, then you can participate in this group. If you can't, don't worry! We also have a 5k program as well, which will take place later this spring.
