COME TRAIN WITH US FOR ROBIE!
Have you ever wondered if you could conquer the ROBIE Creek Half Marathon?! Well we at Fleet Feet are here to tell you, that if you can walk for 35 consecutive minutes, you absolutely CAN complete ROBIE by joining this Training Program!
Our 12 Week Robie Creek Training Program is led by Coach A.K., who placed in her Age Group at the race 6 days AFTER completing the Boston Marathon in 2018! Coach A.K. is passionate about this race, knowledgeable about the course, and excited to help others cross the finish line at Robie Creek. Whether you plan to run, run/walk interval, hike, or ruck the course, this Training Program is for you.
The unique programming approach is time-based, not distance based- allowing for ANY fitness level to participate and successfully complete the race in April. This also means that the entire group will always start AND finish together, although the distance completed each week will vary participant to participant. Come to our Info Session on January 15 at Fleet Feet Meridian from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm (come at any time during this window) to learn more about this unique and specialized training approach to this specialty race!
The ROBIE Creek Training Group culminates with our Goal Race on April 20th - The Robie Creek Half Marathon. We will have a group Sign Up Party on Monday February 19th at 11:30am so we can all be online together at HIGH NOON to secure our registrations together. Coach A.K. will be able to help you on that day if you need it. Registrations are very limited and signing up is time-sensitive; but never fear! There are ALWAYS bibs to purchase at packet pickup from people that signed up but are unable to do the race :) See race webpage here for more information.

Learn what past training program participants have to say about the program and Coach A.K!
“Working with FleetFeet and Coach A.K. was rewarding and incredibly insightful to beginning a new fitness program. I was a competitive athlete for most of my adolescence until I suffered a severe, and then repeated, knee injury. Working with A.K. was so easy and she was super responsive to working with me through injury questions and even providing feedback and guidance while I was traveling for work and couldn’t make the regular group meet ups. A.K. has a such a positive and contagious energy that makes even painful workouts fun, and she is a great mentor and coach. She’s generous with her time and it’s very obvious that running and coaching are true passions for her. I would recommend the FleetFeet running program and coach A.K. to anyone of any fitness level seeking to grow and accomplish walking or running goals.”

"I have always enjoyed running and I have wanted to run a half marathon but was not sure how to train. I did some research on Pinterest and just ran then one day on Facebook I saw a Fleet feet group with AK hosting a running workshop. I thought this would be a great opportunity to see how a real training program would look like compared to what I was looking at on Pinterest. Ak has such an amazing spirit and the love of running she has really is inspiring, anyone that also enjoys this hobby will be honored in running alongside AK. My biggest obstacle was pacing and figuring out how to breath when running. Ak helped me figure that out and what a world of difference that makes. With this training program she had all sorts of different exercises and mobility along the way which made a difference rather than just straight running. I will definitely be using AK in my future training for a full marathon."
"My goal for joining the fall training program was to run a 10k with no breaks, I met my goal but I also got to experience so much more! I’ve experienced sportsmanship, kindness, and the most uplifting energy from everyone. I can truly say every group run was a great one!"
We appreciate the support we recveive from our sponsors & partners!
