2018 Fall Marathon Training
Welcome to 2018 Fall Marathon Training! As always we will offer several different programs to meet everyone's different goals and ability levels. But a few things will remain the same between them all - a super fun and encouraging environment full of unique opportunities, best-in-town perks, and professional run and walk training. With rotating training locations (Brentwood, Green Hills, Cool Springs, Downtown) and other group run options during the week, we think we have the most versatile and PREMIUM training programs in town!
