Train for the Los Angeles Marathon!
Looking to check off that important "bucket list" item and race the infamous 26.2 miles, or ready to get back on the roads for another? If you're ready, then so are we. Training for long distance endurance runs can be arduous. But, with the help of an expert coach who has completed multiple marathons, and the support of a close-knit running community, the hard work you put into those training miles becomes a rewarding and lasting memory. Lace up those shoes and let's hit the roads together.
This 15-week training program is for advanced-intermediate participants who run regularly, and have a solid foundational mileage base.
In addition to detailed training plans, the program incorporates educational components, speakers, weekly email communication, expert coaching, mentoring, and pacing to help inspire and motivate you along the journey. Your coach will instruct you on proper running form, hydration, nutrition, best shoe strategy, the right gear and apparel, strength and cross training, and mileage/pace improvement.
