Sports Backers Half Marathon Training Team

It turns out one really is the loneliest number… especially when you’re training for a half marathon. So join up with the Sports Backers Half Marathon Training Team as you embark on a 14-week program that prepares you for the Nov. 10 Markel Richmond Half Marathon, a companion race of the Anthem Richmond Marathon. Our training teams have an incredible corps of experienced coaches, as well as dedicated SAG support for those long Saturday or Sunday runs, and we even offer informational clinics to keep you up-to-date on the latest in gear, nutrition, injury prevention and more. Did we mention this might be the coolest way to meet people in Richmond? Okay, so we don’t have proof, but we can guarantee you’ll end up with a few more pals than you had before.

Here is what some previous participants had to say about the program:

“I had trained and ran two half marathons by myself prior to joining the Half Marathon Training Team. The friendships I have made through this experience have been life changing and these people are part of my running family.”

– Eric Nachman

“Over the training weeks you meet new people, make new friends who help motivate you to accomplish your goals! Love the program, love the coaches and would say that if this is your first or tenth half, HMTT will help you cross the finish line!”
– Al Winkler

“Participating in the Half Marathon Training Team has been a life changing experience! It has built my confidence as a runner and introduced me to a network of coaches and friends who have pushed me to accomplish far more than I ever could have on my own.”
– Jane Lissenden
