Saturday and Sunday Group Runs Offered
The half marathon training team schedule gives you the option to do your Group Runs on Saturday or Sunday mornings from City Stadium. Need directions to City Stadium? We’ve got you covered! Please indicate your preference of day on the entry form when you register online. There is a limit of 800 participants in the Saturday group run sessions and a limit of 400 participants in the Sunday group run sessions. The first group runs will be Saturday, August 8 and Sunday, August 9. There will be a short introductory meeting beginning at 7:30 a.m. followed by our first group run. Beginning the following week, starting times will change depending on team assignments. You will receive emails updating you on your start times.
After your first group run on August 8 or 9, you will receive a booklet with your half marathon training team schedule. Each recommended training run is outlined in this book along with training advice and suggestions. We hope you’ll enjoy the 14-week program and love sharing the experience with hundreds of other motivated Richmond runners. We can’t wait to join you in celebrating your progress each weekend!
There will be clinics held on everything from injury prevention to nutrition to shoes. Check back in early summer for dates and times.
