Avenue of the Giants Marathon
$99, $79 for returning participants
Training times are Saturday mornings at 7:30 am, various locations around Sonoma County, and Tuesday evenings at
5:30 pm, location TBA.
The Full Marathon Training Program is designed to prepare runners for their first-ever marathon, or to help seasoned runners meet a new performance goal. The program includes a training plan designed by experienced coaches, group runs twice weekly, and a technical t-shirt. If you have completed a few half marathons, are looking for a new challenge, and have thought about "someday" doing a full marathon, this is the year. The full marathon training program is broken into two parts to give you a chance to see if the marathon program is for you, without the commitment of paying for a 16 week program. The first half trains you for a half marathon by increasing your mileage gradually at the intermediate level. To get the most out of this group, we require that you currently run or run/walk 9 miles, have completed a half marathon, and are able to maintain a 12 minute per mile pace.
Part 1: January 7 to February 24, $99
Part 2: February 25 to May 7, $99 ($79 for prior FF participants)
