Half Marathon

14 weeks: Choose your goal event!

This program has been specifically designed to give you enough time to train before your goal event. Based off evidence based training principals, we have refined this program over the last 6 years to give you the best chance of completing the race, injury free. We train as a group for the major Sydney and interstate races, but if you have a different race, you are more than welcome to follow the program and train with us on your own timeline!

Common Queries

How fit do I need to be?

To enjoy the half marathon program and race day, we recommend you can run or run/walk at least 8km. We progress you safely and efficiently to 21km based on your running experience.  We are a recreational running group, meaning we love to train hard and work towards a goal but we don’t take it too seriously and love to have some fun along the way.

How many people in the group?

Our weekday sessions are between 5 and 15 people. Keeping the groups small means that we can give our runners as much attention as they deserve. On the weekend as we all join together for our long run, we get up to 30 runners which means you will always find someone who runs at your pace and to have a chat to.

Do I have to attend the 3 recommended sessions?

No, however if you are newer to running, have a particular time goal, are carrying an injury or are prone to injury it is highly recommended to attend the strength and interval/technique classes. The long run is an absolute must for all runners, as this is where you get the most race practice both physically and mentally. If you can’t attend all sessions face-to-face, have a chat to us about combining the face-to-face program with a home program.

Is race registration included?

No, but a running singlet is! You are responsible for registering for the race yourself, so keep an eye out for the early bird registration dates.
