    Joe Henderson's Marathon Team
    Sunday 7:30 am Joe Henderson's Marathon Team
    Training for a long race goes better if you run with a group that shares your goal and a coach who has helped runners reach it before. You set the goal, and we provide the group support and coaching advice for carrying out a proven training plan.
    Our latest program trains runners for the 2015 Eugene Marathon. This is the 22th round of Joe Team, which the Eugene Running Company has sponsored since its launch in 2005. More than 300 runners have successfully completed this program, with a 99%-plus finish rate.
    The Team meets at the Running Company on Sunday mornings at 7:30 A.M. The fee for the marathon program is $125.
    We welcome runners of all abilities and experience levels. However, we strongly recommend that you have run at least six miles before this training begins. Eugene Running Company group training on Sundays and Mondays can help you build toward our starting distance. To reserve a spot on this team, which is limited to 40 runners, contact the coach:

    Eugene Running Company's Eugene Marathon and Half Marathon Team
    With Bella Richardson and Colleen Wedin Saturdays at 7:30 am Eugene Running Company's Eugene Marathon and Half Marathon Team
    We invite you to join Coach Bella Richardson and Colleen Wedin and the Eugene Running Company’s 2016 Eugene Marathon/ Half-Marathon Team.
    Join us as we prepare for the Eugene Marathon and Half-Marathon held this year on May 1st 2016 (or any May marathon/half-marathon). This Team is for beginners and advanced marathoners/ half-marathoners. Group members enjoy the support and motivation of being part of a marathon team. Throughout the 18-week program, members will receive a training schedule, expert coaching advice and guidance, and group long runs with aid stations. Participants also receive free team uniform shirts and 10% store discounts.
    Runners who are looking to improve their overall performance or qualify for Boston or New York have the option of following an advanced/performance-oriented training program. This includes speed work, higher mileage, and specific  long runs.
    The group is open to runners of all abilities, but we do ask that you have completed a long run of at least 6 miles before beginning the marathon training in January 9th (4 miles for half-marathon runners). This is a running only marathon and half-marathon training program with a marathon cut-off goal time of 6:00.
    Bella Richardson and Colleen Wedin are experienced marathon coaches who have been coaching all distances up to marathon. They have run several self-coached marathons, half marathons, and ultra marathons and are both Boston Marathon qualifiers. The group meets at the Eugene Running Company every Saturday at 7:30 AM starting January 9th. There is a kick-off run January 2nd at 7:30am. Come to ask questions and try out the group! Cost is $125 for 4 months of training for Eugene Marathon or $85 for 3 months of training for the Eugene Half Marathon.
