Eugene Running Company's Eugene Marathon and Half Marathon Team
With Bella Richardson and Colleen Wedin Saturdays at 7:30 am
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.
