For more than 26 years, our award-winning program has amazed new members, as they realize that the program works and they really are able to complete their first marathon or half-marathon successfully. New-member orientation starts with one mile. Over the entire training season, we increase the distance gradually to prevent over-training and instill confidence.
In addition, our club has many veteran members who train year-round for 5Ks, 10Ks, triathlons, half marathons, full marathons and even ultra marathons … across the country and around the world.
