2022 Fall Marathon Training Schedule

Our marathon training schedule this year is based on Hal Higdon's Novice 2 Training Schedule. We've selected this level, because at the higher (Intermediate and Advanced) levels, Hal moves the long runs to Sunday to allow for faster/shorter pace runs on Saturday. Please check out Hal's excellent website for more details and training information, including what to do with the rest of your week. This schedule includes running a half marathon as part of your training. For the half marathon weekend, I've provided links to local (within a 2 hour drive) races, where I could find them. Of course, you're free to just run 13.1 with the group or on your own, find your own race, or adjust your training schedule to run a race on a different weekend. (For example, Riley's Rumble might fit well for Baltimore training, too.)
