full & Half marathon club

You’re ready: to prepare for and run a few of the BIG ONES: the 26-mile marathon, and/or the half-marathon.

Join other like-minded challenge seekers, get expert guidance and coaching, get into great events… and experience a tailored program designed to make you successful… and really enjoy it!

The PEN RUN Marathon / Half-marathon Club is a unique, dynamic, and enjoyable way to get ready for the challenge you’ve been looking for.

Spring Program: January 7 , 2017-May, 2017 at 7:00 am Saturdays and 6:30 pm Mondays and Wednesdays / Fall Program: June –November 2017, though you are invited and welcome to start running with us now / at any time.

Program Days:

Our existing schedule of Monday & Wednesdays at 6:30PM, and Saturdays at 7AM will continue through 2016-17.

Program Highlights:

Based on consistent, purpose-driven 3 week cycles with ‘layering builds’. The Program is ‘scalable’, with all workouts and distances set for the new or ‘rebuilding’ runner. Workouts can easily scale-up for any athlete looking for more; for example, if the program calendar shows 3x-miles scheduled, it’s easy to take that workout up to 4 or 5 or 6x, if you need more.

Coaching: Marathon Club veterans Russ Fraser and Will McKinnon

Advisor: Paul Williams, 3-time Olympian and 2hr 13minute marathon competitor
