Spring 2024 Peninsula Runners
HALF & Full Marathon Clinic and Walking clinic!
(aka 301 and the 401)
Spring 2024 PR Marathon & HALF Marathon Club (aka 301 and the 401)
SATURDAYS AT 7:00 AM AND WEDNESDAYS @ 6:00 P.M although there is an early group at 5:15 PM as well.
The first session starts on Wednesday January 3rd, 2024 followed by the first Saturday long run on January 6th from our new location here in Walnut Grove (we are at Unit 201E, 20999 88th Avenue, Langley BC right above the Life Labs and really close to Gourmet Donuts).
The Wednesday night workout at 5:15 PM or 6.00 PM is with long time clinic leader Kathie and past national champion Phil (he has a 28.40 10K and 63 minute ½ marathon best). We strongly recommend you attend this session as this can make the difference in achieving your goals. This type of running gives you strength and speed to help you run more efficiently and ultimately faster.
How far should I be able to run before joining the ½ or full marathon program??
You should be able to comfortably run about 40 minutes in duration in order to train for the ½ marathon and 60 minutes for the marathon.
What is the difference between the 301 and 401 group?
The 301 group is for anyone wanting to run a half or full marathon. You will run different distances for your long runs and intensities in the workouts but you are all in the 301 group. If you do not want to RUN a half marathon but would like to walk one then the 401 group is for you! Many who used to run now find that walking can be better for our knees and joints but still want to go and do races. Walking has become a popular part of most races these days and the 401 group will help get you ready to walk any 10 K or half marathon successfully.
Why join a full or ½ marathon training program??
Our program design is specifically developed to assist individuals in making the transition from shorter distance runs through to the full marathon distance. At Peninsula Runners we work hard to provide a safe, informative, fun, motivating, and rewarding clinic atmosphere. Everyone is welcome no matter what your pace is.
How long is the program??
The ½ and full marathon training program is 17 weeks long depending on which event you plan to run. We will help prepare and guide you to participate in a half or full marathon. The goal run this fall session is the Royal Victoria Marathon and Half Marathon on October 8th, 2023. However, if you have another fall goal event in mind, we can help you prepare for it as well by adjusting the schedule to fit your race.
The cost of the program is $100 (taxes included). This includes; a Saturday morning long run, a Wednesday night workout, a PR run shirt and 10% discount on store purchases in the store at all times. Most of the workouts will start and finish at our new Langley Store location. Each week we try to run our long runs on different scenic courses. Come find out why everyone in our clinic is having so much fun and success. Our goal is to help prepare you to enjoy your running experience and want to continue running for a lifetime. One of the big keys to a group like this is that when you train together it helps you push yourself a little more than you could on your own. Running can be fun and challenging at the same time. It is what we love here at Pen Runners!
