SPRING 2020 Peninsula Runners

HALF & Full Marathon Clinic and Walking clinic!

(aka 301 and the 401)

Spring 2020 PR Marathon & HALF Marathon Club (aka 301 and the 401)


When does the next one start??

The first session starts on Wednesday January 8th, 2020 followed by the first Saturday long run on January 11th.

The Wednesday night workout at 6:30 PM is with past national champion Phil Ellis (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 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 spring session is the BMO Vancouver Marathon on May 3rd, 2020. However, if you have another spring or summer goal event in mind, we can help you prepare for it as well by adjusting the schedule to fit your race.

How much will it cost and where do we run from and what does it include??

The cost of the program is $100 for the early entry if you join by December 31st, 2020 or $110 is our regular entry after this date (taxes included). This includes; a Saturday morning long run, a Wednesday night workout, and 10% discount on store purchases in the store at all times. We will also provide you with a training plan that will help guide you through the program. Guest speakers and coaches will also help to inform, inspire and improve your running and make you healthier in the process. Most of the workouts will start and finish at our Langley Store. 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!
