Spring Program: 2021 Cancelled

Fall Program: July - December 2021

Program Days:

Our existing schedule of Monday & Wednesdays at 5:30PM, and Saturdays at 7AM will continue through December 2021. No drop-in's will be allowed.

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.

Note: There is a draft copy of the Marathon Club Program (exclusive and proprietary to Peninsula Runners Company Inc.) at Pen Run’s White Rock store-location, for your review/preview upon request.

Coaching: Marathon Club veterans Russ Fraser and Will McKinnon

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

Our proven program is designed specifically to assist individuals in making the transition from shorter distance runs through to the full-marathon distance. It is also perfect for experienced 5K – 10K runners seeking that "next level" of long-distance running experience and fitness. You should be able to comfortably run 10km three times per-week.

Typically, each program (Spring and Fall versions) is 17 weeks long and will prepare you to participate in a half or full marathon (perfect for the BMO Marathon or the Fort Langley Half). With the Provincial Health Order moving into Phase 2, we are now permitted to exercise in outdoor group activities of 50 people, including Run Leaders, based on the attached Safety Plan.
