About the Clinic

Beginning Wednesday, November 2nd, you can train through the fall and winter with Forerunners North Shore as we build towards the First Half Half Marathon on February 12th, 2023. This clinic includes Wednesday evening workouts (6:20 pm), Saturday morning long runs (8:00 am), a detailed training schedule, twice-weekly workout newsletters, email access to Coach Jerry, and a guaranteed entry to the race.
This is a 15-week clinic, so we’ll be able to progress our training in a relaxed and gradual manner from our initial long run distance of 10 km on November 12th to our longest distance of 20 km three weeks before race day. We’ll never increase the distance of our long run more than 2 km at a time.

November 2nd through February 12th


What Can I Do To Prepare?

For your first long run on November 2nd, you should come prepared to complete 10 km at an easy effort. Wear warm, breathable clothing, and use reflective gear and lights, particularly on Wednesday evenings. Although we are all attempting to achieve our own individual goals, we encourage you to embrace the cooperative and supportive attitude that training together helps all of us achieve greater things than if we were to run separately.

What Should I Expect?

Expect to be a part of a supportive and friendly group of fellow runners, coaches, and leaders that will help you enjoy your running experience at whatever level you're currently training at. We have half marathon groups that range from a goal time f
