Summer is a fun time of the year to run some of your favorite races. It’s also a great time to be outside. Do yourself a favor and join the Forerunners Main Street Marathon and Half Marathon Clinic. This 16 week clinic will keep you motivated and training consistently. A friendly environment with multiple pace groups will mean you will have great company and appropriately challenging runs. Come out and meet new people, enjoy the benefits of a structured training group, and prepare yourself for the next challenge. Sign up today and join the Forerunners crew.

Each Saturday morning at 8 am, Coach Carey Nelson will lead a defined long run. These long runs will start out at 10 km and gradually build up to 20 km in the lead up to the Victoria Half and Full Marathon, and Fall Classic Half. For each session, we will provide a course map and targeted pace groups. Each group will have a trusty leader to guide you through the run and provide enjoyable company. Along the route there will be at least one aid station, where Coach Carey will be handing out drinks and providing knowledge. Finish back at the store with the satisfaction of accomplishing something positive before you embark on the rest of your weekend.
