CONTINUING FOR 2020 - FREE Runcoach Online Training, Plus Runcoach Gold! 

Thousands of our participants in recent years have trained with Runcoach, an adjustable, customizable online plan.

Thanks to our friendship with these folks and their partnership with Garmin, we will again offer a free, personalized online training option to all 2020 Marathon & ½ Marathon registrants.

NEW this year, we will also offer Runcoach Gold, which includes support from world-class coaches, for $25.

You can sign up for either option when you register for this year’s race or whenever you are ready to begin training … yes, you still do need to train!
