BWRC TRAINING PROGRAM
We offer two training programs - Novice and Veteran.
Novice: The Novice program is geared for those taking on their first or second marathon. Runners should have completed at least one half marathon and be comfortable running 12-16 miles per week before starting the program. Pace Group Leaders will set a steady pace and offer tips and advice on running a marathon. View Novice Plan here
Veteran: The Veteran program is geared for those having completed two or more marathons and are comfortable running 25-30 miles per week before starting the program. We do not currently anticipate having Pace Group Leaders for the Veteran program; however, experienced runners will typically partner up with others of similar paces. View Veteran Plan here
