Women's Half Marathon

Join us for the Publix Savannah Women's Half Marathon on April 2nd, 2016
Training begins on December 15th, 2015

The Half Marathon Training Program is a 16 week program which meets three times a week designed to prepare runners/walkers for their first ever endurance event or to help seasoned runners meets a new performance goal. This program will educate on endurance training principles, hydration, and nutrition techniques, body awareness, pacing, and running anatomy. 

The Program meets three time a week during the training period (Tuesday/Thursday morning OR evening and all groups on Saturday morning). The workouts will last about an hour to an hour and a half as we increase mileage throughout the season. in addition to the workouts there are educational seminars, motivational speakers, newsletters keeping you up to date, group support, free injury screening through Ledesma Sports Medicine, fun runs, catered breakfasts every few months, and expert coaching/mentoring to help inspire and motivate you on this training journey. 

Participants will also get a few discounted shopping days at Fleet Feet Sports Savannah during the duration of the program plus chances to win fun freebies!

Q: Where do we meet?

Q: What does the training schedule look like?

AWe will be starting at smaller mileages (around 3 miles) and building over the course of the program. It will never change suddenly or dramatically and you will always be well prepared for any increased distance. You can also expect some track and hill workouts (just a few for the beginners and more for the intermediate group).

Q: Do I have to be running the same goal race as the program is designed for?

A: No, you are more than welcome to run ANY spring race and still train with us! Just make sure that you get with the coach beforehand and talk about your dates and tapering needs.

Q: I am a very slow runner.  Is this program still right for me?

A: Absolutely. We want to inspire and educate runners/walkers of all levels, regardless of pace! We will always have coaches and mentors to run alongside you, so you need not worry about being alone on runs. Just make sure you are meeting the milege requirements as posted on the registration page before signing up.

Q: If I miss workouts, or I have to consistently miss one of the days of our weekly meetings does that mean I cannot be involved in the program?

A: Of course you can still be involved! We would love to have every trainee at every workout, but understand that life and obligations may get in the way. You can always attend the other session for the day if you miss your normal time slot. Also, just make sure that you are completing your training runs independently (or with a buddy) so you don't fall behind on your progress! Please let your coach know when you are expected to miss so we don't worry about you!

Q: What if do not live in the Savannah area, but I want to train for the race?

A: You can still train with C.R.E.W. through our virtual program. For more information on our virtual training program, click here.
