The fall 2015 half marathon training will start with a kickoff workshop on Sunday,  August 30th at First State Bank in Hurricane and training will last for 9 weeks to prepare for the Marshall Half Marathon on November 1st.  Go here for more information. 

The 2014 season was our biggest yet with 485 participants training for their first or fastest 5k.  Finish rates are very high and 100% of our runners who line up on race day make it to the finish line. If you’ve ever wanted to run but didn’t know where to start this program is for you.
