What is the Half Marathon Training Program?
The Half Marathon Training program is a 12 week supported training program aimed at preparing FIT members with a solid running base to complete the Australian Running Festival in Canberra on 10 April 2022. The primary objective of the program is to deliver a training program which prepares participants to get to the start line of the event without injury.
The training program will be delivered via Basecamp (please note that access is provided to the Basecamp app on registration for the program).
Who should register?
The program is targeted to FIT Members that have previously either run 10 km or more and are currently running regularly at least three times per week. Participants are aiming to either complete their first half marathon, or are interested in competing in their subsequent half marathons.
Participants should be able to
- Complete a 10km run as a minimum requirement.
- Be able to attend the majority of training sessions throughout the 12 week period. Di Evans (lead coach) will be assisted by several accredited coaches, to enable participants to
- Register for, and participate in, the Australian Running Festival being held on 10 April, 2022.
What is the commitment?
Training sessions will include five general coached training sessions (Run days will be Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday), with other days used as cross training days. The program will commence on Tuesday 11 January for 12 weeks, with the Tuesday 11 January at 6am being the introduction session before running at 6.30am.
What equipment do I need?
Coaches will provide sessions on specifics during an information morning session as part of the program.
