Fox Valley Marathon Training Runs will be back in the summer of 2014!
Unlike street marathons, Fox Valley's course along the river trails
gives runners the chance to experience the actual race course all summer long.
The race committee and local sponsors will host a series of 6 weekend morning runs on the course,
- beginning with a 10 mile run on Saturday, June 21 (6 miles for half marathoners)
- adding 2 miles for marathon training and 1 mile for half marathon training every other weekend
- and finishing with a 20 mile/11 mile run on Saturday, August 30; 3 weeks before race day.
See the Training Run schedule below.
By the end of the series, you will have run the entire Fox Valley Marathon course,
making your race day marathon as comfortable and familiar as possible.
The runs will include pace guides running near 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12+ minutes per mile,
and cost nothing to join.
The runs were a big hit in previous years so
we are anxious to see some familiar faces, make some new friends, and show off our revised course along the beautiful Fox River trails
and through our host communities.
