Endurance Training

Winter/Spring Half-Marathon Training
January 12-May 8

Start your year on the right foot with Endurance Training at the Y! This group focuses on improving running/walking economy, balance training, nutrition, and recovery with your workouts. Group trainers will design programming for 5K, 10K, and half-marathon races, tailored to your personal experience and needs. All levels of experience are welcome, even none at all!

Due to COVID-19, we will meet and plan activites outside the YMCA building. If there is inclement weather, we will most likely not have organized training that day. Check-in will require face coverings to be worn.

Endurance Training is open to ages 16+ and is limited to 50 participants. Program rates are $85 per Y member or $200 per non-member. Please note that half-marathon race registrations are not included in the program fee.
