Get ready for the 2014 Missoula Marathon or Half Marathon with Run Wild Missoula's training program for anyone. You don't have to be a semi-professional athlete, former track star, 5 percent body fat or logging 30 miles a week to participate. All you have to be is someone who wants to complete the half or full Missoula Marathon on Sunday, July 13, 2014.
The class starts with distances as low as 2 miles, but how fast you run absolutely does not matter. For beginners there is a run/walk option. Beginners who have not run a step as of the first day of class will be encouraged to set the Missoula Half Marathon as your goal. (Yes, you can do this. You have six ½ hours to complete the Half Marathon course and you have 4½ months to train.)
The program begins conservatively but you'll find the miles start adding up quickly, even if you're a more advanced runner. By the end of this training class you will be ready for race day.
With the Training Program participants receive:
* Coaching by Anders Brooker, Cross Country and Track Coach at Hellgate High School and Owner Runner's Edge
* Comprehensive Training Program for Full and Half Marathon Trainees
* Group Runs on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. and Sundays at 8 a.m.
* Guest Speakers on Nutrition, Injury Prevention, Running Form and More!
* "In Training" Shirt
* Handheld Water Bottle
* Aid Stations
* Gels on 5 longest runs (the same brand used on the course of the Missoula Marathon and Half Marathon)
*Post Class Party
This class sponsored by the Runners Edge and Cherry Creek Radio.
