Run Far is a 24-week program to prepare you for longer distances and races like half marathons and full marathons. The Summer/Fall session concludes with the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon and Half Marathon. Run Far is open to all levels of runners!
From the start of the Run Far program, runners and walkers are grouped with others of similar abilities and goals. The Run Far weekly training schedule includes 3 different workouts, each designed to help the runner with pacing and endurance. Interval training, (speed workouts), tempo (pace running), hill running (strength), and progressively long runs (endurance) are combined with rest days and cross training to meet the goal results of the distance runner!
