Summer takes on a different meaning for runners chasing success in fall marathons. As the calendar marks 100 days to race day we begin our 100 Days programming, built upon the understanding that 14 weeks is just about the optimal length of time to train for a singular goal: long enough to make real fitness gains, but not so long that you have time to lose focus. As we approach 100 Days to this fall’s Marathon Majors we invite you to join us for our community group runs, designed to be fun, motivating and the perfect preparation to hit your fall goals.
Sign up for the races and communities you are interested in below so you can stay up to speed on the activations & runs on the calendar as we count down to race day.
Ready to Race
As we embark on the journey toward Fall Majors, we invite you to join us on our group runs along the way to ensure that you’re part of the pack come race day. Join us in NYC for a full 100 Days build-up with guided weekly runs designed to get you ready for the five boroughs. In Chicago, we’ll have select meet-ups along the way – stay tuned for details so you don’t miss out.
- Route options building up in distance towards race day
- Central starting points with bag drop
- Multiple pacing groups
- Coaches on hand to answer any training-related questions
- Elevated runs to include talks, unique routes, and insider tips to enhance your training experience
- Coffee & bananas
- Water stops on route
There’s nothing quite like the energy and passion of New York City. From Brooklyn to 1st Avenue and Central Park, the noise is as relentless as the course, making this a bucket-list race for runners the world over. We can’t wait to host our first full 100 Days series from our new home in Williamsburg.
Kicking off the fall Major Marathons is the fastest and flattest of them all. Join us in Berlin as we get ready for race day with a few long runs: A destination run to Grunewald Forest, and a marathon pace long run along the marathon course. Both runs will be supported with run leaders, pacers, water stops, coffee, and more. Sign up below.
AUG 6: GRUNEWALD FOREST
SEPT 10: MARATHON PREVIEW RUN
The Chicago Marathon is a love-letter to the city’s diverse neighborhoods, keeping you engaged and entertained with every hairpin turn. Plus it’s flat – really flat. This year we’re hosting two runs to get you ready for race day. A bus run out of the city, and a marathon pace run along the lakefront.
