Program Benefits and General Info

Our program will offer an 11 week session that is designed to prepare you for the April 2, 2017 Cal Classic Half-Marathon that starts and finishes at Chukchansi Park and runs through Chaffee Zoo. 

Suggested Activity Level Prior To Start Of Training:

Participants should have been doing some exercising recently, but the program encourages walk/run intervals for those doing their first half who haven’t been running a lot. Experienced runners who are looking for a fast time will also be challenged as there will be schedules for both advanced and beginner half-marathoners.
