Train for a Half Marathon with Us!

13.1 Fall Edition

Welcome to Fleet Feet Pleasanton Half Marathon (13.1 miles) Training Program. 

This program is friendly for both the first time half marathoner and the person that wants to feel stronger at the finish of their next 13.1. We use the run/walk method of training to help you reach your goals in a non-competitive and fun group environment. The first group long run is 6 miles. A good base will help you to succeed in the half marathon distance.

Our goal race is the Healdsburg Wine Country Half Marathon, a great opportunity for a getaway weekend in wine country! 

NEW additions to the Fall 2018 training program-

1)  The race fills up, so we will have a handful of reserved spots for the race for our trainees who would like to register for the race.  This is a guaranteed entry, not a paid entry.

2)  BRICK Northern California will be offering a Functional Fitness class, just for the Half Marathon training group.  The class will be held every Thursday evening at 6:30 pm.  This will be an optional $50 add on to the base training fee of $110.  We highly encouraging this additional class to improve core strength and speed during the race.
