Welcome to the Sacfit Virtual Full Marathon Training Program! First and foremost, while our initial program features will be entirely virtual, we anticipate meeting in smaller pace groups later on as circumstances improve and normalcy slowly returns.
In the meantime, virtual does not mean no interaction or minimal program features. Quite the contrary! We will have weekly Zoom team meetings to help keep everyone connected. In the team meetings, we will review the program features and details, provide maps to courses and routes along the Parkway that avoid the large crowds of bikes and people (to exercise responsible social distancing), provide video highlights of each course so you can review and familiarize yourself ahead of time, as well as conduct interactive seminars online, and a host of other stuff. So, if you are interested in training for your first half marathon or looking to finish with a faster time, or any other half marathon goal, then you've come to the right place!
Since our start in 2006, Sacfit has provided safe, sensible, and fun training programs for all fitness levels, ages, and goals. And once small groups in public are permitted, our staff of over 50 experienced and inspirational coaches will train with you every step of the way and help you get to the finish line! Whether a newer runner or walker, or an experienced runner, we the have a program just for you!
Information is every Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. If you can't make the Zoom meeting, no problem. We're recording it, so once you register in any subsequent week, you can review it at your convenience!
Sacfit is the largest training group in the Sacramento region, and has earned the distinction as the premiere running and walking club in the area. Over our 15-year history, we have trained nearly 14,000 individuals, helping each achieve his or her particular goal.
Our success is based on the following principles: a training program rooted in proven science, a staff of knowledgeable coaches and a broad spectrum of pace groups to match ability and goals ranging from Boston qualifying speed to easy walking and everything in between. So no matter what your fitness level, pace, goal, or experience, we have the program, coaches, and teammates to complement your journey from start to finish.
Next, to help keep you informed, interested, and motivated, Sacfit provides periodic seminars and clinics related to health and fitness, and also will provide, when social distancing is relaxed, aid stations for the longer workouts that are second to none, all of which create a fun, safe, and social environment.
Add up all these elements, and Sacfit is, literally, the place where fun, fitness, and friendships come together!
The 18-week Marathon training program is broken up into weekly segments, each segment consisting of three mid-week workouts (Mon, Tues, and Thurs) and a Saturday morning long workout.Monday workout is a shorter duration, so this one is on your own.Tuesday and Thursday workouts are more specialized, and when the social distancing is relaxed, we will resume our supervised venues for both days with morning and/or evening times - the most supervised midweek workouts of any program around. Saturday morning workouts are the longest of the week and you will be provided interactive maps to work with your phone, as well as markers along the routes to guide you along until smaller groups are permitted. Then, we'll resume our coach-led pace groups consisting of about 10-15 teammates.
Our 2020 Virtual Summer/Fall Full Marathon Training not only trains you for the CIM, but also provides an opportunity for beginning, intermediate, and advanced runners and walkers to participate in shorter-distance local running and walking events leading up to the CIM, including the 10-Mile Buffalo Stampede and Migration and Urban Cow Half Marathon.! However, should any of these events be canceled, Sacfit will be offering a virtual races for all these distances, including a full marathon with an actual course, a race jersey, medal, and opportunity to upload your results like a regular in-person race!
Finally, all Sacfit training programs offer flexibility because you never know what the future holds! Should you decide you need to adjust your goal later in the season, you can switch to any program at no additional cost!
