Training Program

24 Weeks to a Marathon

It’s about moving. It’s about getting healthy!

The Modesto Marathon is March 19, 2017. Want to run it?  Walk it?  26.2 miles…13.1 miles… 3.1 miles? It’s your choice. Whether you’re a runner, a walker, a little bit of both, or you have been too busy with work, family, and life to think about your own health, let the Modesto Marathon Training Group help you “move forward.”  Move forward to a new you.

It’s the journey…

Let us take you on the journey. Not only the journey to the finish line in March, but the journey of a healthy lifestyle, a lifelong journey in pursuit of fitness and health. This is one journey that doesn’t have a finish line. While the short term goal may be finish line on March 19, 2017, the ultimate goal is to help you realize you are important and you’re worth taking the time to invest in yourself.

You’ll develop new healthy habits, both physical and mental. You’ll meet new friends with similar interests, goals, time constraints, and maybe even the same types of excuses!

So many of you are committed to the needs of your family that you forget to take care of yourself. Join our group, and let us help you adopt a lifestyle for a lifetime!
