26.3 Mile Finish Line Rock Party


Half Marathon Training

18-Week Half-Marathon Training Schedule
The 18-week training schedule below starts from a base of running 8-10 miles per week and gradually builds to a peak of running 25-30 miles per week, with a long run of up to 15 miles. For the last two weeks before the half-marathon, mileage is reduced to allow your body to recover and rest up for the big day.

All distances are in miles.
