SATURDAY MORNING MARATHON TRAINING

Our Marathon training group meets about 7am at Lighthouse Beach for a 7:15 departure. Our leader and coach for 2019 is Lindsay DePaul.  Feel free to email Lindsay at ERCmarathon@gmail.com

The training targets the Chicago Marathon on October 13th, 2019, but many of us will run in other events.  Please let Lindsay know which marathon you are running this year.

We'll be using modified versions of the Hal Higdon training programs for "Novice" and"Intermediate" programs. You can find them here:

We mostly leave from Lighthouse Beach, but sometimes we have alternative starting points. 7/6 and 9/28 start Harms Woods lot closest to Golf Road.  8/10 start Runner's Edge Wilmette.

An important part of the training is hydration and nutrition. Thanks to our fellow club members we provide Gatorade and water along the route.  Please sign up to help set up our Hydration Stations!
