Training Meeting August 28 for Little Rock Marathon

Begins at 6PM in the River Market, 3rd floor, 400 President Clinton Avenue.
An informational meeting for individuals interested in training for the 2013 Little Rock Marathon and companion races will be Tuesday, August 28.

The meeting begins at 6PM in the River Market, 3rd floor, 400 President Clinton Avenue.

The Little Rock Marathon Training Program, presented by KARK Channel 4, is a free running/walking program created to prepare individuals who plan to take part in one of the races next March.

In addition to the marathon (26.2 miles) distance, schedules are available for the half marathon (13.1 miles), 10K (6.2 miles), and 5K (3.1 miles).

According to Hobbit Singleton, head coach of the 2013 training program, "The number one thing we hear from the public is 'I'm new at this and I don't want to look stupid. We have athletes at every level and we have all - at one time or another - done something in training that made us look stupid (coaches definitely included."

"Our training program is really a year-round program," Singleton said. "After the first Little Rock Marathon in 2003, the group never stopped training and we never stopped coaching."

"The training schedules are very do-able and are for every level of fitness," she said. "We had about 2,300 people in last year's program, which was up over 16% from the previous season. Our program caters to first time marathoners and first time runners/walkers (meaning they have never run a step).
