Saturday Marathon Training Group

If a spring or summer marathon is on your calendar, make sure you check out Rick Smith's Saturday Marathon Training group for some good company and conversation, as well as group motivation for those long training runs. The group meets Saturday mornings and is led by Berkeley's good friend Rick Smith. The long runs are guided by the book, "Run Less, Run Faster," though varying pace groups are designed to accommodate a wide range of runners and their training plans. Rick publishes the routes on MapMyRun before each Saturday.

Besides marathoners, many others join the group on Saturdays for shorter distances -- and routes are designed to let you adjust as needed. Runs typically start and finish at a local Madison coffee shop like Starbucks, Panera, Victor Allen's or EVP for the convenience of before-run restrooms and after-run coffee, food and conversation.

Join the Facebook group for weekly run announcements!

Email Rick with questions.
