Go The Distance

Good Times Running Co.

Go The Distance is an 18 week program designed to get you to your best Marathon or Half Marathon ever!  Each week will include 4 in person coached sessions. This year you have the choice of joining us in the mornings, or if you're an evening runner you can choose the "Saturday Only" option for the group on Saturdays and do your weekday evening workouts on your own.

Our Saturday Long Run will be mapped and supported with hydration stations.  Our weekday sessions will include a mix of workouts, such as hills, track runs and tempo runs at locations around the Cinco Ranch and Katy area. 

Your training plan will be delivered through the Training Peaks platform and will include workouts for the additional days that we are not meeting in person.  Back again by popular demand this year is a once a week strength class with a personal trainer.  Registration also includes access to a private Facebook page with weekly content and this year, an awesome soft long sleeve hoodie!
