3 PLAN OPTIONS:
1. Half Marathon Program PERSONALIZED – 14 Weeks – $180

With this program, the 14 week plan will be personalized to your pace, HR zones (if applicable), goals and history. Communication with coaches will be as often as needed to make sure that the plan is meeting your running needs. All group runs are included. 
2. Half Marathon Program BASIC – 14 Weeks – $100
With this program, the 14 week plan will have the same details as the personalized plan but will not be tailored to your specific running abilities. Coaches will review your training logs once a week. All group runs are included.
3. Half Marathon Program GROUP – 14 Weeks – $30
This is the most basic 14 week plan. Runners will have a schedule with the mileage required, but no detail as to type, pace or terrain. All group runs are included. 

**If you are already registered for the half marathon at the time of training program registration, you will receive a $10 discount.**

GROUP RUN CALENDAR:
Piney Woods Running Club will lead group training runs on the following Saturdays. After the run there will be a speaker with topics on nutrition, stretching, run form, etc. All runs leave from Java Jacks and start according to pace.
