Get in 13.1 Shape.


Whether you are a beginner or a competitive runner, proper training is the most important factor in preparing for a half marathon. Most half marathon training programs are approximately 3 months; you should have 4-6 months of running under your belt before starting your half marathon training.

Two of our sponsors offer training programs specifically tailored for The Middle Half. If you are not a Murfreesboro resident, be sure to check out your local gyms and parks & recreation departments for possible half marathon training programs.

Contact these organizations for their half marathon training information.
