Training for The San Francisco Marathon provided by RUN365

RUN365 is the Official Training Program of The San Francisco Marathon and The Berkeley Half Marathon. Based in the beautiful Bay Area, RUN365 has multiple training programs that meet in San Francisco, Peninsula, East Bay, Pleasanton/Tri-Valley and South Bay areas.

USA Track and Field Certified Coaches and experienced pacers support runners throughout the training program to race day. From beginner to experienced runners, RUN365′s program is structured to improve fitness, speed, technique and strength. Athletes often come back to these programs for the community and friendships they have built along their training journey.

Interested in trail running? Get off the beaten path and mix up your training by enjoying some strides in the dirt along scenic coastal trails and atop the East Bay hills with training advice and maps from our experienced trail coaches. Trail runs are organized every Sunday during the Spring and Fall training program timelines with planned routes for you to explore new locations and practice your map navigation skills with fellow trail running RUN365 trainees.

Run with RUN365 all year round or join one of the upcoming training sessions. All runners are welcome to join RUN365 for a test run to experience how the program operates. See the program kickoff schedule below and come run! Feel free to email [email protected] for additional upcoming group run times and locations to schedule a test run.

12 Week Program (begins May 7th & 8th)

Experienced runners looking for accountability to keep them focused for the half or full marathon race should consider this option.  12 weeks is the perfect ramp up in training needed as long as you have already been running somewhat regularly and are experienced at running half and full marathon races.  Half marathon and 10k distance runners have a great option with this program to get race ready in just enough time, however please note, this is not an ‘off the couch” training option.  The 26 and 18 week programs are best suited for anyone considered an “off the couch” runner, i.e. having not run consistently for the past year. newbuttons

 

 

 

 

 

 

8 Week Program (begins June 4th & 5th)

The last HOORAH!  It’s crunch time and you know it.  You need that last push with a schedule to hold you accountable.  You’ve been running here and there and are comfortable running 4-5 miles non-stop.  Choose this training program to get ready to race a half marathon.  If a 10k race is more your speed this program is perfect to get your running fitness whipped into shape to have a great race experience and strive for a personal best effort.

As a RUN365 trainee you have global access to train with any group, anywhere and on any day.  For example, if you live in Mountain View but work in San Francisco the weekday evening group workouts closest to you after the workday will be in San Francisco and on the weekend you’ll have a long distance group run close by in the South Bay.  The same can be said with our East Bay groups and trail runs taking place in the Marin Headlands and East Bay hills.  You choose your own running adventure to best suit your life logistics.  If you’re fortunate enough to work and live in relatively the same area then you’ll easily be able to attend the same meetup locations or mix it up to explore other running areas.

  • San Francisco, Peninsula, East Bay, Pleasanton/Tri-Valley Area, and South Bay training locations
