Program Overview

Why Run?
Runners’ Resources

Asha Austin’s training program provides the necessary coaching and support system for both the experienced and beginner runner. When we began the marathon program in 2005, most of our runners were first-time marathon runners. All the runners who have completed our training have been successful in running the marathons or half-marathons or 10ks of their choice. Some have taken a step forward and even participated in ultra-marathons!

The training period typically lasts for over a period of six months for a marathon or half-marathon and three months for a 10K, and includes many aspects:

  • Comprehensive guidance from professional coaches
  • Schedules and support for weekend runs and weekday workouts
  • Strength training and core workouts
  • Nutrition Clinics
  • One-on-one guidance from mentors on running and fundraising goals
  • Shoe fit guidance and discounts
