Are You Ready for a Half Marathon?


Updated June 06, 2014

Are You Ready for a Half Marathon?

I've been hearing from a lot of runners who are planning to run a half marathon this year. Are you one of them? Or, maybe you've started thinking about taking on the 13.1-mile distance?  Many runners choose the half marathon distance because the training is not as time-consuming as a full marathon, but it's still a race distance that's challenging and comes with a lot of bragging rights.

Learn all about what it takes to train for and complete a half-marathon, including schedules, long distance running tips, and race day preparations.
