It’s Go Time!

Whether you are new to running or have been putting in the miles for years, a training plan provides the necessary structure to your training to ensure you reach your fitness goals. A well-developed training program varies the distances and types of runs performed throughout the training cycle to reduce the risk of injury and maximize performance.

Columbus Running Company certified running coach Eric Fruth has created training plans for the 10K, quarter marathon, half marathon, and marathon for beginners through advanced runners. Did we mention, that the plans are free of charge? If you’re looking for a specialized plan, email Coach Eric.
