Marathon / Half Marathon Training FAQs
How much does the training session cost?
At RunnersWorld Tulsa, up until now our training sessions have been 100% free - a service we've offered to the running community because we love the sport and hope you grow to love it as well. Due to the success of our programs and the increased number of runners, we found it necessary to charge a $25 registration fee to cover the costs of processing paperwork, snacks, and Gatorade. Also included in your registration fee is a RunnersWorld tech fabric training shirt (a $30 value).
How can I sign up?
Come into the store and register.
When does the new session start?
The first official day of training will be June 29, 2013.
What if I miss the first day, can I still join the group?
You can join the group at any time, just stop by the store and register.
How many days a week do we run as a group?
We run together three days a week:
- Mondays at 5:30PM at RunnersWorld Tulsa.
- Thursdays at 5:30PM at RunnersWorld Tulsa.
- Saturday mornings. Times and places are subject to change (check emails we send)
Do I have to attend all three days to train with the group?
We understand that we all live busy lives. You may attend as many or as few days as you want to or can. Upon registration, you will be given your complete training schedule and so you will be fully informed as to how many days a week you should run and what distances.
What event is this session training to do?
The primary focus for this session is the Route 66 marathon or half. You are not limited to or required to run Route 66. If you have another race that you choose to run, let us know and we will help you with a training schedule that will suit your needs.
Do I have to train for a specific race to run with the group?
Our training runs are open to anyone that wants to run or walk with a group. You do not have to train for anything at all to run with our group but you do have to fill out a registration form and pay the processing fee.
Do you have pace groups?
Yes we do. All of our groups are broken down into specific paces.
How do I know which group I am in?
After you fill out your registration form, we take the information and match you up with a run leader that runs your approximate pace. Your run leader will send you an e-mail to let you know the name of the group you are in.
Do I have to run with the group I am assigned?
Our groups are flexible. You can run with anyone that you want to. Each group will be running a specific range of pace and if you want to change based on your ability, you can. Nobody knows your body and ability more than you do. We are there to give you advice and guidance, but we want you to learn to run according to your own abilities.
Will I be educated on different aspects of my training?
We will give you as much guidance and advice as possible. We will send out weekly e-mails with training tips and information on lots of different subjects such as...nutrition, stretching, strength training, etc.
Will there be route maps and route directions?
Tuesdays and Thursdays, we pretty much cover the same ground and since these are shorter runs, you will be able to figure out the routes with relative ease. Saturdays, we tend to vary the routes and the run leaders will send you the course map and turn by turn directions for you to print out and bring to run that morning.
Do you provide water/Gatorade for the training runs?
We will provide water for the Monday and Thursday runs. Saturdays we usually have water and Gatorade at the start/finish area and on the course. We have snacks at the start/finish area for the Saturday runs. RunnersWorld Tulsa is very concerned about our environment and for the first time we are going GREEN for our Saturday runs. We noticed that with the hundreds of people running with us and providing multiple water stops on the route we were creating tons of trash from all the water cups. This session we will require you to carry a water bottle with you to fill up and drink out of at the water stops.
