Tuesday Fitness Fix: Little Rock Marathon Training Program


Check here every Tuesday for a
fitness fix rundown. I’ll be on the lookout for running, cycling, tri’s,
adventure races, and other active outlets taking place around the state that I’ll
highlight each week. This week: Little Rock Marathon Training Program

Have you ever wanted to run a
marathon? If so, the Little Rock Marathon Training Program is officially up and
running for the 2011 race. Led by veteran coaches Hobbit and Tom Singleton,
the program provides safe outlined training to all who want to become
 “The training schedules are very do-able
and are for every level of fitness,” said Tom Singleton. “We had about 2,500
people in last year’s program, which was up about 48% from the previous season.
Our program caters to first time marathoners and first time runners/walkers
(meaning they have never run a step).”

The training is a free
running/walking program created to prepare individuals who plan to take part in
one of the races next March. (The marathon is on March 6).

Official training
groups are now being formed across the state. Individuals interested in leading
a training group outside of Central Arkansas are asked to contact the
Singletons at single5297@yahoo.com to get more information. Registration for
the training program is available online at
