Fleet Feet kicks off marathon training

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Fleet Feet is offering runners and people who want to get into running the chance to train for the Rock and roll Marathon and Half Marathon.

Participants gathered on Tuesday night to hear what is in store for the 20 week training course that begins next week.

The groups meet early in the morning twice a week to prepare for the race that will be held in November. Fleet Feet offers training for runners in Savannah and Pooler.

The training will cover a variety of different things.

"Different types of training," said Fleet Feet Sports Training Director Melissa Ramsey. "We will do speed work, some hill work, some temp stuff, but we will also do some nutrition aspects, we will do the different injury aspects. What to wear, what not to wear, anything and everything that goes involved with training and endurance, we will cover it for them."

If you haven't already signed up to join one of the training groups, there is still time. Sign-ups last through mid-July.
