I was not able to join the Vancouver Marathon Race because of my schedule. I plan to join for the next year and manage my time well for the event. I need to have training program for half marathon as well so that I can finish the race with no injury and body pain. I just want to know how much time or days to allocate for a training program.

Good luck Roger, if you set a goal and start well enough in advance I'm sure you can complete the Vancouver Marathon!

The amount of time you spend training each week depends a lot on your current conditioning and what kind of training load your body can handle, which can vary a lot from person to person. What's your current fitness and training level?

The most important thing when training is to ramp up training load slowly, and listen to your body. It will tell you when you're doing too much, too soon.

Roger,

Check out Hal Higdon for a wide variety of marathon training plans for various experience levels. He's also got plans for other distances as well.

The Vancouver Marathon course is pretty great. Have fun running it!
