Fall/Winter 2012

marathon finish line

Begins Saturday October 20th 7:00am and includes Mondays and Wednesdays 6:30pm guided workouts


To rebuild or continue your running fitness after a fall marathon in preparation for the "NEW" 2013 Vancouver Marathon program beginning January 12, 2013. The emphasis of this program will be on improving your speed and strength while rebuilding your endurance levels. Workouts will include a focus on legs, core, and upper body strength while rebuilding your endurance levels. This will be like body-conditioning ans sculpting for runners. Our 2013 Spring Marathon Clinic is part of an on-going long-term running developmental program cycle to help you to continuously improve over time. It follows a similar format to our Maintenance Clinic and further increases your speed and strength for better and injury-free long distance running and racing.

Program includes:

Distance runs will begin with 4, 8 and 10-miles for all beginner and recovering half or full marathoners and peak at 11-17 miles over the 12 week program in order to be in super-shape for the 2013 Spring Marathon Training Program beginning January 12. Workouts will include endurance development, interval training from 100-meters to 1-mile repeats, tempo runs, hill training, and our very own Brazil, Stations, G.I. Workouts and more. Our long-term developmental training philosophy is now being adopted universally to ensure you get stronger, fitter and faster over time and remain injury free.


The cost is $45 for 12 weeks which includes a schedule of all of the workouts, Russ' World-Famous Weekly Newsletter, incredible store discounts and more. Phone (604) 531-7879 or drop by Peninsula Runners for more information.

Coached by Russ, Lorne and our bevy of awe-inspiring group leaders to help you have your greatest running experience ever!

We offer 3 programs depending upon your goals, time and ability.

Running 101 — Critical Program

An athlete whose desire is to complete the half-marathon or marathon distance either for the first time and/or to enjoy the experience. Half-Marathon registrants should be comfortable running continuously 5-6 miles and Full-Marathoners, 9 miles plus. They should also be comfortable running a variety of distances at least 3 times per week. For this individual, education, fun and participation is of greater importance than a specific finishing time.

Running 201-301 — Veteran Program

This athlete has completed the Half-Marathon or Marathon distance within the last two years and has a sufficient running base to adapt to greater endurance training and may be seeking a personal best finishing time. You will be required to run 4-6 days per week depending upon your running history and schedule.

Running 204 — Athletic

A more advanced training program provided for motivated and performance-oriented individuals running 5 years plus and have completed several marathons or recent PENINSULA RUNNERS clinics and are seeking a personal best for a spring event such as the 2013 Vancouver Half and Full Marathon. You will be required to run 6-7 days per week. Ask for details.
