Training

Runners Edge KC
The Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon with Ivy Funds is just around the corner!  As we all know, proper training can go a long way in reaching your goals.  To assist you in your planning, we turn to our local running guru, Coach Eladio Valdez III from the Runner’s Edge. Whether you are a rookie to long distance running or a seasoned veteran, we have a schedule that will help you cross the finish line in October!

An easier and more enjoyable way to train is with others.  If you would like to learn more about these opportunities, Coach Valdez invites you to enjoy a complimentary group run anytime.  With pace groups that range from 8 to 12 minutes a mile, all levels are welcome.  Simply contact him at www.runnersedgekc.com.

  • Half Marathon – Beginner Level  - If you are starting from scratch or coming back after a long layoff, this schedule is for you.  It answers the question: What is the least amount of training you can do and still be prepared to complete the half marathon?
  • Half Marathon – Level I Schedule - If you have been running up to 15 miles a week and your main goal is to finish the half marathon.  You’ll have enough miles under your belt and enough strength from doing hill workouts to be prepared to go after a loose time goal.
  • Half Marathon – Level II Schedule - If you have been running at least 15 miles a week and your main goal is to finish the half within a certain time.  It incorporates hills, speed, and goal pace workouts to be prepared to go after a loose time goal as well.
  • Marathon – Level I Schedule - If you have been running at least 10 miles a week and your main goal is to finish the marathon.  You’ll have enough miles under your belt and strength from doing hill workouts to be prepared to go after a loose time goal.
  • Marathon – Level II Schedule - If you have been running at least 20 miles a week and your main goal is to finish the marathon within a certain time. It incorporates hills, speed, and goal pace workouts to get you ready to handle the pace for 26.2 miles.
