Fox River Trail Runners will provides training for beginners to advanced runners. Our training is led by Road Runner Club of America certified coaches and group runs will take place in various locales in the Fox Valley region.  We currently offer two programs:

  • Spring Half Marathon Training.  While the target race for most is our Great Western Half Marathon our flexible plans can be used for any spring half you may be running.
  • Fall Endurance Training which is for any fall marathon or half marathon.  As with the Spring program our plans are flexible and typically we have people training for 8-10 different races
