Mercy Health Seaway Run Training Plans

Our new Race Director will develop a training calendar for the 2018 Mercy Health Seaway Run. This at home training plan combines information that has been proven to be successful from the Hal Higdon’s Marathon page and training programs (more information on Hal Higdon can be found here.)

Click here to view and print the training calendar (all three distances are included on one calendar.)  We also will be having group training runs throughout the spring to help you achieve your goals – watch our Facebook page for details!
