Mercy Health Seaway Run Training Plans

Our Race Director will develop a new training calendar for the 2019 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.)

Watch for the release of our training calendar coming in the spring of 2019.  We also will be having group training runs throughout the spring to help you achieve your goals – watch our Facebook page for details!
