Marathon & Half-marathon training.

Welcome to Slowrunners.com! We welcome all new runners, young and old, who are interested in becoming endurance athletes. We can help you train for your 1st or your 50th marathon or half-marathon.  We invite you to join us on training runs each Saturday, year round in the Phoenix area.

Meet in the parking lot of the Arcadia Plaza Shopping Center (northwest corner of Indian School Rd. and 48th St) @ 6:30 AM for the Viv birthday 7 mile loop.

Here are the Run Directions. (Just realized this map does not reflect how we currently do this run. We are planning on running as a group this week, I will correct the map and directions in the future.)

Meet in the parking lot @ Vista Canyon Park for a 6:30 AM run. There will be a choice of two loops, a 5.2 mile, or the 8.5 mile. Joe would like to run earlier, contact him if you’d like to join him @ 5:30. Here are the run directions.

Light rail fares are now $2.00 for a one way ride. The train leaves the station @ 5:38 AM; make sure you allow time to purchase your ticket. Plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat are recommended as the big yellow thing is rising earlier now. There will be a car at approximately 9 miles for those not wanting to do the entire run. After running by the zoo we may continue on the Crosscut canal path to Mill and return via Mill, 5th St, Veterans Way and Terrace, following the light rail track to Apache instead of running to Rural.
