  • 2015 Monumental Marathon Training Program

    Are you ready to start thinking about a fall marathon or half-marathon? The Indianapolis Monumental Marathon is becoming a tradition for our club as a destination race. Whether you choose the marathon or half-marathon, Indianapolis is a great place to race. Our summer long runs will again target the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, which this year is on November 7. Our long runs, combined with our Tuesday night fun runs and Wednesday night track workouts, are a great way to get ready for the fall race of your choice. However, I hope that you will consider joining us in Indianapolis on November 7. More race information can be found at www.monumentalmarathon.com and training program details are here 2015 SWRC Monumental Marathon Training Program.pdf.
