The Half Marathon Training Program is administered by Mike Rush, owner of Rush Running Company, Bentonville, AR.
We’re taking a new approach for the Bentonville Half Marathon Training Program this year! You can still expect all the great swag, information, and support, just on a smaller scale. We will be offering a combination of virtual meetings and small group runs throughout the week. When you register, you will be asked to provide your estimated finish time. You will then be placed into a small group of 10 runners + 1 volunteer coach. This will be your group for the duration of the program. You will work with your coach and group to find the best time and location for you to meet each week for your long run.
Program fee: $225 (includes entry into the 2021 Bentonville Half Marathon)
Training Program will begin in December 5 2020!
"Training Program was awesome. I feel like a "runner" now. It's a way of life for me. Very inspiring. Challenging. Great for mind/body/soul. I feel so refreshed after our runs. Loved running as a group on Saturdays. Loved meeting new people!"
"I went from a 5k twice a year to this 1/2 marathon. Dream come true. I fully expected to finish under 2 hours. Couldn't have done it without the training group! Many thank you all the volunteers who made it happen!!"
