Train

The Pacific Northwest Marathon cares about your success. That is why we offer to help you with your marathon training. We have two options, one for local participants, and one for those who live far away.

- Since 2015 -

At the Pacific Northwest Marathon, anything is possible. We help people overcome the most difficult challenges in order to achieve their fitness goals.

Our Mission

The mission of the Pacific Northwest Marathon is to help people overcome challenges in order to achieve their fitness goals. There is a fitness crisis in our country. People are suffering more and more from chronic disease, poor nutrition, and inactivity. We invite you to join our supportive community, fight this downward cycle, work to live the life you have always wanted, and inspire others along the way. The Pacific Northwest Marathon will help you achieve new heights, overcome personal challenges, and be more healthy. This is your journey!

USATF Certified Boston Qualifer

Measured according to the highest industry standards. Laid out and marked by trained professionals. You can run your race feeling confident we have done our part to keep you on course and running the correct distance. Your time will count!

The Pacific Northwest Marathon is positioned just before the usual registration deadline for the Boston Marathon, making it possibly your last chance. Please see the BAA website for official registration dates for Boston.

Week 1 Get Moving

Congratulations! You’ve made a big decision to change your life. As you begin training, you will feel excited for the goal you have made. Your enthusiasm will be contagious as your friends see the changes you are making. At this early stage, it’s possible some of the workouts might seem easy. Even so, don’t overdo anything and put yourself out of the game. Remember, you have a ways to go, and the important thing now is to develop good habits.

Week 2 Build Core Muscle Endurance

Now you have been training consistently for several days. It takes 21 days to create a habit; you are about a third of the way there. Follow your training schedule as closely as possible. Don’t get distracted, and don’t get carried away. It is the small things, day after day, that make the biggest difference. Training too much could put you at risk for injury, and training too little will make it hard for you to finish your marathon.

Week 3 Keep Going; Be Consistent

By now, you have run a total of 39 miles. You will have had some good, some bad, and some in between days with running. This is normal. Follow the advice of your Yoga instructor: be aware of your bad days, but don’t judge yourself too harshly. If you have not already done so, start a training journal. Record the details of your training and how you feel before, during, and after working out. Take photos as well. This journal will help you keep track of your schedule. It will also help you beat discouragement and boredom when they come.
