The 4th Annual Cheyenne Marathon, featuring a marathon, half marathon, and 5k, will be held on September 18th at the Archer Recreation Complex just off I-80, Exit 370, in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The race will feature a brand new and scenic course.
The Cheyenne Running Club has partnered with Cheyenne Marathon and Gold's Gym to bring our running community an all new training experience. Things will kick off with a Cross Training Series "Strength to Race" with Gold's Gym Trainer Branko Oktavec, an OPEX CCP Coach, TRS mobility & movement specialist, StickMobility L1 coach, Crossfit L1 coach, and Ironman 70.3 World Championship 2022 qualifier. Learn why strength and conditioning is important, and how proper strength training will not only make you a better runner, but will also better support your body for injury prevention.
Next, we have prepared an 18 week Marathon and a 12 week Half Marathon training plan specially for the Cheyenne Marathon races. Both distances include beginner and Intermediate options. Throughout the training plan, Competitive Masters Marathoner and Road Runners Club of America Coach Erin Leaf, will be sharing weekly tips and training advice with our club members.
Finally, we will host weekly in person Bike Night cross training, Speed Work sessions, and Long Runs that align with the 12 week Half Marathon plan, giving you an opportunity to find motivation and encouragement through social running. We will also host occasional informational sessions following long runs. We hope you are ready for an enjoyable challenge as you prepare to realize your race goals.
All group activities are excellent for runners of all skill levels and paces. See below for more details, including the training plan, information on the many different activities throughout training, and then check out our event calendar for specifics on event locations and times.
