Welcome to UNLEASHED!
Our program works for novice runners, weekend warriors, and seasoned athletes. We have a lot of fun while we support the animals of Talbot Humane and build a community of lifelong runners- and friends.
UNLEASHED is a physical conditioning program geared at both beginners and experienced runners. More than 100,000 marathoners have used the training method that Unleashed is based on, with 98% success! The training combines running with regular walk breaks to help you build endurance. You will start out with a slow 3-mile run and gradually increase your distance each Saturday during group runs. Each week you will see your progress and really appreciate how far you’ve come! Generally, new runners start out with half marathon training. Returning runners often opt to train for a full marathon!
What’s it Like?
Mostly, it’s FUN! We meet at Idlewild Park in Easton every Saturday morning to run with our pace groups, people who run at the same pace as you! We have course maps set out, water stops and trail support, and a team of runners cheering us on. During the week, we complete two shorter maintenance runs on our own. Saturday runs increase by one or two miles each week. Then, we travel as a team on race day to a nearby half or full marathon. You’ll be amazed at how training with a group keeps you motivated to run a little farther and push a little harder than you EVER thought possible!
