SUNDAY LONG RUNS
[Back to GENERAL INFORMATION]

The Melrose Running Club Sunday Long Run program runs through the Winter and Summer months, gearing members up for Spring and Fall Marathons and Half-Marathons. The 15 week training session will be aimed at training for the Boston Marathon and the BayState Marathon, but alternate distances are available to suit your training needs. Participants in the training run are encouraged to volunteer for water stop duties. Water stops are supplied by participants along the course, roughly every 3 or 4 miles. Water stops do not need to be attended, so you can run and supply the water stop. A nominal donation towards water stops is appreciated and can be in the form of money or supplies. Below you will find the scheduled 15 week training schedule and course maps will be linked in as they become available.
