  • Hardee's Parking Lot

    We will meet next to the Hardees parking lot on Morganton and McPherson Church Road., Fayetteville, NC (map)

    35.054966 -78.944260

  • We park in the parking lot near Hardee's on Morganton Road and McPherson Church Road. At 5:30 we jump out of our cars, take a photo, and begin running.
  • We meet to conduct long training runs for marathons and half marathons.   Most of us use Hal Higdon's or Jeff Galloway's training plans based upon Hal Higdon's training philosophy. Our goal is to run for fun, fitness, and friendship. 

    We have runners training for marathons and half-marathons. Consequently, everyone is not on the same training schedule, which means we have many runners running different distances and different paces along the same course. Some runners run as few as 4 miles while while others run as many as 20.  We have experienced runners, fairly new runners and everything in between.

    We have hydration points on our course and normally post Hal Higdon's weekly "long-run" mileage for upcoming marathons.  We have 4, 6, 8 and 10 mile hydration supported routes for anyone not actively training for a race.

    Below are the distances for this Saturday's run:

    This is week 11 for our Boston marathoners, week 13 for our All American marathoners and week 17 for our Myrtle Beach marathoners.

    Boston Marathon is April 18, this is training week 11: Boston marathoners run 16 - 18 miles.

    All American is April 3, this is training week 13: Novice 1 - 18 miles; Novice 2 - 19 miles; Intermediate 1 - 20 miles ; Intermediate 2 - 20 miles.  

    Myrtle Beach is March 5, this is training week 17: Each runner runs 8 miles... just one week to go!
