The #mondaycrew Training Group started in 2014 as a training group for those looking to qualify or run the Boston Marathon. Our name comes from the camaraderie we've experienced in the intense Speed Workouts that are held on Monday nights as a nod to ‘Marathon Monday’. What started as a small group of 8 people has grown into a program we hold three seasons a year and has trained over 150 people. We like to focus our #mondaycrew seasons as listed below, but are more than happy to work with any distance, time or race goal:

  • Winter/Spring - Marathon/Half Marathon/10 Mile Training (with emphasis on the Boston Marathon if you’re running).
  • Summer - 10K/5K/Speed Training to help prepare for a fast Fall race, emphasis on Hot Weather Training.
  • Fall - Marathon/Half Marathon/10K Training.


This is a coached, 14 week program designed to:

  • Help you physically and mentally prepare to run a personal best in a Spring Half or Full Marathon
  • Provide you with the training knowledge to become faster and stronger
  • Build community and camaraderie to all participants who are looking to push their Marathon and Half Marathon training to the next level

What to expect at Saturday Long Runs:

The Saturday Long run focus is on time on your feet. We use the long run to build up our endurance so that we can finish our distance races healthy and happy! Overall, these long runs should be at a very easy pace. We don’t want to race through the long runs because it will ultimately come to us feeling like we’ve ‘raced’ every weekend - our bodies will be tired and it increases the likelihood of injury. These long runs are fully supported with a Key Drop at the store, Water and Nuun (electrolyte drink) stops on the course, turn-by-turn directions, and access to your Coaches for questions, advice, jokes, etc. A sample route can be found here. Typically, we run loops from a central point so that we can have access to bathrooms/aid stations/coaches. This also allows our participants to train together, while doing different distances. For example the Half Marathoners may be running 8 miles while the Full Marathoners will do 12 miles - both groups will run 8 together, and then the Fullers will continue on for another 4 miles. We’re also able to accommodate different training distances this way, you still get the support of the group but can train for your goal race.

Participants must be able to maintain a training pace of 11:00 min/mile or less, run at least one half marathon before joining this program, and be comfortable running at least 6-8 (Half) or 8-10 (Full) miles on their own. Participants must be 18 or older. Please contact the Training Program Coordinator, Nora (nora@fleetfeetcarrboro.com) if you have any questions.
