“If you’re reading this and wondering if MIT is for you... if you want to run, then ITS FOR YOU! Don’t hesitate! This group has changed my life and helped me accomplish my first marathon and PR my half. Their support and dedication kept me committed to running with them every Saturday, and the advice and stories they share are invaluable.” - Melissa

ARE YOU READY FOR TRAINING?
The marathon is a daunting challenge that should not be taken lightly. Like a building that requires a solid foundation to stand, so too does the marathon need a solid base of mileage and fitness before the training program commences to achieve the level of success you desire. It is MIT's goal that you have a successful training program and the best chance at attaining your goals and avoiding injuries.
