Welcome to Bob Roncker's Running Spot

Train with us for the 2015 Flying Pig Marathon & Half Marathon

Train with us for the 2014 Flying Pig Marathon & Half Marathon...

Yes, we are again the Official Training Program of the 2014 Flying Pig Marathon and we are ready to roll into another fantastic year of training for the Pig. Whether you are a marathoner or half-marathoner, runner, or walker... we have the perfect program to fit your needs.

We will again be offering the following options: Marathon Running, Marathon Walking, Half Marathon Running and Half Marathon Walking. All of our programs will meet twice weekly and we'll provide a month-by-month training schedule for you to follow along the way. In addition, we'll make up each and every route for you and provide you with coaching, hydration and energy supplements during the workouts. Run-walkers are welcome as well and we will again be offering a "Sunday morning make-up session" for those unable to attend our Saturday sessions.


Here's a list of programs along with start dates and more details...
