The marathon group has running all the way from 7:00 to 14:00 minutes miles per mile. Many of our runners were former runners, and some have had other running experience. The group also gets a good number of new runners each year. Some pace groups will walk/run, especially when the distances get long, to help keep you going for the entire marathon. We love to talk and have fun while running. Depending on how you are progressing and feeling, you can move between pace groups. Find your coaches below:

I joined San Jose fit in 2018 with a goal to complete a marathon and I did complete my first marathon in the same year with the help of structured training and encouragement I got from San Jose Fit. Running has become my lifestyle and it helps me stay healthy and Fit. I have completed many races and trail runs after Joining San Jose Fit.
Structured training plan, In-person training, encouragement, precious tips and company I got from the experienced coaches and fellow runners is amazing and trust me I don't think you can get this from an “online search engine results”.
I have got so many friends through San Jose Fit and now I never have to worry about running alone, I always find somebody interested to run the same race/trail with me, making my runs memorable. Running long distances helps me find my inner peace and boost my confidence. Find out what running can offer you by training and running a race with the San Jose Fit family.
I joined SJFit in 1998. I showed up at LGHS by myself not knowing what to expect. That October, I became a marathoner. And, the journey was just as rewarding as the event.
In 2008 SJFit expanded to include the half marathon program. It’s an excellent fitness program and our target race is San Jose Rock n Roll.
The best part about SJFit is the mix of new runners with veteran runners. We support and encourage each other.
So lace up your shoes and join us. Everyone is welcome.
The half marathon……..
half the distance, twice the fun!
