The NY Flyers’ MTP is accessible to runners of all levels, whether you’re training for fitness, to stay connected to the club socially, or a half or full marathon goal this season. Please Note: We do require at least a half marathon finish prior to training for your first marathon. 

Practices

Members gather between 6:30-6:40 pm inside the park near Maine Monument in Columbus Circle. All runners receive a practice email on Sunday evenings, including where we will perform the workout in case you're running late on Wednesday. Bag check is available (free) across the street on the second floor of the Time Warner Center at the Fleet Feet running store.

All athletes train with their assigned group (broken down by fitness level) but at individualized paces prescribed on their training calendar. Practices typically finish (around 7:45 pm) with some strength and mobility exercises. 

Training Plan

All participants receive 18 weeks of training, designed by our coaches and customized based on your training background and goals. Plans are also published to your training calendar based on the number of training days and which days you select. 

All workouts are published to each participant’s V.O2 calendar, which includes the ability to manage your training on the mobile app, website and/or a PDF copy. V.O2 also syncs with popular GPS trackers (Apple, Coros, Garmin, Strava, Fitbit, etc.) so you can easily manage your prescribed workouts and actual splits.
