Marathon Charity Cooperation (MCC) has decided to delay the start of the Summer Training Program (STP) due to the uncertainty of continued restrictions due to COVID-19. The new projected start date is Saturday, June 6th in Reston, VA. In early May, the STP Coaching Staff will begin sending weekly newsletters to provide advice and guidance for our runners who want to get started in May.

Runners are encouraged to send questions to coach@mc-coop.org so that the Coaching Staff can begin providing advice and training guidelines tailored to each runners need.

As we all struggle with the current social distancing guidelines, please know that the STP Coaches are available to provide assistance.
