USA FIT Georgetown is slated to launch Aug. 22 and is part of USA FIT, a national marathon training organization that has existed for over 30 years.

The goal-oriented training program caters to both new and experienced runners and walkers in a fun, friendly, non-intimidating environment, chapter founder George Creel said.



The program offers training schedules for the 3M Half Marathon and Austin Half Marathon with coach-led and coach-supported Saturday long runs. There are also educational seminars on important training; nutritional and racing information; informative newsletters; and social group events, such as after-training breakfasts, happy hours and more, Creel said.
