2014 Orange County Start Training
Train to Walk or Run a Half Marathon


What is Start Training?

Train to walk or run a half marathon with Start Training! No experience is necessary; we have coaches who will help you every step of the way. Make a difference in your own life while raising funds for the millions of Americans of all ages whose lives are instantly and profoundly changed by heart disease and stroke.

We will train for the OC Half Marathon on May 4th, 2014.

There is a $500 fundraising minimum – less than any other training program. You will also earn great fundraising prizes for every fundraising benchmark you meet! You will be provided your own personal fundraising page along with a staff partner to support your fundraising efforts.


Registration is $100 – much cheaper than a gym membership!
*Please note: registration for the half marathon event is not included.
