Once the Fit season has kicked off, we’ll accept new members on a case-by-case basis. Please call In Motion at 760.692.2900 or send an email to inquire.
In Motion Fit does not have a drop-in program. Our all-inclusive membership covers our coaching, training runs/walks and more.
The In Motion Fit training program is made up of three seasons geared toward running the Half Marathon Triple Crown events. Our winter season training is focused on running the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon and running or walking the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Half Marathon, our spring season is geared toward running the La Jolla Half Marathon and our summer season training is focused on running the America’s Finest City Half Marathon. Participants are able to sign up for one season at a time or for all three seasons at once. Though all three seasons focus on a specific event, we welcome members who are looking for a steady running group or an opportunity to get in shape. Membership details and prices can be found here.
The In Motion Fit training programs will meet for a group run on Saturdays in various locations. The In Motion Fit home page will list the weekly run locations.
Walkers are welcome to train for the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Half Marathon. Be sure to review the time limits before registering for the event.
In Motion Fit is not associated with a charity and you do not need to raise money to participate in this program. There are several good marathon training programs where raising money for a charity is part of the program. While these can be effective and rewarding, we realize that it’s not for everyone and may not be feasible to do year after year. Some of our members choose to raise money for a charity, but it isn’t a requirement.

No, your In Motion Fit registration fee only covers the cost of your participation in the training program. As a Fit member you will be able to register for the associated events at the “early bird” rates, but you will need to register and pay separately for any races you wish to participate in.
The orientation includes a program introduction and group run. The orientation will take approximately an hour and a half.
Yes, you should still sign up! Our coaches can get you up to speed when you are able to attend.
Sure! In fact, we encourage you to experience a race situation prior to participating in the race you’ll be training for.
Realizing that most people lead very busy lives, this program is one that can easily fit into your schedule. For the most part, the program calls for running or walking only 4 days a week. Your long run or walk will usually take place on Saturday. During the week, you run or walk for time only (i.e., 30 minutes) and for distance on Saturday.
During the week, we run for minutes. If the schedule says “30” on a Tuesday, you should run or walk 30 minutes. Do this at a comfortable pace unless instructed to do otherwise. On the weekends, we do miles, so the schedule will be in miles. Listen to your coaches on how to run these miles each week.
No, many members are unable to make every Saturday session. However, those long runs are a lot easier when you’re doing them with the group! And in our experience, the success of our members is directly proportional to their ability to attend the Saturday training runs. When you do have to miss a Saturday meeting, check this website for the next Saturday meeting time.
