There is a group of runners trying to get a Team In Training Team started here in Erie. If you’re not familiar with TNT they are an endurance training program that coaches people of all abilities to do endurance events and during that process the participants raise money for cancer research for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

They’ve scheduled an informational meeting on Dec 15th at Achilles Running Shop in Erie. Here are all the details:
Ever dreamed of running a marathon or a half marathon but not sure where to start?  Is someone in your life impacted by cancer and you wish you could do something, but not sure how to help?  The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Erie branch of Team in Training for marathoning has some answers for you!
Join our team and we’ll train you every step of the way to completing a marathon or half marathon while fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  One of the races we’re training for is the Pittsburgh Marathon and Half Marathon in May. Our experienced coaching staff will provide you with a detailed training schedule, twice weekly group runs and training sessions, fundraising assistance, advice on proper clothing, shoes, nutrition, hydration, injury prevention and cross training.  We’ll be at your side every step of the way to offer to answer questions and share advice.  We welcome all abilities and ages!
We’ll be having an informational meeting on Saturday, December 15th at 10 am at Achilles Running Shop located at 2309 West 12th St.  We kick off the meeting with a short run followed by the information session.  For questions or if you are interested, but can’t attend please call 412-395-2879 or email or visit
