The Thirsty 13 Half Marathon is thrilled to have The Vault as our official gym partner for the race!
Why The Vault?
Simple. We want you to be well trained and injury-free when race day rolls around, and working out at The Vault is the best way to make that happen.
What Makes The Vault The Best Choice For Runners?

Running + The Vault = Success
As a runner myself, trust me on this. The best way to train for a half marathon is NOT just running. That is likely to lead to overuse injuries, especially if this is your first time attempting a half marathon.
Incorporating regular cross-training builds strength and endurance that not only help you prevent injury, but also will make you stronger and faster on your runs.
Our Training Recommendation
We want you running three times a week at most. And 2 - 3 times a week, we want you doing something other than running.
Would you believe you could train for a half marathon with as little as just one day of running a week, along with regular workouts at The Vault? I've seen lots of people do it, and they show up at the start line strong, fit, and ready to run.
