Have you ever met a “Half Marathon” finisher and thought, “Wow, I’d like to be that person!” Have you ever wanted the same incredible sense of accomplishment that they have? This MEC running clinic will help you aim for this very goal.

If running a half is easy, why don’t more people do it? Because it’s not easy. It takes discipline and determination to even show up at a clinic never mind get out for a run!   Are you a determined person? Would YOU like to be known as a “Half Marathoner”? Someone capable of running 21.1 kilometers in one go? If so, sign up.

Pre-requisite: Experience running 10k or more OR doing 5k or 10k races over past six months.  Speed is not a factor. 

·      We’ll help you build your endurance gradually and safely over 12 weeks

·      We’ll teach you about all things running but more importantly we’ll help you discover that you are capable of amazing things

·      Weekly sessions: a 20-min instructional class covering a number of topics about training, fitness and technique, followed by a 30-min group run

·      At your first session we’ll give you a training schedule

INSTRUCTOR: Jeff Cooper, experienced run clinic leader, marathoner and ultramarathoner. Jeff says, "In order to be successful at whatever you do, first you need to find your passion, followed by making the commitment to succeed, then you strive to overcome the challenges, and finally you get to savour the joy of accomplishing your goals."
