Are you a couch potato?  Do you need inspiration to move your body? Ever wondered about completing a 5k race?  Think you could handle a weekly clinic session?  Then join us…

·      Learn to run gradually and safely over 10 weeks

·      Participants can be brand new at running or be weekend warriors… all are encouraged to participate to the best of their ability.

INSTRUCTOR: experienced run clinic leader and marathoner,

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

·      We’ll coach you to do the ‘Run-Walk’ method, meaning ‘jog for a minute, walk for a minute’ and build from there to do more

·      At your first session we’ll give you a training schedule.  If you want to improve your 5k time, this clinic will help you too.
