Learn to Run a 5K (Trail) with MEC Barrie!

Location: Township of Springwater Administration Centre - Tree Nursery Park (2231 Nursery Road, Minesing)



MEC is excited to host an 8-week trail running clinic at the site of one of our favourite races of the year, Tree Nursery Sports Park, in the Township of Springwater. This gradual training program is designed to prepare participants to run 5km on trail over the course of 8 weeks. Participants often begin at different levels of fitness and are encouraged to complete each training session to the best of their ability. It is progressive and fun, and the amount of running varies.



No running experience is required. Weekly sessions will consist of a short class covering topics such as form, nutrition, injury prevention, GPS/Heart Rate, Making a Training plan, Cross Training, and more, followed by a 25-45 min group run session. A training plan will be provided to you at the first session outlining the entire clinic.  Weekly emails will keep you in touch with your coach and on-top of the training plan.

This clinic would prepare you to participate in MEC Barrie Race Two.

Please remember to dress for the weather and to bring a headlight!
