Run a Faster 10K - 10 Week course

Sorry, this event has passed.

Course runs from Tuesday April 24th to Tuesday June 26th, 2018.  6pm to 7pm.

This gradual training program is designed to prepare participants who are currently comfortable running 5k to run 10km faster over the course of 10 weeks. Participants often begin at different levels of fitness and are encouraged to complete each training session to the best of their ability. The Run 10k program is progressive and fun.  Experience running at least 5km runs is recommended.

Join us for an engaging workout with our experienced run clinic leader, Steve Forst.  Weekly sessions will consist of a 15 min class covering training, fitness and technique, followed by a 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.

These clinics will be held in the east end in Riverdale Park East (off Broadview Ave between Danforth and Gerrard)
