5KM CLINIC

This beginner-friendly gradual training program is designed to prepare participants to run 5km 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. This running clinic is based on a run/walk progression, allowing you to run for 30 minutes at the end of the clinic. It is progressive and fun, and the amount of running done each week increases slightly to help ensure you achieve your goals.

 

No past running experience is required. Weekly sessions will consist of a 15 min session covering training, fitness and technique, followed by a 30 - 40min 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 gradual training program is designed to prepare participants who are comfortable running 5k to run 10km 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 Learn to Run 10k program is based on a run/walk progression, allowing you to run for 10+km at the end of the clinic. It is progressive and fun, and the amount of running varies, with the introduction of strength/hill training and speed training, to help you achieve your goals.

 

Experience running at least 5km is recommended. Weekly sessions will consist of a 15 min session covering training, fitness and technique, followed by a 30 - 60min 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.
