What we do at the clinics

The 5-week program is adapted from the “Couch to 5k” program.  Participants select their own level ‘mostly walking’, ‘walking and running’ or ‘mostly running’. This way, you get to train with others that are at the same level as you. It will keep you motivated and your running will progress more than if you were trying to do it on your own. It also provides the ideal conditions to meet training buddies. Absolute beginners, who have never run 800m, join this group and are running 5 kilometres within 2 months. You can do it too. You can start training with us anytime regardless of your current level of fitness.

Clinics run for 5 weeks during school terms. We continue to run on the other Wednesdays of the school term and anyone wanting to do an easy 4-5km are welcome to join in.

You receive:

For your payment you receive:

  • one of the 15 spots available
  • four ½-hour group sessions on technique and drills
  • 5 weeks of the run/walk method
  • a Beginner Runners’ Booklet with comprehensive notes, running tips and advice to keep you motivated
  • a 10-week running program suited to your current level of fitness
  • a certificate when you finish your first 5km race.
