Spring 2024 running groups
When does the next one start??
The first session starts on Wednesday January 17, 2024 at 6:00 p.m. We are excited for the new year of improving health and warming days as the spring arrives. We also know how valuable running is to our health, both mental and physical health. The goal is to help you get into running or for some of you to make you a stronger runner. At the end we will have a 5 K run to test ourselves. We would also encourage you all to sign up for the Vancouver Sun Run on April 21, 2024!! More information here!
Anyone with an interest in improving their fitness, and learning more about the sport of running, is qualified to join. We offer two distinct programs; one for those just starting out (two pace groups aka Running 001 and 101) and Running 201 for those still new to running who want to continue to improve their speed and strength. The walk/jog program offers a safe and gradual introduction to running. The running program incorporates more technical aspects of running and challenges runners with anaerobic workouts such as fartlek, track intervals, hills and tempo runs. Within the running program, workouts are modified to meet everyone’s ability. You can move up or down a group if things are too easy or not challenging enough.
There are many reasons for starting an exercise program. Some want to relieve stress or lose weight, and others just want to enjoy the outdoors. Our program design is specifically developed to assist individuals gain strength and running speed. At Peninsula Runners we work hard to provide a safe, informative, fun, motivating, and rewarding clinic atmosphere.
This “walk to run” and “run stronger” clinic program is 14 weeks long starting January 17 and ending April 17, 2024. The 001 group will prepare you to run/walk a 5 k by the end of the 14 weeks while the 101 will prepare you to run the either a 5 k a little stronger or finish a 10K. The 201 will help you become a stronger runner for the 5 K or 10 K.
