Have you always wanted to run a 5K race, but have no idea when, where or how to start training? Have you been running a bit but need help with technique? Or, are you looking to join a weekly group of dedicated runners to help keep you motivated? The Learn to Run a 5K Series is for you!
Learn To Run will be hosted by community volunteers (and seasoned runners) Linda Panich Langlois, Mary Blaney and Clair Hinther. Hosts will each share running tips from their own experience, but our focus will be on warm up, stretches, strides and actually running!
All participants of the Learn to Run program will have exclusive access to the Learn to Run Facebook Group. This 'members only' Group will be a space to share weekly program updates, encouragement, tips and some fun!
Special Guest Session! On March 18 (rescheduled - new date TBA), The Learn To Run program will include an instructional session with ultramarathoners Steve Mahood and Una Beaudry. Steve and Una have completed many endurance events, including an 11 day, 500k ultra run in Italy, from Cinque Terre to Rome finishing with the Rome marathon.
Steve and Una operate Run Daily Coaching, offering road and trail coaching from 5k and beyond!
Details are on FB https://www.facebook.com/RunDaily/ At Steve & Una's Learn to Run session, they will introduce simple changes which can reduce the amount of effort, as well as, the potential for injury due to impact. Runners will learn to run effortlessly. Steve and Una volunteered their time to the O-YA Learn to Run group last year and it was a great success! Participants came away with some new techniques while having lots of fun!
Learn To Run participants will also SAVE 20% on 'Goode Run registrations! A Promo Code will be sent to participants.
