Have you always wanted to learn to run but have no idea how to start training? Are you getting back into running and looking to join a weekly group of dedicated runners to help keep you motivated? This Learn to Run group is for you!
Did you know? Learn to Run is a fundraiser for the Osgoode Ward Youth Association (O-YA). As our instructors are volunteers, there are no associated program costs. So 100% of registration fees go directly to running O-YA and their amazing programs for local youth!
Learn to Run will be hosted by community volunteers (and seasoned runners) Dan Churchill, Mary Blaney, Tania O’Connor, Jess Cullen, and Maria Cyr. We will also have a couple familiar faces joining us some weeks. Hosts will share running tips from their own experience but our focus will be on warm up, stretches, strides - and of course running! The core program will teach you to run with a run / walk ratio that’s best for you.
All Learn to Run participants will have exclusive access to the Learn to Run Club Facebook Group. This 'members only' Group will be a space to share weekly program updates, encouragement, tips, and some fun! Having running partners helps keep you motivated, makes you less likely to skip workouts and makes the runs more fun.
Please note that Learn to Run is a rain/snow/sun activity. Please dress for the weather as we will be outside for approximately one hour each week regardless of weather. An exception to this rule is if there is significant accumulating snow, freezing rain or thunder/lightning. All class notifications will be posted to the Facebook group, so please join!
Participants often use the Learn to Run to get ready for the 'Goode Run, but anyone can join!
The ‘Goode Run registration will be up soon. Check https://www.o-ya.ca/goode-run.html for updates.
Don't forget to Like the 'Goode Run page on Facebook to stay informed on other fun items to come! https://www.facebook.com/TheGoodeRun
Before Learn to Run begins we suggest (if you are not already active) that you should get outside and walk at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes.
Looking forward to running with you!
There will be no refunds issued for Learn to Run registration, and registration is non-transferrable - please be sure before you commit!
