Building on the popularity of last September’s beginner run clinic, the River Runners Running club and the City of Campbell River’s Recreation and Culture Department will once again offer a beginner run clinic to train participants to run the Miracle Beach 5K or 10K event in October.
Last year’s clinic hosted twice the expected number of participants, with 40 people signing up. A participant in the 2012 clinic said: “I reluctantly took your Learn to Run clinic last fall at the insistence of a friend. I ached in my joints and the idea of running overwhelmed me. However, the instructors and other participants were so positive and encouraging. In the past year, I ran the Miracle Beach 5K the TC 10K and the Victoria Goddess 10K.”
Interested? Mark your calendars to be at the Sportsplex from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Saturdays, from Sept. 7 until Oct. 12.
Each week the participants will head out in groups based on running speed and ability, and the clinic includes informative talks and presentations on clothing, stretching and nutrition. There is always plenty of good conversation and great support.
Participants should be able to run for 20 minutes continuously before registering for this clinic.
The cost is $20, and registration starts on August 23.
You can register in person at the Sportsplex or Community Centre or by phoning 250-923-7911.
