Peninsula Runners is excited to offer a spring 2022 Learn-to-Run (001) & Run Easy (101) and a Run Stronger (201 group) starting January 19th and running to April 20th. This will be a great way to get ready for the Vancouver Sun Run 10 K on April 24th or to just improve your health and fitness while having fun in a safe group setting!
We strongly believe that outdoor exercise in a group setting is important for both our physical and mental health!! We are going to limit the number of participants total and divide into groups of 8 maximum per leader.
The groups will meet in front of our new Langley store at 6:00 pm every Wednesday night for 14 weeks from January 19 to April 20, 2022. Note that the run groups now meet at our new location just down the road at 20999 88th Avenue. Cost is $60 plus GST which includes a Pen Runners run shirt. Anyone with an interest in improving their fitness and learning more about the walking, jogging and running in a fun and social atmosphere is qualified to join. The goal for spring 2022 is to get outside and learn to run or get back into it again. Running is a very healthy activity for us and our goal is to help you become healthier and happier.
This spring we are offering three programs: Learn-to-Run (001), Run Easy (101) & Run Stronger (201) groups which will offer a safe and gradual introduction to improved your fitness in a safe and healthy environment. Each session features the ‘Walk-Jog-Run’ progression (or for the 201 a different workout each week) until you’re finally walking fast or running strong for 40 minutes+, 3-4 times per week... at a pace that will allow you to walk or run a 8 to 10k or more with comfort & confidence!! Group 001 is best or those who have never run before or not for a LONG time. Group 101 will transition quicker to jogging and running. While the 201 is for those already running 30 minutes at a time but wanting to become stronger and faster.
The Vancouver Sun Run is back this year on April 24th... this is a great goal to prepare for!!
Sign up soon before it is all full!!
