10K To Half Marathon Program

 

SportMedBC’s 10K to Half Marathon Program will help RunWalk graduates to safely complete the 21K distance. Created by Lynn Kanuka, resident Olympian, under the guidance of Olympian Natasha Wodak and with the support of our experienced team of long-distance dedicated run leaders.

SportMedBC is providing a gradual training program that begins following the completion of the 13week RunWalk program. This 9-week training program will allow for a seamless transition to walk/run the 21km distance.

Our 10K to Half Marathon training clinics offer two intensity levels both with the intention of setting up the participants to complete the a Half Marathon.

Run Easy is suitable for those runners who have completed SportMedBC’s Run10K training and/or are comfortable with a 40mins run/walk with “10 and 1s” intervals (10mins running alternated with 1min walking) three times per week, and ideally have completed at least one 10K event.

Run Stronger is suitable for runners who have completed SportMedBC’s Run10KStronger program, or are comfortably running 40mins three times per week, and ideally have completed at least one 10K event.

Participants should only consider these clinics if they have been walk/running safely and comfortably, with no injury problems for 3 months leading up to the clinic start date.
