10K to Half Marathon Program

SportMedBC in Partnership with Canadian Running Series & Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon is introducting a 9-Week 10K to Half Marathon Program starting the week of April 25th!

SportMedBC’s 10K to Half Marathon Clinics will take InTraining graduates to the next level, and all the way to the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon. Created by Lynn Kanuka, SportMedBC’s RunWalk Coach and resident Olympian, and with the support of our experienced team of run leaders, SportMedBC is providing a gradual training program that starts right after the Sun Run. 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:

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.

Start Date: Week of Saturday April 25th

End Date: Week of Saturday June 20th

Scotiabank Half Marathon: Sunday June 28th, 2020

Early Bird Price (Feb 28-Mar 31): $89 (+GST)
