Sun Run InTraining Leaders Wanted!

Sun Run InTraining Leaders Wanted!

SportMedBC, in partnership with The Vancouver Sun, is in its 21st year of coordinating 13-week Sun Run InTraining clinics for walkers and runners at more than 60 recreation and fitness centres throughout the Greater Vancouver area and BC Interior. SportMedBC’s goal is to provide motivation through a graduated program in which participants will safely and comfortably take part in the 2016 Vancouver Sun Run on April 17, 2016. 

We are seeking active, enthusiastic individuals who have a passion for running and/or walking for our 2016 Sun Run InTraining Program that begins Saturday, January 16, 2016. Volunteer leaders share an interest in physical activity and understand the challenges of starting a new exercise program. Leaders should be fit and have the energy to motivate others to follow their InTraining program schedule.

Under the guidance of a Clinic Coordinator, Sun Run InTraining Leaders work as part of a team that guides novice runners and walkers on their journey to the completion of the Vancouver Sun Run. As a volunteer leader, you must attend the SportMedBC Leader training session on January 9th, 2016 in Vancouver or January 10th, 2016 in Kelowna. 

We are recruiting leaders for our four InTraining Programs – Walk10K, LearnToRun10K, Run10KStronger, and NordicWalk10K.

Dates: January 2016 - May 2016

Compensation: An entry to The Vancouver Sun Run on April 17 2016, a long sleeve technical training shirt and education (including CPR training).
