2018 Vancouver Sun Run InTraining Program


SportMedBC, in partnership with the Vancouver Sun and Sun Run Stores, is in its 23rd year of coordinating our 13-week, 10km-InTraining program for walkers & runners throughout the province of BC. Our goal is to provide motivation through a graduated program in which participants will safely and comfortably take part in the 2018 Vancouver Sun Run on Sunday April 22nd, 2018. The first session for all InTraining clinics will commence during the week of January 20th – 26th, 2018.

The InTraining program includes micro and macro-cycles to incorporate gradual, incremental training-load progressions and recovery sessions throughout the 13 weeks. This proven method of training is supported by industry professionals and leading sport medicine practitioners. The focus is to have clinic participants gradually increase their training over a 13-week period, in order to avoid injury and give the body time to adapt to the stress of running or walking. Participants meet once per week with their group, and will be expected to train on two additional days throughout the week.

Vancouver Sun Run InTraining offers five programs designed to suit the needs of all fitness levels: Walk10KNordicWalk10KLearnToRun10K, RunWalk10K (NEW!), and Run10KStronger
