Clinic starts 1st April

Only 5 spots left, so sign up soon to reserve your spot.

Our annual Running Clinic starts in 3 days, intended for runners to get ready for the Footstock 5K and 10K races. Clinic is set up to cater for beginners just off the couch to runners who want to improve their 10K time (sub 80 minutes or sub 40 minutes) – all clinic runs are split by ability into three different pace groups. Focus is on enjoying running and exploring paths and trails all over Cochrane – you are likely to see parts of Cochrane you have never visited before.
