THE TRAINING

A trail running clinic to get you ready for the May 23rd, 2015 Loop the Lakes race day presented by RUN SQUAMISH. We live with a network of amazing trails in our backyard, why not run them, train on them and make trail running something that you can enjoy for the rest of your life. Taught by a world class trail runner and coach, you can guarantee that Jen will be sharing with you everything she knows about running through the woods while at the same time, teaching you how to move efficiently, tackle hills, run the trails with correct form and technique, breathe and be ready for race day with a game plan and strategy in place. The training will be focused towards the Loop the Lake course (all distances) but you will walk away with an increase in fitness, new knowledge and the confidence to keep running off-road!

Participation in this 6 week program also includes your RACE ENTRY to Loop the Lakes 2015!

– A 6 week training program (weekly workouts leading to race day. Choose from either an 8km, 15km or 21km plan)
– A Weekday Short Run:
Tuesday’s On Trail:
Beginner Runners @ 6pm
Intermediate Runners @ 7:15pm
**Meeting at a different trail head each week

Assisting Jen with the coaching will be physiotherapist Silas Wiefelspuett.  With a sports medicine and musculoskeletal system injuries focus, participants in this clinic can benefit from the knowledge that he will be sharing. Silas is able to provide instruction relevant to the beginner runner and elite athlete based on both his personal running background and his professional training. Through a combination of gait biomechanic assessment, combined with an in-depth understanding of the muscular system and movement patterns, Silas will help you to help you enjoy and maximize your running experience to the fullest.

Hills are meant to be climbed!  In this 10 week series we will make you a stronger, more powerful and more efficient uphill runner then you’ve ever been before.  You will no longer have to fear hills. We will teach you how to embrace the vertical as you take your running to a new level.

This clinic has been designed specifically to prepare runners of all levels for a new racing coming to Squamish this Summer (details being released soon!!!!!)  A bulk of this training clinic will be carried out on the Sea to Sky gondola trails.  We have partnered with the Sea to Sky Gondola and are excited to offer all clinic participants a discounted Summer gondola pass.  Race to compete or race to simply challenge yourself.
