Sessions & Services

Group Sessions Overview & Timetable

We currently provide two types of Run Coaching sessions and a Strength & Conditioning class and as a new addition this start we have our new City 2 Surf Training program.

  1. Learn to Run Basics – Led by accredited run coaches, this is a 10 week program which takes participants through the necessary training to complete their first non-stop 5km run. This program is aimed at true beginners to running, or those just getting back into it. Weekly small group sessions are 1 hour in duration and homework is given to complete in between sessions.
  2. Running Fitness – Led by accredited run coaches, these weekly sessions incorporate running drills, technique advice and interval sets aimed at getting and keeping you ‘run fit’. Suitable for beginners and beyond, these sessions are 1 hour in duration. Join any time!
  3. ** NEW ** Strength & Conditioning – The perfect match to your Run Coaching session, our Strength & Conditioning class is led by Stacey Kelleher from our supporters Padstow Chiropractic. Stacey is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) and Accredited Exercise Scientist (AES). This class is a conditioning and exercise class aimed at improving core function and injury prevention, with a particular focus on runners. Sessions are capped at 20 participants to provide a more personalised service and to ensure correct technique is developed and maintained. Health fund rebates may apply for these sessions.
  4. ** NEW ** Train for City 2 Surf 2017 – You’ve trained hard and achieved your 5km run goal, so why not set your sights on something new and train up to run 14km in Sydney’s infamous City 2 Surf? Led by accredited Run Coaches, you can choose from a 15 week training program (which includes 3 weeks of running conditioning training to prepare you for the 12 weeks) or the standard 12 week program. These programs include:* A weekly 1 hour on site group training session;
    * Weekly plan including prescribed ‘homework’ runs;
    * An organised ‘Long Run Sunday’ meet up each week;
    * An online support and coaching group to keep you on track in between sessions;
    * Recommendations on events to integrate into your training program to test where your running is at and to enable a taste of what it is like to participate in larger running events.

** NEW in 2017 –  Learn to Run – Online Coaching Group **
If you love the sound of our Learn to Run coaching groups, but none of our times or locations suit you, in 2017 for the first time, we are offering positions in a small online coaching group. This group will run at the same as our on-site programs meaning you will graduate as part of the team, just in your own location, wherever that may be – a different city, a different state, a different country, the possibilities are endless.

Cost & Inclusions:

  • $165 for access to the full 10 week Learn to Run program, including weekly homework.
  • Access to a private online group with other online runners and hosted by a coach to answer any questions and give advice to guide you through the program, plus keep you on track and accountable.
  • Access to the closed Rachel’s Runners Facebook group for extra support of like-minded others.

This group starts the same week as all of our other Learn to Run Basics groups.
