OUTRUNCANCER RUN CLUB
You ran the Corporate Treadmill Marathon, you ticked a box, you got the t-shirt and NOW WHAT?
How about joining the OUTRUNCANCER RUN CLUB and keep motivated and fit for the rest of the year?!
The ORC (which is an awesome abbreviation by the way) is an opportunity to connect with our amazing community and run together. The aim is to build friendships, fitness and keep each other accountable to train regularly, harder and take things to the next level if we wish.
The ORC is open to everyone.
If you are a previous participant in the Corporate Treadmill Marathon or not, whether you just started running or you are an Olympian, whatever your athletic background, you will find the sessions have something for you.
We welcome “park runners”, “road runners”, “trail runners” and “ultrarunning maniacs”!
COACHES AND RUN LEADS
If you run, you are a runner.
And if you are a runner we would love to see you take the role of run leader at some point.
So we will actively encourage everyone to actively participate in the sessions.
To kick things off, the following people have raised their hand.
Jason, an inspired leader and founder of Movelife, who will share his wealth of knowledge and experience in corporate wellness on how to achieve optimal health and empower you with the tools to Make your Move! He is an accomplished runner and triathlete and his infectious passion and enthusiasm will drive you to be a high performer in all aspects of your life.
Alice, a seasoned runner, ANSW level 1 coach, little athletics squad coach and mother of three, knows how to fit in training and running fast, despite a very full life. Alice is constantly perusing efficiencies in her running to go faster with less effort, therefore, is a true believer in running drills. And she is probably the only one who can do them correctly.
Each run has a purpose and is part of an 8-week cycle to improve fitness. With a time trial on week-9 so you can track your progress.
We focus on correct running form, developing core strength and get people outside their comfort zone: running hills, interval sessions, stairs workouts, and a heap of more fun stuff!
Rain, hail, wind or sunshine, the sessions are on each Friday lunchtime between 12:10 PM and 1:00 PM, SHARP!
The meeting point is Munn’s Slipway, Barangaroo Sydney
Any changes or updated are communicated via our Facebook group.
The sessions follow the structure:
5 minutes: Purpose of today’s session
10 minutes: Warm up and Strength exercises
30 minutes: Running specifics
5 minutes: Review of today’s session
The training is divided into 8 weeks cycle.
Week 1 & Week 5: Build Base & Form (running drills, slower running)
Week 2 & Week 6: Build Strength (hills, stairs,..)
Week 3 & Week 7: Improve Speed (interval training)
Week 4 & Week 8: Build Endurance (long interval, long-running)
Week 9 is time trial!
Ideally, all runners will proudly wear their OUTRUN CANCER t-shirt or singlet. For those who don’t have one or would like a spare… simply ask!
WE LOVE IT AND WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES
“Since joining the Outrun Cancer run club, my form and speed have improved massively and I’m definitely a more mindful runner, thinking about my form and goals. The club is a great mix of drills and stretches and different styles of sessions such as hills, intervals and tempo running” – Micheal
“The weekly Outrun Cancer run club sessions are a great way to engage with both a top quality coaching team as well as a community of like-minded runners. Each week’s session focusses on a different running skill making sure that you continue to stretch the boundaries of your comfort zone. The passion that the coaches have to help runners of all levels improve their technique and develop is incredible to be a part of.” – Nick
