Progress from a shuffle around the block to your best 5K.
This 10 week ecourse will guide you to run longer and faster to do 5K in your best time!
Our years of experience has proven that taking your jogging from a 10 min shuffle to a capable 5K requires:

- Support and encouragement
How does it work?
The entire course is delivered electronically (not face-to-face).
Each Sunday night you’ll receive your recommended training for the week via email. This plan is expertly crafted to build your fitness safely and efficiently throughout the course. Simply follow the three training sessions each week and you won’t believe your results.
Mid week a lesson will arrive via email, teaching you about technique, different types of training, fun run tips, and troubleshooting. You’ll be informed, motivated and thoroughly prepared for a 5K fun run.
Fitness success is greatly enhanced by social support. You’ll have access to our closed Facebook group so you can ask us questions, learn from our other runners, stay motivated and share your challenges and triumphs.

“Over the last year my health, fitness and confidence have skyrocketed, and I’m writing now to say thank you. So far this year, I’ve entered and completed four large scale public fitness events! Even when my friends dropped out, I still had the confidence and drive to go and run on my own. This is a huge change in my life. When I started, I couldn’t run the 2 blocks to the tram without hyperventilating, and now I’ve competed in two 10K races. On a recent road trip, I got up early every morning to jog along the beach. So thanks! Fitness will now hopefully remain an important part of my daily routine. I’ve made healthy friends and we go out riding and running together for fun… it really has been a complete lifestyle overhaul.” – Miranda Hill, HBF running group
