Our Women’s Running Group is fast becoming one of the strongest run coaching offerings in Canberra. And we love how supportive and enthusiastic women are about running! Functional Running Canberra offers dedicated Women’s only Coached Running sessions to provide additional confidence, to alleviate safety concerns of running alone at night or early mornings, for great company and the special accountability that only a group can offer.

Our Women’s Running Group is a progressive coaching program aimed at improving fitness and technique.

With us, you will never ‘hold the group up’ and never feel pressured to perform. Recreational runners and absolute beginners absolutely welcome.

In 2017 we will be putting a strong push on family friendly fitness and working to improve the health of our children. And so, our sessions are open for children who come with their parents (ages 8 – 16 years old – parents must participate along side their child).

Registrations open for next term!
Dates: Week starting 8 May 2017 to week starting 12 June 2017

Theme: Winter accountability, strength and mixed intervals

Duration: 6 weeks
Term starts in the week of 8 May 2017 through to week starting 12 June 2017
Cost: $72

Newcomers welcome! This term will include a mix of interval types to offset runners’ own steady state running as well as strength training to finish off each session. This term will be particularly helpful for keeping runners accountable and motivation through the first cold months of the year.

Places limited to 20 runners per location/coach.

Functional Running also offers Mixed Group sessions on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon
