Have you recently completed a Couch 2 5k programme, or can you comfortably run a 5km and would like to challenge yourself to run further, then the virtual 5km – 10km programme is perfect for you.

The virtual 5km – 10km programme is a 10 week guided virtual programme to support runners to increase their running distance from 5km to 10km. The programme is free to all residents of ABC Council as part of the Get Moving ABC initiative.

Each week, participants will receive an email with their training programme for the upcoming week and will have access to support from qualified coaches. The programme involves three runs per week and you can run at a time and place convenient to you.

There is no set pace that you must run at, the aim is to be able to maintain an effort for a period of time that will gradually increase over the weeks, culminating in a virtual 10km run. All participants who complete the programme will receive a medal.
