TC 10K clinics begin

SEAPARC offering 14 week program for beginner to advanced walkers

SEAPARC is among 16 Island recreation centres offering a 14-week training program for the annual TC 10K race.

Clinics start this weekend.

There are four programs – one for walking and three running levels – for beginners, intermediate and advanced.

Participants in the clinics receive a comprehensive training program, technical training shirt, TC10K registration and advice from industry experts.

All clinics are led by experienced, trained run/walk leaders.

“TC10K clinics offer a valuable physical training program for participants of all experience and skill levels, along with a really great supportive and motivating environment,” said Jill Shaw, TC10K clinic manager.

The TC10K is Canada’s third largest 10-kilometre race. In 2015, 10,527 registered for the event, which also includes the Thrifty Foods 1.5K Family Run.

To register for the Sooke clinic, please go online to crd.bc.ca/seaparc or telephone at 250-642-8000.

The TC10K is April 24 in downtown Victoria.
