Welcome back! We love that you are back with the crew. Since you've done Club10k before your focus may have changed as you come back this time.

For some of you it will be about going faster, some will want to go longer and for others it's just about keeping moving with your mates. 

Over the next 8 weeks we are aiming to help you take that next step forward in your growth.

Session reminders 

Roll Calls: 

Weekday sessions: When you arrive, please "check in" with the coach taking the 'Club10k" Roll Call.

Saturday sessions: When you arrive please tick yourself off the roll call which will be on a table at the session. 

Bring a Watch:

For the Monday morning / Thursday evening sessions you will need a watch with a stopwatch function as these sessions are based on time that you need to keep track of yourselves. Also some Saturday sessions (for the beginner level) also have a timed run component. For the Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning sessions our coach will be calling our your sets - so a GPS watch will be helpful to keep track of your pace but not absolutely necessary. 

Key Bag:

We have a key bag for your car keys and will look after these for you during the session. Any other gear that you bring is your responsibility, we haven't had anything go missing yet (touch wood!) but just so you are aware. 


We will take you through stretches at the end of your session then you are free to go!

Session outline

There are 3 group sessions each week. When you registered you nominated whether you will be doing morning or evening sessions. Below is a description of each of the group sessions. 


Evening Group: Tuesday evening 5.40pm
Morning Group: Wednesday morning 6.10am
Location: Netball Courts, South Hagley Park

The track session is your interval training. A coach will be calling out your intervals as you run around a track that we set out on the netball courts at South Hagley Park.

Before your Track Session our coach will take you through an 11min strength warm up, you will do 11 exercises (1 minute per exercise). We will provide the resistance bands at this session. These movements are aimed at strengthening the areas we use for running and recruit (and "wake up") the correct muscle groups, they will take a couple of sessions to get used to but are very beneficial to your running. 

Refer to your programme for the track session intervals, you don't need to remember them as the coach will direct you at the session but it is a good idea to be familiar with the session before you begin.


Evening Group: Thursday evening 5.40pm
Morning Group: Monday morning 6.10am
Location: Netball Courts, South Hagley Park

Our coach will guide you through this session. The session has a combination of strength and interval based running and has been designed to improve your strength and aerobic fitness.

You will start with a 5min warm up followed by the circuit/run sets. 
The sets are short and sharp so timing is crucial and quick transitions.

On the 4min run sets (refer to your programme), the aim is to get further along the course each time in the 4min sets.


Saturday morning 7.30am
Location: Various

This is your long run session. You will see on your programme that the distances increase each week until we get to the longest run in Week 7.  Refer to your programme and weekly newsletters for each week's session.

Within this programme there are 3 different levels you can choose from: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. As you have done Club10k before  you want to be looking at Intermediate or Advanced.  Choose a level that feels right for you but is going to challenge your growth.

As we are starting a new training block, we want to give you a recovery yoga sequence to do once or twice a week during this 8 week programme. 

This simple 20-minute sequence includes poses that will work to increase your mobility and ease postrun discomfort. It can be used to help aid recovery after a long run or race but can also be used as a way to work in a quick yoga session after a shorter run.

'There will be days that you have every excuse under the sun not to go to a session. These are the very sessions that you absolutely HAVE to go to as these are the ones that give you the best sense of achievement.'  – Pam Thomas
