Get up to Five - Final Run
Your Final run is here
8 weeks ago we gathered together at the introduction seminar, some of you were brand new to Extra Mile Runners and didn't know many people in that room, the room was full of nerves and doubt and most of us were thinking 'I'm not really sure if I can do this', 8 weeks later - you are about to run your 5km.
For some of you this is your first time, for others it's about improving on your last 5km. For all of you, it is about putting into practice the lessons you have learnt over the last 8 weeks and achieving your own goal to the best of your ability.
This has been a journey that has developed friendships, created belief in your ability and has hopefully given you a taste of the buzz of running. We hope you are proud of what you have achieved yourselves, but we have to say, our team is incredibly proud of you all.
Bring it on.
Post Run Coffee

We will send you off on a warm up, do a briefing and then get you away at approximately 7.45am.
The 5km course is an out and back, with the turnaround point at 2.5km. There will be 'km' markers out at 1km, 2km and 2.5km (your turnaround marker).
There won't be any coaches with you on your run - this one you do on your own.
Some of you have been asking about the next group start date.
Our next (and first programmes for 2018!) start the week beginning 22 January 2018.
If you want to continue your running with the Extra Mile Runners team, we would love to see you back in the New Year!

Saturday Runners Christmas: Pack of Cards session
...and collection for the city Mission Food bank
Every year, the Saturday before Christmas we have a Christmas session for our team. It is a free session for everyone and is a bit of fun - we dress up in a Christmassey theme and have a slightly different kind of session - we would love to see you!
We also do a collection for the City Mission Food Bank, so if you would like to contribute a nonperishable food item, we deliver the goodies to the City Mission after the session.
Date: Saturday 23 December
Location: North Hagley Park, Armagh Street Bridge entrance (you will see us!)
Coffee: Bunsen (the old Le Cafe in the Arts Centre), we have reserved the Mezzanine area.
How the session works:
Santa has a pack of cards. You run up to him and she draws a card from the pack - will it be a Heart, Club, Diamond, Spade, beware an Ace or a Joker?
Each card "suit" has a station assigned to it eg:
Hearts = shuttle runs
Diamonds = out and back run
Spade = Burpies
Clubs = pressups
Beware the Ace or a Joker!
What ever card you get, you run to that station and do the exercise assigned to it. Once completed, you run back to Santa for the next card. Everyone works to their own pace, it's heaps of fun!
