Canadian Runner Clinics are brought to you by Kelowna native and Olympian, Malindi Elmore. As a fourteen-year veteran of high level running, Malindi has excelled at running since a young age. With a strong love of running, she has always said “running chose me and not the other way around!”
The clinics are geared towards for abilities / goals of runners but it is recommended that you can run 30 minutes or 5 km before joining as we do between 5-10 km of running in each session.
Workouts are phased appropriately for the season and include fartleks, intervals, hills, tempos and speed. Each clinic session incorporates a range of skills and principles to improve your running, including: drills, strides, dynamic stretching, endurance running, speed work and functional strength exercises while also addressing topics such as periodized training, recovery, stretching, racing and nutrition.
Malindi will work with each athlete to ensure that the clinic is appropriate to your fitness and level of experience so that it is a challenging and rewarding experience for all athletes.
BC Athletics Sanctioned Clinics
All Canadian Runner Clinics are sanctioned by BC Athletics (BCA), the provincial non-profit amateur sport organization for Athletics. The purpose of BC Athletics is to promote, encourage, and develop the widest participation and the highest proficiency in Track & Field, Road Running, Marathon, Ultra, Cross Country & Trail Running and Race Walking in the province of British Columbia.
A training membership for BC Athletics will be required for all participants. As the fee only needs to be paid once a year, any 2011/2012 participants will be waived the additional fee but if you are new to the clinics you will need to pay an additional $16.80. This provides the participants with liability and sport accident/injury insurance, as well as eligibility for discounts at BCA partners, and other membership benefits. It also helps to support a variety of BCA programs including RunJumpThrow, provincial teams, coaching and officiating courses.
We will also be offering an additional service this session: personalized 8 week training plan. If you are interested in a plan for the other days of the week to work towards a time or distance or fitness goal, I can prepare a periodized 8 week plan to complement the clinic workouts and your goals.
Please ensure that you are fit and able to participate in the clinics prior to participation. Check with your doctor or health care professional if you have any doubts!
