Half or Full Marathon
About the Clinic
What Can I Do To Prepare?
By the start of the clinic you should be able to run 3 to 4 times per week and you should be prepared to run 10 km easy for your first long run if you’re training for the half marathon and 21 km if you’re training for the full marathon. Make sure you’re in the correct footwear for your particular biomechanics (and that they still have life in them) and your apparel is adequate for enjoying the full range of our Vancouver winter and spring weather conditions.
What Should I Expect?
Expect to have a unique online training experience to help stay motivated and to nurture a feeling of community during these isolating times.
Meet the Instructor
Jerry Ziak has been a competitive middle and long-distance runner since 1986. His passion for the sport began at the young age of 10 when he began competing on the track and over cross country in distances ranging from 800 meters to 5 km. Since then he has explored every distance up to the marathon at the national and international level and continues to compete as a masters (over 40) runner in cross country and on the road. He is an owner of Forerunners North Shore and enjoys coaching runners of all abilities. His particular passion is the discovery and practice of training techniques and daily behaviours that allow us to continue moving youthfully as we age.
