About Forerunners’ Clinics: 
Founded by Karen and Peter Butler, Forerunners became the first running store in Canada to conduct organized running clinics in November 1986. The weekly running clinics began as a way to foster fitness and education to customers as the popularity of running skyrocketed during the “Running Boom” of the 1970s and 80s.

“As we approach our 38th year store anniversary we are excited to continue our clinic program,” says Peter, Forerunners co-founder and former 2:10:56 marathon runner.




What Can I Do To Prepare?

To ensure that you get the most out of your experience in the clinic, come with a positive frame of mind and an eagerness to learn about the many benefits of running. We suggest you should be able to run an easy 30 minute run non-stop prior to joining.

What Should I Expect?

You should expect to have a great run, and have a great time. We will guide you over 12 weeks to make you a stronger, better runner. A program for “homework” will be given out in the weekly email.
