The ASICS Training Series

The ASICS Training Series is back for another year and you can find these sessions Wednesday evenings or Sunday mornings. Pick one, or pick both, just choose your challenge.

Tired of reeling out the long lonely training miles with nothing but your watch, your music and the pavement for company?

Why not join other people with just the same 10km, Half Marathon or Marathon goals in an 12 week series of training runs aimed at having you prepared, peaking and motivated to tackle your target race and break your personal best on 16th October!

The first session commences on Sunday 31st July.

  • Commencing in July, the 2016 ASICS Training Run Series will guide your 10km, Half Marathon or Marathon training with varied paces, distances and courses to follow.
  • Each separate group will have at least one Run Leader to take command, so all you need to do is select your group then tag along for the ride.
  • Sessions will be held on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, giving you the flexibility to select either session or both to supplement your training.
  • Sessions are FREE to attend with a gold coin donation to CPEC optional

The 2016 ASICS Training Run Series follows a graduated program specifically designed to have you in condition when it counts. With experienced coaches to supervise the training and Run Leaders guiding you each step of the way, group training is an enjoyable way to build up the training kilometers whilst meeting new training partners and learning the craft of running along the way.

Our courses are designed to take in plenty of the elements you'll encounter on race day, so be prepared and join us in July for the 12 weeks that will help you reach your goal at the MCG.
