Vancouver (January 13, 2009) – It's a major milestone year for The Vancouver Sun Run with 25 years running – and you also have a chance to make 2009 yours. Whether you want to get in better shape, be inspired, or just plain add something great to your life, then running or walking in The Vancouver Sun Run can help you achieve your goal and a Sun Run InTraining clinic is the start.

This highly successful InTraining program intersperses walking with jogging or running in order to safely and gradually improve your fitness ability. Coordinators at each centre are experienced health and fitness professionals, and work with a team of enthusiastic SportMedBC trained volunteers. Each session offers expert training plus professional advice on shoes, running gear, nutrition, tips for injury prevention, and camaraderie.

The $129 (plus GST) clinic fee includes 13-weekly guided training sessions with trained leaders, a New Balance Lightning Dry Tempo Long Sleeve , Sun Run InTraining Log Book, Sun Run 2008 entry and an event souvenir T-shirt, plus an exclusive gift (valued at $70) with $100+ purchase at Alliance Athletics Stores, expert advice, coaching tips and motivational support as well as online technical support and information.

Now in its third year and in association with SportMedBC, Sun Run InTraining will be holding 16 Nordic Walking clinics. A fantastic cardiovascular activity that works your entire body; clinics include coaching from trained leaders, and the motivation of training with other Nordic Walkers.
