It's Your Move Learn to run is an 8-week running program ideal for first-time runners or those running for the first time in a while!

Beginning on June 13, participants will receive a weekly program via Google classroom along with running tips and tricks from Lakehead University Athletics and Student Health and Wellness. This program will help participants go from 0 to 5k throughout the 8 weeks. 

They will be a part of a community through the Google classroom and Strava where they can meet other runners, get motivated, and share their favourite photos. 

This program is open to current students, incoming students, staff, faculty, and alumni from either Campus. Sign up by June 12!
