Lake City Athletic Club - Rotorua
Lake City's popular Marathon Clinic caters for both runners and walkers to help prepare particularly first timers for the Rotorua Marathon and Half Marathon. The clinic has two sections, with the walk section getting underway early October / November and the running section towards the end of January. All abilities are catered for but it is preferred when first attending that you can walk comfortably at your own pace for at least 2 hours and run for a least 1 and ¼ hours at you own pace. The Marathon clinic is a great way to gain a fitness base in the company and camaraderie of others.
For more information go to Lake City Club or email the club.
