FIT is a woman’s only training group who cater for all levels of fitness and offer a variety of programs. Whether your goal is to complete your first triathlon or improve your running technique FIT will have a program for you. Offering both coached and un-coached sessions around Lake Burley Griffin or on the north side of Canberra you will find a training partner (or ten) to help you reach your goals regardless of how competitive you are. FIT is very social and welcoming of all ages. All Saturday runs have the option of a breakfast in a nearby café afterwards, ensuring you can finish your chat.
The YMCA of Canberra offers a women’s jog-along on the first Sunday of the month. This is a handicapped event and a perfect opportunity to push yourself to improve your speed. With prizes awarded for consistency and improvements, the Jogalong has a great social and community atmosphere.
Also presented by the YMCA of Canberra Runners Club, the annual Women’s and Girl’s Fun Run is run in March / April each year. 2013 saw over 1,000 competitors of all ages and abilities race, jog or walk the 5km course. Starts / finishes at Stage 88 in Commonwealth Park and sponsored by ActewAGL.
