Orange Training Program 2018

On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July City2Surf’s official training partner, Jorg Fitness, will be in Orange to host free training sessions for those preparing for the world’s largest fun run. City2Surf and Jorg Fitness have teamed up with the Orange Runners Club and Office of Sport to give locals and weekend road trip running enthusiasts the opportunity to get City2Surf ready ahead of the event, which is taking place in Sydney on Sunday 12th August.

Jim Owens, owner of Jorg Fitness, and experienced level 4 Athletics Australia Coach of beginners right through to elite, will join the Orange Runners Club to offer two distinct training sessions. On Saturday 28 a skills session will take place focusing on technique and form, followed by a training run on Sunday 29 where attendees will run on a mixture of bitumen and gravel surfaces with some nice inclines; offering locals the perfect training opportunities two weeks before the event itself.

Date Time Location Description
Saturday 28th July 3:00pm Elephant Park Free skills session that includes technique, drills, form etc - beyond the basics - full details coming soon. Elephant Park is located in town, and is relatively flat (along gravel tracks).
