Sessions are geared towards marathon and half marathon runners, but they are also suitable for beginner runners as you go at your pace and work to your own ability.
We focus on different goals during the calendar year. For example, from mid-year we work towards the Auckland Marathon and Half Marathon.
Monday and Friday sessions will vary depending on the current focus, however Wednesday is generally the speedwork session of the week. There are also regular calibration runs (5km) so you can see where you’re at and also to determine your current pace group.
Sessions are held rain or shine. Remember to wear a watch, bring a water bottle, and warm/dry clothes to put on afterwards. Don’t come if you’re feeling unwell or are injured. Always listen to your body, and stop if something hurts or doesn’t feel right!
We meet on the AUT Millennium track just inside the main gates, and love to stop for a coffee at the café after!
All sessions are run by Kiri Price, Qualified and Experienced Coach (Athletics NZ Accredited Coach) and 200x marathoner. Kiri has been coaching runners at AUT Millennium since 2010 and is passionate about helping runners on their own running journey.
Attendees are welcome to join our closed AUT Millennium Running Group on Facebook to keep up to date with communications.
