My 5 km finish line

I am running a 6 week training program to get people to the finish line of their first 5 km event. The program will run from the week of the 15th July through to the Shepparton Running Festival on the 25th August.

The program will include 2 x coaching sessions a week (date and time to be determined) and 1 x homework session per week.

The price is currently set at $70 for the six weeks, which includes entry to the running festival, coaching, a t-shirt, access to a discounted Shepparton Runners Club membership, plus other fun stuff…

If you are interested, fill in the attached form or if you have any questions feel free to message me. I’m pretty excited to be able to do this, so I hope you guys are too! – Tara


Currently in Ireland and did the Killarney parkrun today. It is a great two lap course in the grounds of the magnificent Muckross house. It was certainly a novelty to be running beside ‘jaunting cars!’

Sue Olley has been out touring the last 2 weeks. May 25 Sunbury parkrun 27:28, and May 1 Bright parkrun 25:06.

The Urquhart’s ran  at the MS Albert Park fun run with Rory taking out first male under 18 in a time of 43:57. Lila and Pete also ran in the same 10 km event finishing in 102.58

Lila got first in her age category for girls

Feeling stoked after recording a PB in this morning’s Shepparton Runners Club 4.9km cross country handicap of 22.54. My PB for 5km is 22.52 so nice to know that some committed training is paying off. Excited to go sub 23:00. Onwards and upwards!!! – Nadine Edwards.

Benefits of Yoga for Runners


Get more from your running workouts with YOGA!


Yoga is not only a great compliment to running, but stretching is crucial for runners and yoga is a fabulous way to aid the recovery your body needs.


Yoga’s internal focus centres your attention on your own body’s movements rather than on an external outcome. Runners can use yoga practice to improve balance, strength, increase range of motion, and train the body and mind.


Yoga teaches us to elongate the spine without adding any tension. Alignment is key in yoga and as we learn to stand taller, stronger without tension we can practice this in our running technique.


Tension can be the runner’s downfall, and breath awareness is key to reducing it. Conscious breathing exercises, which soothe the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems and relax the entire body, can be of great benefit to runners.
