10K Training Guide for Beginners
Running a 10K race can be a daunting prospect for many beginners who search online for a 10K training guide for beginners to help them train for their 10K race. But there are now far better FREE 10K training guides for beginners that are delivered daily into a mobile app, such as Get Event Fit.
Experts agree that successful 10K race preparation, especially for beginners, must involve more than simply improving running fitness — effective, injury free preparation requires strength and conditioning of the whole body with active recovery strategies, correct nutrition and a positive mindset.
However, the typical downloadable PDF training guide for beginners that you can find by searching the Internet, simply outline a week-by-week running fitness schedule. It’s very difficult for a PDF to educate, inspire and regularly motivate everyday throughout your training journey and the more pages a PDF contains, the more overwhelming it becomes and the less likely it is to be read.
Virtuathon have partnered with Get Event Fit who provide all our event training, including our 10K training guides for beginners.
Virtuathon, in association with Get Event Fit, encourages you to become fitter and healthier at your own pace whilst you raise vital funds for your chosen charity – even collect limited edition finisher medals for all your hard work!
The Virtual Runathon 5K, 10K and Half Marathon virtual races are designed to increase in distance to challenge you as your fitness grows. Virtual races can be completed at your own pace, individually or as a team, anywhere you like – at home, in the gym or your local footpath. And to help you fully prepare for your 10K race we’ve included comprehensive 10K training guides for beginners from Get Event Fit.
Get Event Fit is an exciting new resource, available FREE from more than 100 participating charities, to help fundraising runners reduce the risk of injury and become fitter, stronger and better prepared for their running event.
