Indigenous RunWalk Program

The Indigenous RunWalk Program (IRW) is designed to help participants gradually build fitness levels and increase their stamina in preparation for a 5 or 10K running or walking event. The IRW program has successfully been delivered since 2007 with over 800 leaders trained, reaching over 15,000 participants across the province.

All participants will receive:

  • RunWalk training program brochure and training logbook
  • Access to HealthBeat  – a pre/post health screening program – which will be offered in selected communities
  • Weekly training tips emailed directly to your inbox
  • Access to online educational sessions
  • Grants and Financial Support

Trained IRW leaders (those who completed a two-day training session) apply for a grant to assist with developing and hosting their community RunWalk program, which can include the cost of organizing a National Indigenous Peoples Day 10K event.
