Determine Your Level

In order to prevent injury, it is recommended that you take a training program best suited to your current fitness level. For walkers, the program is for newly active walkers and is designed to establish a regular routine and start you off conservatively. The walking effort is a relaxed, normal pace, with lots of rest between workouts. Each week you will see improvement. You will slightly increase your walking times every two weeks. For runners, if you can currently run gently for 1 minute then you are ready. The pace while running should be gentle enough that you can carry on a conversation.

Participants can expect

  • Educational resources from the Canadian Cancer Society and support from Walk or Run to Quit coaches.
  • A walking or running program that will teach participants to run/walk 5 km by the end of 10 weeks, with a gradual progression of run and walk breaks.
  • Support from other smokers on how to quit smoking.
  • Additional support from National quitline services
