Can I do a Partnerunning Program if I am pregnant?

If your doctor says you can, then you can.

If you are pregnant please follow directions from your doctor and immediately consult your doctor with any concerns. Fitness training can be a great way to maintain fitness and avoid excess weight when pregnant but we strongly advise working closely with your doctor.

Connecting with women runners via the forums is one of the advantages of the Partnerunning Academy.

As a full time fitness professional, dedicated runner and mother of 2 Sue is a great source of advice for pregnant runners.

How old do you need to be to undertake a Partnerunning Program?

People of all ages can undertake Partnerunning Programs. Before signing up for a specific distance program you should check on the conditions of race entry as often there is a minimum age for entry.

Children from age twelve may be suitable to train for 5km walk events and in some cases running 5km. In our experience races of 5km or 10km are suitable distances for people under 18.

If you are under 18 years of age then a parent or legal guardian must sign up on your behalf and we strongly advise them to train with you or at least supervise your training.

The Partnerunning Academy is provided online and we advise parents and guardians to implement a considered approach to safe use of the internet.

Is there an age limit for participating in a Partnerunning Program?

We have coached people in their 70’s and 80’s. A 100 year old is reported to have completed a marathon in 2011. As with people of all ages we recommend you consult your doctor to ensure you are physically fit to undertake a run or walk training program.

Health and fitness is the pre-requisite rather than age once you reach your older years.

Can I do the program if I have an injury?

If you are injured we strongly advise you to consult physiotherapist and/or medical doctor before commencing training.

Depending on your injury it may be possible to undertake a training program but you should do this in consultation with your medical adviser.

Many running injuries can be cured quickly if a rest and treatment program is followed. Ignoring injuries can lead to them becoming chronic and ultimately injury can prevent you from running at all.
