Stride with Pride’ – 5km Program
The ‘Stride with Pride’ – 5km project aims to improve the health and well-being of lesbians through participation in a weekly walking/running group. The group will be led by a qualified running coach. Taking place at Camperdown Oval (Sydney) which is easily accessible by public transport and has street parking available nearby. The program will run for six consecutive weeks and the group will conclude their program by participating in Sydney Frontrunners ‘Stride with Pride’ event that is part of World Pride Festival in late February 2023. 

Each session will be one hour in length and will gradually build upon each participant’s individual fitness level. Sessions will include mobilisation and activation exercises to warm up and prepare for the activity, walks/runs, followed by a cool down and stretching exercises.  We will create an environment that is inclusive, positive and friendly to ensure all participants feel valued and supported.
