Olympos running training
Do you want to take up running in order to be able to run 5 km or even 10 km (individually or in a relay team) on 19 March? Or are you an experienced runner but want to improve your running performance, push your limits and increase your speed to be fit and ready for the half or whole marathon? At Olympos, you train once a week under the supervision of a professional trainer, who will ensure that you make rapid progress.
Olympos offers training sessions for runners from the first week of January right through to the USP marathon, for various levels and distances. Running in a group with other students and USP employees is highly motivating and provides good company. The trainer provides you with personal feedback each week, and you get an assignment for the following week.
