In our clinics, we teach warm-up and cool-down techniques, get participants moving and help them with training. Through every stage of the process, we work to ensure everyone has fun.

'A message of hope and restoration': Sask. running clinic aims to help young people by staying active
SASKATOON -- After years of struggling with addiction and mental health, Tarrant Cross Child decided to pick up a former hobby of his, and has since decided to use it to help young people across the province.
Cross Child started running while in a rehab centre. Once he finished the program, he said he ran the Saskatchewan Marathon in 2015 — a race he won in 1998.
