DUAL Scholarship Programme

'Couch to 10k in 16 weeks'

mailto:nickc@totalsport.co.nzThis year we're going to make a few changes... Our aim is to get people off the couch, get them fit and healthy, and ready to take on the 10km run and walk event at the 2015 Partners Life DUAL. If you're someone, or know someone, who's always wanted to make a health and fitness change in their lives but never made the step, the DUAL Scholarship Programme is for you. From mid November until the event in March successful applicants will be fitted with a free Marmot running t-shirt, shorts and Hoka One One shoes. Applicants will then come to an intro evening where you'll be organised with an exercise schedule and nutrition plan that you'll follow over the 16 weeks.

Applicants will also need to commit to group training one hour, one night a week for 16 weeks in Auckland City. Finally you'll be registered in the 10km event on Saturday 28th March 2015 where you'll take part in the event with other participants, and your goals achieved! There are no costs involved in being part of the DUAL Scholarship Programme. Sound like a bit of you? Or does it make you think of someone that a scholarship could benefit? Take the step.

Applications for the 2015 DUAL Scholarship Programme will close on Tuesday 30th September.
