Training programs

The FitSpirit Mother/Daughter Challenge comprises a 20, 30 or 40 km walk, run or bike ride in teams, over two days. Once you have chosen the distance you would like to complete and how you will complete it, you can follow the corresponding training program.* Each eight week long program (from June 21st to August 13th) has been carefully crafted by experts and will help you finish the challenge both safely and with a smile on your face!

*Training programs will be available soon.

Runners:

  • Beginner (for those who plan to run a maximum of 5 km each day for the Challenge).
  • Intermediate/advanced (for those who plan to run more than 5 km each day for the Challenge).

Walkers:

  • For all levels.

Cyclists:

  • For all levels.

We are grateful for the support of The Running Clinic and Isabelle Gagnon, kinesiologist, for designing these training programs.

Weekly missions

Over the eight weeks of training leading into the event, we will give you a mission that may admittedly be silly (but always fun) to complete.

Experts to answer your questions

A kinesiologist and a nutritionist are available to answer all your questions confidentially via email throughout the adventure. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you might have! For all your physical-activity questions: kin@fitspirit.ca. For all your nutrition questions: nutrition@fitspirit.ca.

We want you to keep us posted!

Share your ups and downs during training and your weekly missions by regularly submitting photos or videos to the Challenge’s private Facebook group. If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can send your photos and videos to challenge@fitspirit.ca. A video made up of all the photos and footage you share will be produced to commemorate the entire experience… a great way to remember and look back on your mother-daughter adventure!

Fundraising

FitSpirit Mother/Daughter Challenge registration is free. Instead, we encourage teams to raise funds for FitSpirit, a not-for-profit organization with a mission to get teenage girls to stay physically active for life. The goal of the event is to raise $200,000. Below is a toolbox to help you with fundraising.

Teams that choose not to fundraise can decide to do so at a later time. To make a donation, simply click the “Donate” button on your profile page.
