The 5km running
program for women
who aren’t runners… yet.

Join the waitlist

Doors open in January 2023.

So, you’re thinking “maybe this is for me?” …

…but you’re still not sure what to expect.

I get it: Running can be daunting when you’re new to it, or if it’s been years since you last gave it a go!

But I’ve been where you are right now.
And I know what you need next.

You’re here because you want to get stuck into something positive and new. You want to figure out how to prioritise yourself (and yeah, maybe improve your fitness a little at the same time!). That’s exactly what you’ll get inside RUN.

Not only will this program build your fitness and confidence slowly, it’s also gonna give you the support and accountability you need to make these changes stick.

If you’re ready to try something new, I’d love to run with you.

You won’t look back, except to see just how far you’ve come.

“Look Mama, she’s a
runner like you!

Watch the moment our 5km member Gabrielle realised she’d done the impossible (This video gives me goosebumps EVERY time!).

I want to highlight something here:
You know what made Gabrielle a runner in her daughter’s eyes? Getting out the door and having a go each week of the program. That’s it!

It wasn’t running at a certain pace, or being able to run for a set period of time. It wasn’t being able to run up mountains, and at Olympic speeds.

Gabrielle is a runner because she laces up her shoes, and walks out the front door, and has a go. And that’s all it will take for you to become a runner too.

I’ve poured everything you need
to run 5kms in this program.

A flexible "doable" program

A flexible 10 week training program that will build your fitness slowly over ten weeks. Plus tips on technique, and how to run at a pace that you can actually maintain (read: not end up in a breathless, sweaty heap at the end of your street! Trust me, I’ve been there and I won’t let it happen to you inside this program).

You’ll get the program upfront so you can plan out your sessions in advance, and we’ve included extra resources like strength workouts, a mobility and stretching lesson and lessons with our physios to help you start running correctly from the very beginning, and to support your body as you get fitter, and faster and stronger.

Tips to help you actually get out the door

Weekly tips from me, delivered in short, accessible, Mum-friendly formats.

That means: a short video delivered every Sunday – also available as an audio file and a written post. So, you can; read it quietly while your toddler is sleeping, watch a video in bed or listen to the audio while you’re doing jobs/ferrying your teenagers around town in your personal Uber service (we heard you have a 5 star rating?).

Each tip I share will help you get out the door, keep your training sessions on track and help you do things like say no more often (you know you need that!), stop comparing yourself to others, break through your barriers and stop your inner critic.

Chats with me!

Three live calls with me and our resident running coach, Bel!

We’ll work through any challenges you’re facing, offer practical advice and give you feedback in real-time. That’s three opportunities to chat with us live, ask questions and get answers. Direct support to keep you accountable and motivated!

Pelvic Floor Support + Other Expert Advice

I’ve pulled together a team of experts to help guide you on your running journey.

We’ll host live chats with our experts, including:

An online pelvic floor workshop + a pelvic floor strengthening exercise class
Hosted by the women’s health physiotherapists at Finish Line PT, a NY based practice that specialises in helping women return to running. You’ll learn how to support your pelvic floor as you begin running, and get some helpful tips and insight into how to return to running safely.

A nutrition class
Hosted by Renee and Georgia from Nurture the Seed – a duo focused on helping clear the confusion around what to eat pre, post and during pregnancy. In this chat, Renee and Georgia (a clinical dietician and journalist respectively) will help you understand how to fuel your body as a woman tackling new running goals.

Exclusive access to the private RUN community

Plus, you’ll get access to the private RUN Facebook Group.
This is honestly the best part of the whole program. You don’t need to join the group to access any of the course, but when you do, you’ll meet an epic gang of the funniest, warmest and BEST women.
They’ll be taking on RUN with you, ready to support you and cheer you on – as you do the same for them. This is truly where the magic happens!

Extra rewards and support

Support and rewards from The Athlete’s Foot and other brands I love.

But will I REALLY be able to run 5km?!

Yes! But you’re not expected to run 5km straight away. We build up to it over the 10 weeks, with guidelines for each training session about how fast you should be running (Hint: the slower the better!).

I’m not gonna make you train like some Olympic athlete. That’s not what this program is about. It’s about lacing up your running shoes and getting out the door, week after week.

Not necessarily because you love trudging through the streets at the crack of dawn… But because it gives you some much-needed space to be with your own thoughts. To have a sense of identity that goes beyond being a mum. To just be yourself, for 30 minutes a day.

And it’s about how you feel hitting that 5km mark in 10 weeks time. Knowing you’ve worked at this, consistently. Feeling that pride and confidence in your own body.

So dig out those running shoes from the back of your closet, friend.

Let’s get you to that 5km finish line.

Still not convinced you’ll be able to do it?

That’s what these women thought.

Got questions? I’ve got answers!

Is RUN right for me?

If you’re a Mum (over 12 months postpartum) who wants to take on a challenge, learn how to make time for yourself, and feel stronger, YES, this program is for you!

I'm concerned about your pelvic floor strength. How do I know if I'm ready?

Firstly, we love that you’re thinking about this. Pelvic floor health is SO important, and we don’t want you to join this program before you’re ready.

The team at Finish Line PT have put together this handy pre-screen test for you. If you’re unsure if this program is right for you, from a pelvic health perspective, use this test and their accompanying recommendations as a guide.

What was that about 12 months?

While the program has been reviewed by women’s health physiotherapists, this is not a postpartum specific course. If you’ve given birth in the last 12 months, this program is not for you. Take a beat, enjoy (or just survive!) that first year, and come and join us when you’re physically and mentally ready for the challenge. I promise we’ll be worth the wait.

I don't have much running gear. What will I need to do the course?

Look, if you can spring for a new kit, some fancy super-sonic headphones and an extra smart watch gadgety thing that can sense your perspiration… that’s great. Awesome in fact!

But all you really need for this course is a pair of joggers and a positive attitude. Really!

You’ll see in the training programs that sometimes you’ll need to run for a certain amount of time, so a watch can be helpful (but is not imperative – you can always use your phone. Um, you do have a phone don’t you? ?).

You’ll also see that sometimes you need to run for a certain distance so having a watch that gives you this information is helpful, but again, not necessary. You can use Google Maps to work out roughly how far it is around an oval, you can use a free app like Map My Run, or you can drive your planned route and get an estimate using your car’s odometer.   

My kids are all grown up, can I still join?

Of course! If you’re a Mum of teens, toddlers or adults, you can join this course!

Is it available in my country?

Yes, it’s an online course, so as long as you have a computer or smartphone connected to the internet, you can join in!

I've just had a baby, can I join?

While the program has been reviewed by women’s health physiotherapists, this is not a postpartum specific course. If you’ve given birth in the last 12 months, this program is not for you. Take a beat, enjoy (or just survive!) that first year, and come and join us when you’re physically and mentally ready for the challenge. I promise we’ll be worth the wait.

How much access will I have to you, Turia?

You’ll have two opportunities to chat with Turia live on our group coaching calls! She’ll also pop into the Facebook group to answer your q’s once or twice a week. The rest of the time, Team Turia will be here to support you along your journey! No one ever does anything great alone, we’ve got your back 100% of the way.

What's your refund policy?

We want you to have an amazing experience in this course, but if something happens that stops you from participating, we’ll give you 21 days from the course start date (for this round, that’s 21 days from October 4, 2021) to request a refund. After that date, you can still request a refund on compassionate grounds.

What it’s like to train with me

Wondering what it’s like inside the program? Hear from some of my amazing members:

From our awesome community.

“Put your gym membership on hold and sign up to RUN. The feeling of achievement after each run is so worth it… and so is the time for yourself.”

– Lauren

“I went from being too scared to even run for short distances at the gym to actually enjoying running. It started small, made me challenge myself in a safe way and then gave me some quick wins. It was achievable and made me feel successful.”

– Jess

“The most fun, positive and just plain wonderful group exercise experience I’ve ever had in my life!! For a fraction of the cost of a yearly gym membership (or even some boot camps) you can gain fitness, skills and most importantly the best, biggest squad of cheerleaders ever. You’ll be set up to reach amazing goals (both now and in future)!”

– Linda

“Fun, challenging, exhausting but one of the best ‘fitness’ experiences I’ve had. This program works.”

– Chrissie

“I learnt that those distances I had run in the past (that I feared were slipping away from me) were still actually in me. I just needed to believe I could do it. Having Turia’s and Bel’s encouragement as well as this wonderful group of fellow runners helps prove to me that I’m not alone.”

– Sandy

“I’ve discovered just how much I need running – it’s the best head clearer there is. I’m proud that I’ve been able to push through mental and physical barriers, and am running further than I have in 8 years!”

– Amanda

“This is the first training program where I actually saw results and achieved the goal I set myself well ahead of time. The support, training tips and program is perfectly structured to ensure success.”

– Debbie

“Run with Turia is amazing! Fun, flexible and informative. I never thought I could enjoy running for over an hour! Amazed how this program has not only inspired me but my 9 year old (occasional) running buddy.”

– Yvonne

“Run with Turia gave me my sense of self back and gave me time to focus on just me”

– Christie

“Thanks to Turia, I feel like no matter what gets thrown at me, I now have the skills and mindset to get through it!”

– Cirsty

“Turia and the team are amazing, inspiring, motivating, kind and funny!  You will love the program, the coaching and the Facebook page!  Everyone is gorgeous and positive and generous with their feedback.  Of course you will find many challenges but you will grow and feel stronger and more empowered every day! You can do this!”

– Angela

“I can’t adequately describe the shift that has occurred through this program. I always thought of runners as “others”. I now know I am a runner. Yes I am a mother, a friend, a worker but I am also a runner. I can do the hard things… because why not!”

– Eva
