We're super excited to be launching a weekly free run club in collaboration with Femmi.
FemFriday is a running community that meets every Friday morning in Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland and now Dunedin!
You don't have to be a Femmi or Barre Base member to join – everyone is welcome.
Join us every Friday at 6.30am, leaving from the Barre Base Studio, for either a 3 or a 5km run. These runs are supportive and non-competitive. We run together and leave nobody behind. All welcome, no cost, and no experience required.
We spoke to Femmi Run Coach, Becky Greene, about what makes this inclusive and welcoming run club unique.
Firstly, can you tell us a little more about Femmi?
What if someone doesn't have a regular cycle, or those days have passed?
Even if you don't have a regular menstrual cycle, we can still find ways for you to make the most of your training and tailor your programme to your life stage. Whether you are a developing female, on contraception, pregnant, peri or post menopausal, we will work with you to develop a solution that best fits your stage of life and promotes empowerment through movement.
Where do we meet, and what should we bring?
Meet us at the Barre Base studio every Friday at 6.30am. Just bring your running gear – whatever you feel comfortable in. You can leave belongings inside the studio for safe keeping if you need to.
There will be an option for a 3km or a 5km run. We run together, and nobody is left behind. So come as you are! If you're brand new to running, great! We're here to support one another and move together.
There will be time for you to stretch after class at the studio, or stick around for the famous Barre Base Express class at 7.45am.
