Join Team UWA at the HBF Run for a Reason

The HBF Run for a Reason is back and it's set be bigger and better than ever! Run, walk, jog or wheel through the City of Perth with us on Sunday 19 May. #BeTheReason

Choose from the 4km, 12km or half marathon and soak up the electric atmosphere on the day! You can also choose to donate or fundraise for your chosen health charity. Whatever your reason, however much you can raise, it all makes a difference.

Team UWA training sessions

“A thousand miles begins with a single step” is a famous saying from Chinese philosopher, Lao-Tzu.

Entering the HBF Run maybe your first step, but motivation to train can be the biggest obstacle to your success. You are more likely to succeed in finishing or achieving a target time if you have a run training program and are fairly disciplined in following it.

The dilemma that all of us face at some time is “doing the training” even if we have a run program to follow. Motivation aside, it is much easier to train with another person or with a group to support you on your running journey.
