Running: it’s not just for sporty ladies with six-pack abs & bouncing ponytails. It’s for manically busy moms. It’s for intellectual bookworms. It’s for curvy girls, skinny-minnies, and everything in between. It's for YOU.
Life after becoming a runner...
keep up with your super-energetic kids
be one run away from a great mood
feel more confident jumping into a spontaneous softball game (or bike ride)
become fearless and finally start those horseback riding lessons or Italian classes
eat kale with enthusiasm and joy (coz now you want to help your body run better)
you finally call yourself a runner
Join our 5K Course for beginners, and discover the transformative power of running. We’ll bring the wisdom, the guidance and an amazing training plan that will get you to 5K, safe and strong.
You just show up — and run.
Up & Running sh*ts all over Couch to 5K! Shauna and Julia should be knighted (damed?) for getting me running.

I'm so grateful to you both for creating this incredible program. I feel fitter, happier and more motivated than I have in years. I call myself a runner now and have so many running dreams and aspirations to pursue. What’s even better is that I know that with Up & Running I can achieve them… where have you been all my life?

That would be us! Up & Running was created by expert Running Coach Julia Jones and inspirational author & Community Director Shauna Reid. We’ve got a beautiful blend of athletic prowess & community-building superpowers. Just ask our happy, healthy, highly-excitable e-course participants.
What Julia and Shauna do goes way beyond my expectations for an online class. I came here expecting training plans and a little more, but what I have received is a golden ticket for the Wonka factory.
Up & Running really has been the best thing I have done for myself in years, and not just for the running. My confidence and happiness in my own skin has increased so much and I love what my body can DO, rather than obsessing about what it looks like.
I was pretty confident I’d finish the 5K Course, but I really didn’t expect to love it so much that I’d keep running. And I definitely didn’t expect to love the forums so much – so many amazing women: supportive, funny and all just trying their best.
Our absolute promise.
We will get you Up & Running — safely. You don’t need to be an Olympic athlete or even a once-a-week jogger to join the 5K e-course. We’ve designed it with total beginners in mind. And we’ll show you how to take care of your muscles — and your mind — as you start your training adventure.
We are your mentors, your cheerleaders, and your biggest fans. If we could show up at every single one of our e-course participant’s 5K finish lines, we would — with frosty Gatorade, a bouquet of roses, and a gigantic bear hug.
We know what we’re doing — and it shows. We’ve got testimonials galore. And we
treasure each one.
You will transform. No ifs, ands, or ever-shrinking butts about it. If you commit to the 5K training with even 50% of your heart, you will transform. Your body will change. You’ll discover new muscles you never knew existed. You’ll find inner reserves of commitment & power.
That finish line? Consider it crossed.
If you can comfortably walk one kilometre in around 12 minutes then you’re ready for our 5K e-course (if you're not quite there yet, our Up & Moving course is perfect for you).
