The “Learn to Run for Smokers” program was designed by the Lung Association of Nova Scotia. The objective of the 8-week program is to teach smokers and quitters training and running techniques. The underlying objective is to initiate the participants to running and being active, in order for them to grow a greater interest for it and eventually use it as a motivation to quit smoking, or keep living tobacco-free, since physical activity and smoking don’t belong together.
