GRTW Run Workshop: Running Technique
September 30, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am£15
Did you know that the way that you swing your arms or hold your head as you run could contribute or prevent you getting injured as you run?
Moreover, if you get your technique right – and it does take practise – you could improve your pace, particularly over long distance events of half marathon and above.
If you want to learn how you could improve YOUR running technique to prevent injury and improve your speed, join us for this 75 minute outdoor workshop.
We will break down how the body moves as you run, focusing on each individual component so you have a better understanding of what muscles are activated and what muscles SHOULD be activated. You will need to bring a phone with enough memory to take video (even better if it can take slo-mo) and a notepad and pen.
Working in pairs, you’ll video each other and we’ll then go over your videos so that you can assess your own style. Seeing firsthand on video how you run is one of the most effective ways of ensuring you make changes.
You will need to bring a mat and a phone that has enough memory on it to take video. Also bring a notepad and pen so that you can take notes.
N.B Please note that we will re-schedule this if poor weather (heavy rain) is forecast for the day. There will be limited spaces.
Meet at the stands at Preston Park Velodrome (far side/west) of the track. Parking is by meter in the park.
