Why do a Running Form Workshop in Summer?
The best time to look at improving your running form is between seasons, after recovering from injury, following a growth spurt, or even when your running is less of a focus in the summer months. The comprehensive three part running form workshop series will provide runners with the tools needed to understand and execute correct running form during your day to day training.
Who is this for?
- Experienced runners: This does not only mean fast. The session will develop and fine tune your technique.
- Beginner runners: The first session at 3:00pm form workshop will be a great way to ensure your running technique develops correctly over time. We will address bad habits early on to ensure you have a happy injury free running experience.
Get ready to transform your running with the intraining Running Injury Clinic Running Form Workshop series in 2017.
NOTE: It is recommended that you do not participate in the practical component of the workshop if you are injured. You may still gain benefit from attending and observing the session.
