Why do a Running Form Workshop?
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 three part Form Workshop provides both practical and theoretical components to provide you with an understanding of your running gait and assist in developing your running form.
