Running Workshops

Workshops are for runners:

  • Of all ages and abilities
  • who are just beginning to run for exercise
  • who are experienced and looking to improve performance
  • who are looking to reduce injury risk
  • who are fighting through soreness/niggles/injuries

Specific topics covered during the workshop include:

  • Running form to minimize impact and overuse injury
  • How to improve running efficiency & speed
  • Plyometric and strength training for runners
  • Injury prevention
  • Running shoe selection: debunking the myths surrounding pronation, heel-toe drop, stability, motion control and cushioning

Workshop attendees will get:

  • Free footwear assessment
  • Free injury consult
  • Free training plan of choice (5K, 10K, half marathon or marathon)


What to expect: 

The workshop will include discussion, instructor demonstrations, as well as a chance to try running drills and exercises.  Please come comfortably dressed in running or workout attire/shoes and bring something to drink. We will NOT actually be doing a ton of running, however—this is primarily a learning experience.  If you are planning to get in a 5+ mile run that day, please plan to do it outside of the workshop.  Because we are not doing a lot of running during the workshop, this will also make it possible for folks who are injured to come and still get a good learning experience—if you are in this boat, we’d love to have you join us!  There will be plenty of time for question and answer time with the instructor, so please bring your questions along.  Free footwear assessments will be done during the workshop.
