Top sports coach to lead running classes in South Lakes

A top UK sports coach is to stage a new series of technique and conditioning classes for runners in the South Lakes.

Paul Tierney, who is the Born to Run UK master coach, will start the series of six classes on Wednesday November 9 at the Pavilion in Staveley.

The classes are open to experienced athletes who want to improve technique and performance, and avoid injury, as well as newcomers who want to develop good running habits.

The classes will take place both inside and outdoors so a high-vis vest or jacket, head torch and “grippy” shoes will be needed.

Paul, who is a sports therapist as well as a coach, and also organises running workshops across the country, is an ultra-distance runner with wins including the Lakeland 100 under his belt. He says: “We will be focusing on mobility, technique, breathing, plyometrics, foot function and more.”

He hopes to attract new runners as well as those who have previously attended sessions in Kendal and Ambleside. “Hopefully this venue suits everyone,” he says.  “I have tried to suit as many previous attendees as I can.  I would love to see you all again as it was a pleasure to work with you during the summer.”

The Pavilion in Staveley is next to the Mill Yard and the football pitch. Further details and booking :
