Runners of all abilities are being offered the chance of a training day with experts in the heart of the Lake District.
The “Run Well” workshop is organised by Paul Tierney and Dr Sarah McCormack of Missing Link Coaching and will be held in Ambleside.
The workshop is designed for runners who want to make the most of their available training time. It focuses on improving running performance through smarter strength training, running efficiency and injury avoidance. There will be some indoor theory and then outdoor practical training on local trails and hills.
Paul and Sarah are both accomplished and race-winning athletes. A certified biomechanics coach and ITEC Level-3 certified Sports Massage Therapist, Paul has represented Ireland twice at the World Ultra Trail Championships and was the 2015 Lakeland 100 Mile Race Winner.
Sarah has won the European Cross Country Championships team gold medal (2012), Scottish 5000m title (2012, 2013), Scottish 10k title (2012), Irish Inter-Clubs Cross Country title (2014), and Snowdon International Mountain Race (2014, 2015) and has two top-ten finishes in the World Mountain Running Championships (2013, 2015). She is a certified Health and Performance Coach.
The workshop is on Saturday, 17 June 2017 in Ambleside, with an “early bird” rate of £60 if enrolled before May 17. Tickets are £70 thereafter. Paul and Sarah also offer an optional one-to-one appointment for running technique analysis and coaching on Sunday, June 18. Spaces for these 60-minute sessions are limited on a first come, first served basis.
