Run Leader Development Days 2021

Our Run Leader Development Days series of informative and engaging workshops are aimed at leaders and coaches from affiliated clubs and RunTogether groups. They are designed to bring leaders and coaches together in an environment where they can network and learn from each other by sharing skills and challenges, plus expand their knowledge of managing and growing groups, and enhance their understanding of technical skills in running.

Sign-up for our new practical Run Leader Development workshops!

Back for the summer of 2021 are our popular practical Run Leader Development Workshops – and you can book online now!

The sessions are targeted at qualified Leaders in Running Fitness (LIRF) and those who regularly support/deliver group running sessions. The practical days will build on the content covered in the virtual run leader development days that were held in the winter, but attendees don’t need to have attended the virtual days to benefit from the practical sessions.

The lead tutor will be Chris Hollinshead and these sessions will challenge leaders to think about:

  • Why are we doing the activities and sessions we are doing?
  • How do we maximise our runners potential, in the time we have available?

The practical sessions will cover the following:

  • Warm up activities
  • Mobility, range of movement, and running technique
  • Developing ideas to support mixed ability groups
  • Exploring energy systems
  • Communication, demonstration and delivery of sessions.
  • Networking and learning from one another.

We will run two sessions at each location – a morning session 10:00-12:30pm and an afternoon session 1:00-3:30pm. Both sessions will be the same content so at each location we are delivering 2 sessions.
