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.

Run Leader Development workshops

We relaunched our practical Run Leader Development Day workshops for the summer of 2021. Registration is now closed for this latest round of workshops but please continue to follow our social media channels or check back on our website for future updates and opportunities.

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 is 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 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.

Cost – £20 per person
