Running Technique Workshops and Groups Suitable For All Abilities at Baslow Sports Field and Longshaw Estate.
Running technique workshops and consultations
Next workshop: Sunday 17th Feb 2019, 10am-12:30pm, Baslow Sports Field
We are designed to run.
But we are not taught how to run…
Whether you’re an experienced runner or are just starting out, benefit from the expertise and experience of Britain’s Former Female Athlete of the Year and twice European 800m medallist, Becky Lyne, as she guides you toward running GRACE-fully.
Using this memorable acronym you will be taught how to tap into the ‘free energy’ so successfully exploited by professional athletes.
Not only will this greater understanding and execution of the body’s innate movement patterns unlock faster PBs, it will also serve to reduce injury and create a more positive mindset when running.
What the 2.5 hour workshops include:
– Scientific explanations and demonstrations of how humans are
designed to run.
– Working through the five step GRACE-ful Running Programme to
enhance your running form.
– Slow speed personalised video analysis – copies of which will be sent to you.
– Practice what you have learned with a solo ‘discovery run’ in the
beautiful surrounding countryside (Chatsworth and Baslow Edge are right on the doorstep).
– Bonus body maintenance session of foam rolling, trigger point release, zen chi relaxerciser and self massage whilst discussing how to apply GRACE in your everyday life.
– Free home-made protein balls and energy drinks!
Spaces on workshops are limited to 10 people to enable us to give participants sufficient attention and feedback. If a course is fully booked you will be added to a waiting list or we can book you onto another workshop. Workshops will proceed subject to a minimum booking of 5 people. If there are fewer than this, you are entitled to a full refund or we can book you onto another date.

“After 30 years of running and a recent knee operation I have been so inspired by Becky’s training, programmes, coaching and endless enthusiasm so much so that I am now enjoying running and training more than I have ever done and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is just brilliant !”
“Thanks for helping so much with our son. He is massively enjoying his training night with you and feels motivated. He really felt so proud of himself last night and incrementally, this is feeding into his self-confidence and his desire to have goals and dreams. It’s helping him too with his work at school i.e. a more ‘can-do’ attitude.”
“After many years running, I’d become a bit of a “plodder”. Becky’s running form tips helped put the spring back in my step. By concentrating on running form not effort, I took 8 minutes off my 10k and ran PBs for 5k. Magic!”
“Becky has given me lots of tips to improve my running technique and they have all worked but I would like to share the epiphany I had following one particular training session. During the session Becky concentrated on rhythm and she ran with us counting the rhythm she wanted us to follow. After the session, I was running on my own in Chatsworth Park, and wanted to go a bit faster. Becky’s words of wisdom popped into my head and instead of trying to go faster I just focused on changing my rhythm. I didn’t have Becky next to me but I ran along in time to a new faster rhythm that I was counting in my head and it worked! I didn’t have to put in lots of extra effort, I wasn’t more out of breath than usual but I had clocked up a new PB. Thank you Becky.”
