Kent Sport Physiotherapy Clinic

Helping you get back to yourself


Running Workshop 2018

Saturday 21 July 10am to 12.30pm

The Kent Sport Physiotherapy Clinic would like to invite members, non-members and local runners to the fourth informative running workshop. In this workshop, we will be looking at how we spend time researching our running and whether this time could be better spent.

The workshop will be split in to two sessions; In the first session, we will re-visit running drills as there is always room for improvement. The second session will question how much time you invest into developing your own functional movements and identifying weaknesses. Simple body weight drills will be taught to minimise injuries and improve your running performance.

Where: The Pavilion, University of Kent, Canterbury Campus, CT2 7NL

Who: Open to members and non-members. All abilities welcome

Cost: £6 per person with complimentary tea and coffee on arrival

Payment: Must be made before the event by visiting reception at the Sports Centre or the Pavilion

To register: Either email your application form to: physio@kent.ac.uk or mail / drop it off to the Physiotherapy Clinic

What to bring: Running gear if you would like to complete parkrun first, plus additional running attire that is both comfortable to sit in during the lecture and then straight into the practical elements

Past running workshops

"Very enjoyable and full of useful information and tips that can be applied to all aspects of running. It was fascinating to get a much better understanding of what a warm up should really look like and what it is there to do and will certainly change my approach to warming up for my forthcoming parkruns as standing around chatting to other people while half-heartedly static stretching really is not going to help that much in terms of getting me ready to run! The running technique session was equally informative and enjoyable; thought it was an excellent idea to get the group to critique each other as allowed us to get to grips with putting the theory into action and how this can be tailored to individual styles." - Paul Sales
