Adult Speed Skills Run Workshop:

March 30th, 2019, 8-10am

Everyone wants to run faster, but most runners never take the time to develop speed as a skill. We are here to tell you...

SPEED IS A SKILL...IT CAN BE TAUGHT....PRACTICED...AND DEVELOPED

Many runners and even coaches think doing countless intervals and track workouts are going to bring about massive improvements in speed. But if the movements are not sound, the fact is, you'll be wasting your effort.

  • q-iconWhat will we be working on?

    We will spend the majority of the clinic focusing on the development of the two key elements of speed, stride length and stride frequency. For more details, see full schedule below.

  • q-iconWho is this workshop for?

    This workshop is for intermediate to advanced level runners looking to get faster. If you want to get faster and have never taken the time to develop speed as a skill, you have A TON to gain by applying these drills and progressions to your own training.

  • q-iconWhere will we meet?

    We will meet on the field behind the Schilling Farms YMCA. If the weather is bad, we will be in their gym.

  • q-iconWhat is the age limit?

    This is an adult workshop but high schoolers are permitted. Middle schooler’s are welcome with a parent attendee. We have a number of options over the summer for elementary and middle school runners.

  • q-iconWhat if my elementary or middle school runner could benefit from this?

    We have a host of options for elementary and middle school runners through our partnership with Memphis Youth Athletics. If you are looking for training for your young runner, get in touch with our head running coach Chris Winter, chris[@]buildpeakcompete.com
