Runners – Unlock Your True Running Potential

RUN101™ Workshops help runners discover their true running potential.

The RUN101™ Workshop is a live workshop that equips runners with the necessary insights, knowledge, and skills needed to enjoy injury-free and faster running

What is a RUN™ 101 Workshop?

  • Understanding running injury causation and the things to look out for in order to avoid running injury.
  • What constitutes great running technique
  • Understanding foot mechanics and running footwear

Graduate Success Stories 

Here’s what previous RUN 101™ Graduates have to say about the workshops.

A Letter from a RUN 101™ Graduate Paul:

Hey Brad,

Just wanted to let you know that since the run 101 workshop, I’ve been able to achieve a huge turn around in my running.

So far I’ve been able to eliminate all the pain in right hip – even though I have been doing MORE flying than last year (hard to imagine but true!); i really surprised myself with the 15k at Runaway Bay, running it at 5:27/k pace, being able to train consistently again without huge pain during and after, and this morning punched out 10k in exactly 54 mins without feeling like I was going to die!  This is fastest 10k I have run in over 12 months AND I’m going to run the half marathon on the weekend and looking at it with confidence!

I haven’t mastered the 90 steps per minute yet, but I think it is the attention on trying to get to it, + all the other collective tips you provided that has really helped!

The last 12 months were really challenging as a runner but since the workshop something has turned around and I’m starting to think that there is something left in this old body yet, which is good because even though I’m not fast I love to run and everything about it!

Thanks for your help! Cheers, Paul 2014

Firstly there is rarely a week that goes past that I am not so so thankful for you and your course. After not running for years due to injury (actually just poor technique) I still 3 years after the course run a few times a week pain free and LOVE it! Every time I start and get that familiar Running smile across my face I think of you and all that I learnt- literally changed my life. So grateful. Carly
