What our lovely runners are saying…

Attended the Resilient Runners Workshop today – really wish this had been available when I started running more frequently. So many useful things learnt which I hope to build upon in my running.”

“Nice relaxed atmosphere. Some great practical tips can put into immediate practice”

“Loved this workshop…”

I have been really motivated by your workshop and have already written out my first 8 week plan and have chosen to concentrate on 3 areas of technique in my running. I have a race in the plan, and tempo parkruns in the build-up, rather than going flat out at everything! Thanks again for a great day and for reinvigorating my enthusiasm.”

  • Why we get injured
  • How we can reduce our injury risk
  • How we can run faster and get that PB
  • Understanding your training load and how it impacts you
  • Running more efficiently, using up to 30% less energy!
  • Running technique and how to prepare for changing how you run
  • Key elements of strength training for running

Led by UK Athletics Coach Chris O’Brien, you will leave with the knowledge, skills and techniques to take your running to the next level.

Frequently asked questions are here.

More from our fabulous attendees…

Thanks Chris a really informative, practical and useful day. I applied a few tweaks to my half marathon today (posture etc) and it immediately helped me feel more positive about a race I was dreading to the point I really enjoyed the race. I can see how small adjustments will really help my form. Great advice. I will be back for more.”

Really great and informative day, thanks so much. I think we all took away a few ‘improvement’ skills for our running which will be massively helpful!”

“Just a few changes made such a difference to my run yesterday also, it was a very undulating course and I kept reminding myself of your advice and wise words. It felt a completely different run! I can only see an improvement going forward. Thank you.”

“A brilliant day, thanks Chris! So much useful information! You clearly know your ‘craft’ inside out! Nice to know that little adjustments can help massively with improving your running style. Thanks again!”

Keep enjoying your running, beat your PBs, and reduce your risk of annoying and painful injuries.

Who is the workshop for?

Whether you have recently graduated from a Couch to 5k course or have been running for many years, the workshop has been designed to give you the tools to reduce your risk of injury, increase your speed and enjoy running the way you want to.

What is the format of the workshop?

The aim of the workshop is to help you change how you think about running by providing an environment where you can use group discussion and physical practice. The format overview is:

  • Introduction
  • Running injuries
    • Why we get injured
    • How we can reduce the risk and build resilience
  • Designing a warm up
  • Lunch (not included)
  • Running technique and form
    • Small changes = large improvements
    • Where to start and what to start with
  • Becoming a smarter runner
    • Essentials of session planning
    • Preparing our body for technique change
    • Moving better
  • Summary and finish

There will be two or three short breaks throughout the day as well as lunch.

We encourage you to work in groups and have lots of fun!

We will be doing exercises and demonstrations inside the venue and performing warm ups and technique change (gait training).

I'm worried about the running bit... will I get left behind?


Most of the running is done as part of learning about the warm up, the drills and technique. All running only lasts for a few minutes at a time, but has been designed to teach you best practice and get you thinking about how you run and how you can improve your running.
