Leader Workshops support running groups in South Yorkshire


A Running Technique Workshop for South Yorkshire Run Leaders took place in September that focused on giving leaders tips and drills to encourage correct running form. The workshop was delivered by the local Accelerate Performance Centre in Sheffield and saw 15 Leaders across six different running groups take part.

The workshop is part of a series, organised by Emma Hurst CCSO for South Yorkshire. Emma has worked closely with Stuart Hale and Colin Papworth from Accelerate Performance Centre to ensure the series provides Run Leaders with practical information that they can use in their groups.

Emma said: “It’s important to support our current run leaders as they are the ones who are inspiring people to run”.
