help improve your athletes performaces.
Our Movement Skills workshops blend theory and practical, are designed
to stimulate a better understanding of the crucial movement patterns
that underpin all running, jumping and throwing activities that form the
basis of athletics. Then, to propose interventions that are not only
designed to improve an athlete’s performance, but also to minimise the
occurrence of injury.
These works are ideally for run leaders and coaches, looking to improve
their athletes performances.

THE BRITISH TEAM HAVE A RECORD BREAKING WEEKEND AT THE EUROPEAN
ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIPS WINNING AN INCREDIBLE 18 MEDALS
Dina Asher-Smith made history securing the European sprint treble,
smashing two British records along the way. There was a British one-two
in the men’s 100m final, where Zharnel Hughes took the gold followed
closely by Reece Prescod for the silver. European No.1 Hudson-Smith
lived up to the billing and was crowned champion on a super Friday
evening. Medals also came from Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Nethaneel
Mitchell-Blake, Holly Bradshaw, Meghan Beesley, Jake Wightman, Shara
Proctor and the 4x400m relay teams.
Both Laura Muir and the 4x100m relay teams delivered glorious golds as
the European Championships drew to a close, with Eilish McColgan taking
magnificent silver and Laura Weightman a well-deserved bronze, as Great
Britain & Northern Ireland topped the Berlin medal table.
Britain’s European champions and medallists including Laura Muir, Dina
Asher-Smith, Zharnel Hughes and Matthew Hudson-Smith will be the
headline acts at this weekend’s Müller Grand Prix Birmingham as they
take on the rest of the world.
Former Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth champion Greg
Rutherford will compete in the long jump for the final time before
retiring from the sport.
